Ratmosphere Posted January 24, 2015 Report Share Posted January 24, 2015 There are some beetles I own that will crawl all over you and go back into their enclosure without a problem. However, some of them will latch on to your skin with those hook like feet and refuse to come off and the more you try to get them to go back in their tank, the more they resist. It is frustrating, especially if you have things to do that day. I have tried to offer them some fresh banana slices or pieces of wood to crawl on but they insist that they stay on. I am then left to try and pry 6 legs off of me without trying to hurt it and it is very difficult. Once one or two feet come off I try to get some more off. Once I get those off, the original feet just latch back on. The end result is an hour of the day lost and a finger/hand full of small razor like bleeding slits. Anybody have some techniques of getting a nervous beetle off of you? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
