The Staff of the Insect Brood is a Pre-Hardmode summon weapon that is dropped by the Scarabeus. It summons two or three beetles, depending on the size, directly at the cursor to attack enemies can jump higher when enemies are in the air below. Beetles will disappear for a few seconds or after hitting an enemy.

Its best Modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stats bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting sentry. Additionally, Minions and Sentries cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Staff of the Insect Brood has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
