Asbolus verrucosus


Recommended Posts

Blue death feigning beetle from Bugs in Cyberspace. I was really lucky to meet a person from my area to order some of these guys for me. Thank you so much, Ruthie, for ordering these guys for me :)


If you want these guys, don't hesitate to get them from Bugs in Cyberspace. This is a real deal :)

They are great. I just got a few more from Peter. Hopefully they will start laying, as all they seem to do is mate when they are active.


Orin, Do you have any suggestions on how I can get past the tiny larvae stage?

That is all I have ever gotten, but I also had Eleodes with them at the time. Now the container has around 10 A. verrucosus and 1 Diabolical Ironclad that has been there since I got the first beetles.

If your small larvae are dying you're probably keeping them too damp. I've had luck getting the larva up to maturity but getting them to transform to beetles not so much. I have tried various methods and failed. The only way I've gotten any to maturity I'm not sure where or how they're pupating. I have some photographic evidence of C.B. adults but have not figured out a methodology other than a setup.
