    Catching tigers

    I always find them basking on logs where its really bright, usually in a clearing next to a stream on sunny days. We have a wildflower reserve in my town that is quite literally crawling with them. Low tech method: I usually open a sandwich bag and put some taffy or jolly rancher in it, then place it on a log where there is observed hunting activity; these guys all tend to be in the same area hunting. Some will fly away initially, but little flies will be attracted to the bag, which is their prey. I usually come back to like at least 3 or 4 inside the bag (its much warmer in there + the food), and then I just seal it before they can exit. Works everytime, sometimes I dont even need the candy or flies, they bite down on the baggie and I just pick them off and throw em in. Either that, or I just catch em with my hands lol

    Greetings all! Lu from PA here! I've always had an interest in athropods and reptiles, even as a small child. Ive raised bearded dragons, tomato hawkmoths, and various Saturniids, and I've been pinning insect specimens for a long time as an outlet for creativity. Now I think I am ready to try my hand at breeding beetles! I am here to learn more about the rearing process of these creatures, and purchase some new beetle buddies, preferably of the Scarabaeinae, Dynistidae, and Cetoniinae varieties. Looking forward to meeting other people and making some human friends too! :^}
