    Lucanus elaphus hibernation

    Would the fridge (38-degrees) be okay for hibernation? Does The Eastern Eyed Click beetle also require a hibernation period? I have one that just emerged.

    Lucanus elaphus hibernation

    Does Lucanus elaphus require a hibernation period? I have a male that just eclosed a few days ago after less than a month in his pupa. He seems active, and his exoskeleton has hardened and looks normal (although one of his wings didn't expand properly). Should I put him in the fridge (is that too cold), or should I just keep him at room temperature and try to find him a mate? This is the first large beetle I have ever raised to an adult.
