    Likelihood of WC D. tityus females to be fertilized?

    I think I used to have a little bag of Osmoderma frass but I think I used it for something a while ago. No matter, I'll have to stock some up for next time haha.

    This is my first time keeping any rhinos lol.

    I also feel like I should mention that I had to buy some flake soil to mix into the substrate. I got no eggs with my original setup, probably because there was a lot more topsoil than rotten wood and leaves.

    I would do that if I had any Dynastes frass. This is my first time keeping them though.

    Likelihood of WC D. tityus females to be fertilized?

    I just checked yesterday and so far I have 20 eggs!! I also noticed 2 egg mites which were swelled up like balloons. I killed them and I hope there aren't too many more. I guess I should've cleaned the females before setting them up....

    Baby rhino roaches!

    They're so cute! I'm loving these updates.

    How often should I check?

    Likelihood of WC D. tityus females to be fertilized?

    I set them up on Monday, so I was planning to wait about a week. Perhaps I should wait longer though. Also, I have both females set up in the same tank, is that a bad idea? And I'm not able to move them to other bins due to material shortages. I could buy some flake soil if I really had to, but I'd rather hold off on that until I get larvae, to be honest.

    I have them set up in a 5 gallon with ground rotten wood and leaves and topsoil. I'll check this weekend for eggs. I'm really excited 😁
  10. I was given two live female Dynastes tityus a couple days ago. What is the probability that at least one of them is ready to lay eggs this time of year?

    Super interesting, thanks for the links. I wish there was a follow-up about the larva collected live in the beetles in the bush post.

    How do you not have mold on the egg crates in your isopod enclosures? I've seen people use it before, but in my experience it molds far too easily.

    Wow, that's gorgeous!! Are you collecting them to preserve or breed?

    What do you all make of this?

    I was going to say it could be a parasite like a horsehair worm or something, but if it isn't moving like a worm then I'm not sure.
