There are 3 main differences between beetles and bugs:
1 - True bugs suck up the sap from the plants or blood from animals through a flexible tubular mouthpiece called a probosics. Beetles chew their food!
2 - Beetles wings covers meet in a straight line down the middle of their back when closed, bugs wings and covers meet in a sort of diamond or cross hatch pattern!
