    Importation Question

    If I buy from a foreign seller like Titan Monster Beetles, can I import a native species like D tityus without trouble?

    Adding Soil to Substrate

    My largest Megasoma Sleeperi larvae has recently emerged at the top of the substrate two times. I inspected his substrate and it is clogged with feces. Could I mix in some sort of soil to reduce the percentage of feces, or do I have to get new substrate?
  4. I know the importation of exotic beetle species is illegal, but could I import a native species (Dynastes or Lucanus) from a seller outside of the US with a reduced amount of permits?

    Thoughts on new layout?

    I absolutely hate it and why why why did you guys remove the old one? Sorry. I got a little frustrated when I saw the new version. I thought it was Mantidforum for a second.
  6. Does anyone know what happens if customs seizes your imported beetles? I was just wondering? Do you get a fee or do they just I N C I N E R A T E them? (Im not going to illegally import beetles, Im filling out a permit)
  7. Hey guys, I havent logged on in a while but Im back! Does anyone here dump out the substrate and check on the larvae like the big d Hercules breeders? Thanks
  8. My Sleeperi Larvae seems to have almost doubled in size. His head capsule is now about the same diameter as his body. It was originally around half the diameter of his body. Are these definitive signs of a molt? All my info seems to say it is.

    Greetings from Quebec

    Welcome! Sadly, both you and I cannot find the big Asian species because of the laws... I love TinTin though!
  15. Ok, so I have my Sleeperi Larvae and all five have dug down to the bottom of the containers already. Is anything going on or is this normal?

    Male D. tityus

    I love the horns on the sides. You usually do not see those.
  19. Right now, Peter is listing Stag Beetke Larvae. The problem is, it might be Elaphus, but it might be Capreolus or Placidus. I would like to have a breeding pair if Elaphus. Is it worth the chance you might not get a breeding pair of Elaphus? Has anyone else bought one of these grab bags? Thanks.

    The Mysterious "Orzabus Lingroides"

    Oh so I just had a simple spelling error? Thanks.
  21. Mentioned in Orin McMonigle's Ultimate Guide To Breeding Beetles. Nowhere on the internet. No results. Where is the mysterious beetle? Orzabus Lingroides. Ok, if you read past that, in the book it mentioned a beetles called Orzabus Lingroides. The beetles sexual dimorphism was the front legs were flattened and spiny. When I search it up on the web, there are no results. Does anyone have a lead on this beetle? Thanks

    UK Beetle Newbie (Sort of)

    Hi! Im a newb as well, but the beetles looks to be a member of the chalosoma (atlas) beetles. So it is a rhinoceros beetle! I have no idea the scientific name (it could be chalsoma atlas or chalosoma Chiron kirbyi) Im not really good at that stuff. Are you going to try and breed him?
  23. I found this giant grasshopper/katydid on my window. He's at least 2 inches long and just the biggest one I have ever seen! Does anyone know what this is?
  24. First, sorry I'm posting so much Second. There is an old stump near my house in Indiana and I have identified at least 2 lucanus capreolus. how do I catch Larvae of Lucanus capreolus in case they are in the stump?
