    Light trapping

    If i could afford buying that type of setup I'd definitely be out, so unfortunately any super serious collections will have to wait till after college...:(

    Does anyone here have knowledge on how heavy approximately megasoma sleeperi/punctulatus L3 larvae become before pupation? What's the max weight i should be expecting?

    Fungus gnats

    Thank you, i will take this into consideration! Since posting I've eliminated the population down to almost nothing. Will tinker around to see if i can't completely have them gone.

    Hello, was wondering what everyones opinions were on the topic of inbreeding. Has it been successful in the past and if so, to what extent.
