If you see this picture in my post, of course you already know that this type of insect is a type of Koksi Beetle. This one beetle is very easy to recognize because of its distinctive features such as red with a blend of black spots while in the West this insect is named "Ladybug" but in Indonesia it is referred to specifically in the Bekasi area as " Beautiful spotted simerah ".
Some people say that Koksi Beetle is one of the small animals grouped in the order Coleoptera. They are easily recognized because of the appearance of a small round and black back and are found in several species in several places or regions. In Western countries, this animal is known as the Ladybug. While ordinary people call the koksi or ladybug beetle unique and beautiful, this is because their size and shield are hard and their wings are beautiful, but these beetles are not from ladybugs or (Hemiptera). These insects are known by garden farmers as predatory insects because some of their members prey on insect pests such as aphids and other small insects that are small in size from their bodies. However, there are some koksi species that also eat leaves so they become plant pests in the farmer's fields, but the types of foliage eaters are different from this one.
If you notice there are differences between each other in the sense that He has several types, and He is unique to his body but is not mentioned here. The Koksi Beetle has short legs and a head that looks crooked. This head position helps prey on small insects and makes it easier to eat other small animals such as aphids. At his feet there are feathers the size of fine microscopic ones, these feathers are not visible to the human eye because they are very fine (only visible with a microscope), the tip is like a spoon (the results of research by experts). in difficult places such as on the glass or on the ceiling. You can try it yourself by putting it in your hand and of course it won't fall down, this is because the hair on his leg is tightly attached to your fabric.
While the food consumed by this one beetle, we refer to several expert words as quoted in one of the written books "The majority of ladybugs are carnivores that eat small plants that suck on plants such as aphids.
In some cases, these koksi beetles also eat animals that are larger than their bodies by piercing their prey bodies with special tubes in their mouths to inject digestive enzymes into their bodies. Then they suck on prey tissue that is already in liquid form. When the koksi beetle feeds on dead animals, it enters the animal's body in a row to eat it from the body of another animal carcass from within its body or look for a hole in the body of a dead animal.
That's how the characteristics of the koksi beetle are often seen around us. Sometimes when We see Him eat then We are reluctant to hold Him. And sometimes people are attracted to the beauty of their bodies. Thank you very much.
