Net-winged beetles are usually yellow or red with black markings on their body. They live on vegetation, flowers, and foliage, normally in wooded areas. Adult net-winged beetles eat plant juices or other insects, and their larvae live under the bark of trees. Net-winged beetles are usually between 11-19 millimeters in length and can be found throughout the United States.
