LarvaHunter Posted August 26, 2013 Report Share Posted August 26, 2013 I have been keeping 3 Phileurus valgus, 1 Phileurus truncatus and a Strategus splendens. I also went in the woods and busted open some soft decayed oak and have 6 large larva. I was feeding them ground up decayed oak that was heat treated and moistened mixed with some treated dirt as well. I bought some of the hardwood Japan that has mycelium in it for more nitrogen and it breaks the ground wood down super fast. Does anyone here know more on this subject? I am planning to sterilize and inoculate ground new oak in jars with .5 micron barrier for clean air. Any information would be great. I caught the beetles on a white sheet and modified stinger bug zapper straight bulb no cages white uv light, I think it works better than normal black lights that entomologists use.
