  1. Hi everyone. I just started breeding beetles so I still don't know a lot of things. I heard they hibernate. Is that true? And how can I know they're hibernating? I have 2 males Coelosis Bicornis and a female Heterogomphus. Right now, is a bit cold here, and the beetles don't seen to want to get out of the cage. Actually, don't even get out from the soil, they stay there for days. What could that be? Should I be worried or this is normal? They stay under the soil just because it is cold or they're really hibernating?

    Coelosis Bicornis hibernation

    Is there any problem if I take him out of the soil to see if he is alive sometimes?
  3. Hello. I got a Heterogomphus female but it don't seem to get used to being caged. It is not eating and it's pretty weak so I think, if I keep it, it will die. So I decided to release it but I can't release it on the place I found the beetle. I may be able to do it next week but I don't know if she will stay alive until there (I think so but not sure). So what should I do? Wait until I can go where I got her or just release her right know?

    Nope. I got them about a month 1 month and a half ago.

    Coelosis Bicornis hibernation

    In that case, they must be hibernating. What should I do? Just leave them there and don't touch them? And how long can it last?

    Female Strategus Aloeus (Ox Beetle)

    Bananas and apples didn't worked. Now, there is watermelon on the cage. But, anyway, I think I will free her, because she really didn't like to get caught. The other beetles don't try to escape and eat the banana, dig holes on the soil, etc but the female don't seen to get used until now, so I think I will free her.
  7. Hello everyone. I don't know if you remember me, but I caught 2 male Ox Beetles some weeks ago. Now, I found another beetle which I think it's a female Ox Beetle. I saw some pictures of females on the internet and really think it is a female, but I want you guys to confirm it for me. Here are some pictures:

    Female Strategus Aloeus (Ox Beetle)

    Oh! You're right! I saw pictures on Google and they are not Ox Beetles. Oh man, I was wrong all this time. Btw, where I found this Heterogomphus female, I can find some males too, right? And I didn't see her eat. What kind of fruits the Heterogomphus likes the most? (I feed the 2 males with banana and they like it, but the female is not eating) Thank you very much for the information

    Hello Everyone

    Hi. I'm from Brazil and I just got my first two beetles (2 Male Strategus Aloeus) and I'm enjoying taking care of them. I caught them in nature and I guess I will try to get a female or two. This is actually not my first post, but I was desperate on figuring out how to take care of these guys so I did another topic on "Breeding" section. But anyway, I'm here now giving you guys a hello.
  10. Hi again. My beetles (2 male Ox Beetles) are doing fine and I have only one problem: Fruit Flies. How do I get rid of them? I already saw people saying they can lay eggs on the beetles. I don't want to keep killing them so how can I make them stop entering the beetle's cage?

    How do I get rid of Fruit Flies?

    How often do I need to change the substrate and the fruits?

    Hello Everyone

    Thanks, but my english is not THAT good, and yours seems good too. But anyway, I do live in the city and there are ants everywhere. There are super tiny ones and really huge ones. Sometimes I see REALLY BIG RED ANTS, but it´s rare. What do you mean by "giant ant species"? If you mean something like 3cm, it is very common here see ants like this everyday.
