Why not just leave the rest of the log alone, attempt to breed what you got, and work with that? If you keep taking all the beetles you find, it's very possible you'll have trouble finding them in years to come...

I'd have to agree... Be careful. I had to cut back on my collection of Platycerus and one generation the population was smaller... Now everything is good again though :). I actually kind of moved around logs to be perfect beetle habitats in my woods. It helped. Now I have harvest zones and conservation zones, UNLESS D parallelus happens to be there ;). I need another shot at this species. Haven't found many. I actually did make a D brevis habitat with some old root pieces of white oak that became too dry.. I burried them with some oak chips in a hole... and found dorcus brevis way later... :). You should try this. It will help for years to come. MAKE habitats... this will help! :)
