  1. Lucky! I wish I could find ox beetles around me. I also had issues making substrate for my beetles(incorrect temps/molding), so I ended up just buying some. this is where I get my substrate from, https://www.insectbrothers.org/product-page/copy-of-beetle-substrate-2-gallon-pack As for your other questions, I will let someone more experienced answer them, but I believe you will have to separate the larva to keep them from hurting each other at later stages.
  2. Hi, I have a bunch of darklings and was wondering if anyone could help me ID a few? It seems many darklings look identical but are different species. I believe they are all Eleodes and the large one is eleodes armata? Thanks for any info! https://imgur.com/a/oK9Pk6b
  3. I am more than willing to trade. I currently have the larvae and a freshly emerged male and female. Let me know! thanks
  4. Ok, after collecting a bit more, I have well over 50+ larvae leaving many more for the natural population. Has anyone bred or cared for these beetles?
  5. Cool do people keep these or are they pretty much undesirable because of their size?
  6. I found this little beetle in the wood with the grubs, is it a stag beetle? If so, it is the littlest stag beetle I have ever seen.
  7. I found a ton of these grubs while breaking apart a moist rotten log. Does anyone have any idea what type of beetle these could be? They look like stag beetle larvae to me, but I am not sure. I live in Connecticut.
  8. Hi, I have been interested in beetles for a long time but just recently got back into them. Currently, I'm keeping tiger beetles, warrior beetles, and some common isopod species. The beetles that I am looking to get into are rhino beetles and stag beetles.
