Phanaeus vindex have arrived!

Recommended Posts

There was an article I read about baiting for Phanaeus beetles in Texas. They used many pitfall traps and experimented with Human, Canine and Swine feces. Apparently the swine feces attracted the most beetles. Maybe it's due to all the feral hogs out in the field compared to lower number or dogs and humans?


In south Texas near the mex border they trapped Phanaeus adonis in a pitfall trap baited with swine feces. I would love to have a Phanaeus adonis specimen in my collection.
