  1. he went burying into the soil when he saw me.. so i couldnt get a pic.. but i got a good look at him.

    i googled him and he looks like a "ANOBIUM PUNCTATUM". i google that beetle with marijuana and didnt find anything helpful.

    maybe someone knows if they are a pest or a predator.. good or bad.

  2. If you've only seen one and no signs of your plants being eaten its all good. Beetles feed on plants, so if you have a beetle problem your plants will show you. If you are really worried though just stop watering for a few days and lower the humidity. Most pests will die out or leave once the soil is bone dry and stays that way for a few days.
  3. gotcha thanks
