Larva - the feeding stage
The job of the larva is to eat and eat and eat. Food eaten at this time is stored as fats and larvae can grow 2000x their size during this stage.
Pupa - the transition stage
When the larva is fully grown, it stops eating and becomes a pupa. It may look like nothing is going on but big changes are happening inside.
Adult - the reproductive stage
The larva's job was to eat. The adult's job is now to mate and lay eggs. Most species of adult beetles get energy from tree sap and ripe fruits.
