Beetle Larvae are a passive mob added by The Erebus. It is found in the green places of the Erebus dimension, and has 8 (Heart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svg) health points. It is a good source of food for early adventurers.

Jumping on the larva causes it to burst and die. Beetle Larvae dying in this manner will drop a Slimeball and inflict the mcw:Status effect#Nausea on the player for 6 seconds. Stomping on larvae also gives a rare chance of a Diamond dropping.

Killing the beetle without squashing it will drop 1 Beetle Larva food item, which the player can consume to restore 1 (Half Heart.svg) health point.

Beetle Larvae will consume any wood they find, breaking it slowly first; each time they consume wood they grow a little larger. if this happens 8 times the Beetle Larva will mature into a Beetle.

A Beetle Larva.
