  1. Last week
  2. I may have missed posting info for the September meeting, but rest assured there was no catastrophic club melt-down and that meeting still happened, ha ha. The October meeting will be on the 16th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, on Skype. As per usual invertebrates will be discussed, and I would like to discuss the topic of next year's calendar (return to physical meetings hopefully!) and the funding of a new club website/club library as well. Looking forward to seeing all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts

  4. This is a great resource! Thanks for sharing. More info is always good.
  5. I keep Lucanus elaphus together sometimes, but not more than two in a quart container. They've almost all been fine. You can hear them stridulating, probably when the other gets too close. Not sure if capreolus do the same.
  6. I've kept 6 small L1 Lucanus mazama together in a 16oz container and only 2 survived. Highly likely they are cannibalistic.
  7. Are Lucanus Capreolus larva cannibalistic? I've read some things that say they are. What are other species that are cannibalistic as larva?
  8. Look at his bangs 😂 I like his style!
  9. The golden hair on his head is too short.
  10. Yes - http://beetlesaspets.blogspot.com/2013/10/ But, the "Harold's organ" will most likely only be visible once the male L2 larvae have reached full growth, and even then, you will probably need to use a reasonably powerful magnifying lens to see it.
  11. Can L2 goliathus larvae be sexed? I know L3 can but can it be done on L2?
  12. Hello, I am kind of new to having pet beetles, but I do have some, and some announcements for the future. I currently have some L3 Goliathus Goliath, but I still don't know what they pupate in? I also have some L2 Cyclommatus Metallifer Finae Larvae that I will try to breed and sell to you guys, in like half a year. I also have a lot more Roaches, Isopods, and millipedes for sale maybe in the near future. Thank you for reading this.
  13. Hey all, I was reading through some older threads and saw @AlexW posted this link to an older beetle breeding book. Heavy on the science side but it might have info for some more unusually kept families of beetles. Also, it seems like it's public domain and I couldn't find anywhere to buy with a quick search, so the pdf should be *ethical* All the material is focused on beetles from Poland but I'm sure a lot of it is universal. https://rcin.org.pl/dlibra/publication/24250/edition/40297
  14. We’re a community of insect keepers seeking to provide proper husbandry tips for all types of insects and other inverts!!! We offer a marketplace section, experienced keepers, a photography section, and an active and growing community. Join today! *GIVEAWAY CURRENTLY UK AND U.S* https://discord.gg/57xRbNDWRN
  15. Hello, if there‘s anyone (expect the user who offered them recently) with information, I would love to recieve it. Best Regards, BeetlebreederGermany
  16. You must have named him Fabio?
  17. I uses flake soil and coconut fiber for egg laying tank.
  18. I add protein pellets as soon as I see new hatchings. But I notice. They don't touch it till a week or longer. I am not sure if they eat flake soil or they just don't need food that soon.
  19. Thank you! How important is it that I have flake soil? I understand that the larvae do ingest substrate before switching to just protein treats. I could probably try to make some in time.
  20. I noticed it's been raining. Anyone know any good spots in Oregon for Pleocomidae? I've caught them in the past, but only on private land when I had a reason to be there in the first place, like picking walnuts... in the 80's
  21. I have the Beetles of Eastern North America, but I don't have the Beetles of Western North America. I enjoyed the Beetles of Eastern North America, so I might have to get this book.
  22. Just got this today, a nicely done book, it's going to take a long time to go through. Without quoting specs and sounding like an advertisement, it's a must have for anyone west of the rockies. A quick look was encouraging with collecting information and ranges for species, somebody might find fault with some of the photos, but now I can id the remaining locally caught specimens in my collection, and make some collecting decisions as well. It seems the price was raised from the preorder, but it's still cheap when it comes to books, but I'd have paid more for a hardcover. The table of contents is not in alphabetical order, which I suppose there is a reason for-
  23. You can take the cell out after two months. After 6 months. You can open the cell. They can dormant like this.
