Armored stink beetles (Eleodes) scavenging at an ant nest. Photos by Daniel Hetzel. Identification confirmed by Prof. Eugene Anderson (UC-Riverside, retired): " ...these are Eleodes beetles and Pogonomyrmex ants. Yes, this is normal behavior and very common. The beetles are looking for vegetable debris and moisture in the garbage the ants throw out from their hill. The ants don't care--Eleodes beetles mean nothing to them!"
