Genus Moneilema – Cactus Longhorned Beetle

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

The Longhorn Cactus Beetle is a large, flightless beetle that lives here in the Sonoran Desert, emerging mostly during the monsoon season.

They love to dine on Cholla and Prickly Pear Cactus, the one in the photo above is enjoying the flesh of fresh new Cholla bud. I was getting a little close for my comfort while taking this picture but it was not worried about me and just kept enjoying it’s breakfast.

Longhorn Cactus Beetles lay there eggs at the base of cacti and the larvae will burro inside the cactus roots and stems, sometimes killing the more susceptible cacti.

There is always fun, new and interesting things to see and learn in the Sonoran Desert, Southwest Trekking Professional Guiding Service has the professional guiding staff to show and teach you about the flora and fauna during your adventure tour.

Call 520.296.9661 for your hiking and/or biking adventure.
