Beetle Collector

Hello From CT!

Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Leo. I've been keeping and attempting to breed beetles for a little more than a year now. I have been on the roach forum for awhile (Roach Collector) and have decided it'd be good to join this forum to further my knowledge into breeding and keeping beetles. I have kept Dynastes tityus, Lucanus elephas (which I have just recently failed to breed), Megasoma punctulatus and ceruchus piceus. I only really keep rhino and stag beetles. I hope to learn a lot on this forum and get some really cool beetles!

I deal with most U.S. species, currently looking for a Lucanus elaphus pair. Really miss keeping that species!

I bought a pair in February, my male died in March and my female just died last week. Checked the cage and no eggs or larvae. I'm mad I wasn't successful breeding them because I was really hoping for larvae.

This is a difficult species to breed, they need the right conditions. I'm still trying to perfect the craft! Any idea what size male you had?

Thanks dude!

I pinned the male, he is 50mm. It seemed I had everything right with their setup, temperature and humidity so idk what happened with them.

Dang, I wonder why she didn't want to lay eggs!

Yeah I know! And the guy who I bought them from said he was 99% sure they had mated! I bought the pair via special order from Peter Clausen

I've D. tityus beetles and D. granti larvae. Also some Allomyrina dichotoma that are in the process of pupating. :)
