    Says fricking who? Plenty of people like bugs, and its just stuff like roaches that get singled out for being gross and instinctively repulsive.

    Eastern Hercules Beetle, right? Those things are pretty cool. I found one while I was at work a while back. Kind of regret not taking him home.
    As for beetles, they are an easily recognized category of bugs. Isn't known to have stinger or painful bites unless it has pinchers, and they look cool. Some of them eat other pest bugs, so the only hatred comes from ones that do target crops. A lot better than some mystery bug which bites, stings, is poisonous, smells bad, has diseases or parasites, is a parasite, is annoying, is scary looking, or runs too fast. Other bugs can frigg off.

    Insects are only despised if: they spread diseases, destroy crops or cause harm from biting

      Sir, I regret to inform you of your naïveté, but this is incorrect. The average normie has an intransigent antipathy towards all arthropods, regardless of how dangerous or docile they may be.

    I want to get one as a pet. Specifically this species. I don't know much about beetles.
    Anyone know what this one is called?

      Hercules beetle. They’re pretty easy to raise or breed

      80% of their life is spent as a grub, the adult phase only lasts for a few months before it dies, so you basically have to breed them and look at dirt jars

    If you squash them a lot of guts would come out.
    That grosses me out and makes me think of them as walking guts water balloons.

    they're cute, harmless, come in a bunch of neat colors, and are kind of clumsy, which adds to the cuteness.

      I'm sure gardeners don't enjoy a bad grub infestation chewing on their vegetable roots.

      Weevils are widely hated for their propensity to get into bags of rice/grain and absolutely demolishing them.

      Carpet beetles are also annoying in households, especially in museums, as they'll eat preserved specimens.

      So I can imagine certain professions hating beetles, and loving other insects, such as flies, for being useful pollinators, decomposers, and feed for their chickens.

    I assume because most species don't bite like true bugs, they aren't obnoxious in the way flies are, and most aren't seen as pests like roaches. Also, other widely beloved insects like Mantids aren't nearly as common, and the massive variety of beetle species make them more "interesting." Personally, I love all arthropods

      Oh! And many species are really big in comparison to most other insects. People like big animals for whatever reason
