    Yep, they like apples but will probably eat anything. They could be assassin bugs, maybe try seeing what they do with a stunned/killed cricket?

    I would try feeding them fruits, boxelder bugs and other true insects like leaf footed bugs and stink bugs will readily eat fruits for me

    Can you get any closer pictures or bigger pictures? Where and what did you find them on?

    Tiger beetle

    Hi I caught this tiger beetle while camping a couple days ago, I am in Michigan. It eats killed/half killed crickets readily.

    I feed them small crickets that I prekill or stun. They will take them right from tweezers if the crickets are stunned.

    Facebook page?

    Hi everyone Does this site have a facebook page? If not maybe we should I could make one if it is wanted. I noticed the mantid forum had one and figured our beetles need one to

    Larva I found under a log

    Maybe we can all start growing click beetles and get some care info put together on how to breed them

    Zophobas morio ”Superworm”

    Eleodes are great! I have tiny babies in six 6 quart totes of substrate, three different species (Eleodes goryi, subnitens, and acuticauca) Once they grow a bit I may start trading and selling them.

    Larva I found under a log

    I will separate them and do like you said It would be cool to breed click beetles, I don't think it is very common for people to do them.

    Larva I found under a log

    I may have to try that, just put some dry cat food in the substrate? Would I need to worry about separating the larva?

    Larva I found under a log

    I don't really have a lot of nsects that I could feed them, well, I do have some of those little tiny bean weevils but I doubt the larva would eat those.

    Larva I found under a log

    I hope they are some sort of darkling Other than Tenebrio molitor anyways I already have a colony of those I am assuming that either way they should like carrots and whatever my mealworms and Eleodes will eat.

    Zophobas morio ”Superworm”

    Yes, Eleodes are wonderful and eat almost anything you give them They love fish food! Along with fish food I give mine carrots, apple, oats, hermit crab food, cuttlefish bone, cat food, and whatever else I decide at the time

    Zophobas morio ”Superworm”

    I have never tried potatoes with them, or Eleodes. Maybe just give them both and watch what happens?
  21. jreidsma

    Zophobas morio ”Superworm”

    Yep, that would be Eleodes They are easier than stags in the sense that they don't "need" wood. They are perfectly fine eating other items like carrots.

    Tiger beetle

    I wish I had tiger beetles more commonly around here, they are rare to find, at least to me anyways
  23. Hi everyone Just wondering if it is legal to keep beetles that could be seen as "pest" like ten lined junes beetles and Cotinis? These beetles are not in Michigan so I am thinking they cannot live in the cold winters we have. I think these beetles are rather pretty and was thinking of keeping some and breeding. But I would not release any. My only question is, could I get fined or something for keeping things like those?

    Bolitotherus cornutus

    Nice pictures and beetles!
