Hi everyone, I'm John.
I have been a fan of insects since I was little and this past year I have started getting more into the hobby of raising them. Last fall I raised a few ghost mantises and I am currently trying my hand at raising some wild caught bess beetle larvae. I hope to get more species of beetles as the summer progresses, possibly even catch some D. tityus larvae in the areas near my house. I would also love to try raising some of the exotic species at some point and will try to apply for the necessary permits to import them in the future. In the meantime, if anyone knows of stag beetles or ox beetles for sale in the US I would be very interested in getting in contact with them.
I look forward to being a part of this community with you all!
