  1. i live in a pretty suburban area sadly but i'll definitely go and look for some when the weather improves!
  2. what permits would i need? im guessing its something from usda aphis? i want to make sure that everything is legal before get anymore beetles. thank you for letting me know!
  3. my first beetle larvaes arrived! there is also a female but i didnt get a photo of her. theyre eating very well.
  4. they werent from out of the united states, they shipped from florida so i assume it should be fine? they arrived yesterday and are doing well. if i do decide to import in the future, i'll make sure i have all the permits lined up!
  5. ah so thats probably why i couldnt find much information on it! i heard of it being used from a source or two but no where else. thanks!
  6. i recently purchased some japanese rhino beetles after eyeing them for years. ive done lots of research and consider myself well equipped to care for them. however, i have lots of questions about making kinshi and substrate for rhino beetles. the species i have (well i dont have them yet, theyre still in shipping) are Trypoxylus dichotomus and i havent been able to find too much information on making kinshi/substrate for them. i saw a video about creating fermented substrate from activated yeast and traeger wood pellets but im not sure if that would work for rhino beetles. i have substrate prepared for them, but in the future, id like to make my own substrate to save money and cater specifically to their individual needs. if anyone has tips or links for reference, it would be greatly appreciated! thanks
