  1. Sorry to intrude, but how do you sex bdf's? I've had three for the past year, but I don't know which ones are male or female. I know I've got one female, because I found a couple of eggs last year.

    Yesterday my D.tityus pupa finally emerged. It turned out to be a female. Now I just need to find a male...

    Tiger Beetle egg care

    Yep, it is a Cicindela species. Thanks! They are in damp sand from the place the beetles were collected.

    Tiger Beetle egg care

    Hi all, a couple of weeks ago I caught 3 tiger beetles( 2 males and 1 female). They bred, and I separated the male so the female could lay eggs. I started to notice eggs on the walls of the cage. ( I keep her in a small plastic kritter keeper with 3 inches of sand) I read that I could feed the larva sowbugs, but how should I keep the eggs?

    Hi all, I am from the New England area. I love all kinds of insect with my favorite orders being Coleoptera, Mantodea, and Lepidoptera. I am not really new to insects, and I currently keep a lot of different species. Nice to be here!
