Hi,glad to have found this site! I'm in zone 10, bought a magnolia tree from a lot cal nursery,but can't remember the name. Right now it has a lot of blooms but no beetles! It is 3 yrs old,saw beetles the first year,that's all. How can I get the beetles to help the flowers bloom? Thank You

There are many beetles that will eat and help pollination with this tree. I would recommend planting things nearby that will attract a variety of beetles. Beans, peas, potatoes, and many other garden vegetables will bring about a host of beetles, as well as many tender flowers.
