After hatching from eggs deposited in the ground, tiny blister beetle larvae called triungulins get busy finding food. In species of Meloe, finding food begins by scaling a nearby blossom to await a visit by a female bee seeking nectar and a bee arrives at the flower, the triungulin rears-up and grasps the hairs of the bee with specialized claws on the tips of its tiny legs.

The red-striped oil beetle, Berberomeloe majalis is an insect in the genus Berberomeloe, found in Europe, with a typical length around 5 cm (2 in.).Its large size and the bright red bands around its body make it unmistakable; its coloration is aposematic, reflecting its ability, in common with other oil or blister beetles in the family Meloidae, to squirt a caustic liquid if attacked.

Distinguishing features of male courtship behavior in Pleuropompha include the performance of all acts including genital presentation from a position completely off and behind the female (posterior position), and the occurrence of a unique non-tactual display termed antennal fanning.

Non-receptive females frequently react to antennal fanning with an equally distinct rejection response. adult blister beetle Meloe franciscanusin the winter months. The Mojav e Desert ecosystem supports species of bees, which is the J.D.
