satchellwk Posted July 6, 2012 Report Share Posted July 6, 2012 Hello, I have recently collected 3 different beetle species, however, on some I don't know exactly what they are or how to properly care for them. All were found in Tuscaloosa County, AL. First, I have a (I think) Pasimachus sp. How hard are they to care for? Do they just need dirt, food, and a hide ot thrive? Next, I have some unidentified darklings. Would they need standard darkling care? Finally I found the one beetle I'm most excited about. I really want to say this is a female Lucanus, but I honestly have no idea. If it is Lucanus or something similar, is it a female and, at this point in the year, would she be fertilized? It was under a log, making me think it might have been in ova laying mode. I've found lots of lucanus care sheets online, but if there's any specific info anyone wants to throw in, I would gladly accept! Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm still really new at beetles, and my previous endeavors have been less than successful, so I could probably use all the help I can get. Thanks!
