Beetle (6/10)



  1. hey shades... if i post a picture of my thing, can u identify what it is? fuzzy white strings.... i read somehwere that oyster shrooms starts out as spider web like stuff so idk
  2. my kinshi bottle started making tons of thin white stringy stuff... is this kinshi or mold? i can never tell
  3. hey this is hardshell and i also live in the WA we can find rugose/ceruchus/and platucerus in our state small but still cute
  4. good luck with your substrate!!!
  5. i love your rove beetle part of the blog! very interesting... how well are they with handling? do they spray chemicals?
  6. ah ok i just wanted something so control mite/nematode
  7. is it a good idea to put hanful of red predatory mites in my stag beetle cage? (both adults, eggs, larva, and pupa) or will it eat my eggs and stuff?
  8. just one of my old video i think straitus is the only stag beetle that will actually fight with other males in WA anyways since i am going beetle hunting for few days, do you guys think rugose larvae can be bred and pupated in oyster mushroom kinshi? they seems to die very easily... ( fermented substrate/ shreded oak does not work for me)
  9. for me..... early spring or late winter is the only/best hunting season for rugose/platycerus and ceruchus and summmer for tiger beetles :3
  10. nice microscope! i think its nematoads
  11. hey! welcome you should grow carnivorous plants very exciting to grow
  12. so i have this crazy idea... to put multiple pairs of p.mulleri ( OR cyclomatus) in a giant tub filled with giant breeding logs and beetle jellies... will females kill each other? or eat eggs? also if u happen to sell giant oak breeding logs PLEASE PM me i might also buy oak leaves so pm me
  13. you can get a permit to "keep" exotic beetles by making a tiny public museum xD i know a guy in seattle who opened up a tiny bug corner museum.. but he moved to CA to retire
  14. @bill ive been busy upgrading my carnivorous plants... ( growtent)
