Slightly Green Six-spotted Tiger Beetle (Cicindela sexguttata) | May 12, 2006

Slightly Green Six-spotted Tiger Beetle (Cicindela sexguttata), originally uploaded by Garrett and Rachel.

In our search for more color we found this slightly green beetle. Taken near the Eastern Redoubt at Allatoona Pass, North Georgia on the day posted. 1/2" . Larger size has slightly more detail.

HOME SWEET HOME:

The female digs a separate hole for each egg. When the eggs hatch, the larvae live in their "birth holes" for life.

Adult Six-spotted Tiger Beetles spend the day looking for food, then return to their burrow (the same one they were larvae and pupae in) at night. Adults also spend the winter in their burrows.
