d. tityus Questions


Recommended Posts

I have 4 L1 d. tityus Larvae coming in the mail tomorrow and I just got a gallon of substrate today, I separated it out into four containers with small holes poked in the top (to hold in more moisture) here are pictures of the containers and substrate:




My questions are:

1 is that enough soil?

2 if it's not enough can I combine it and house more than one larvae together

And 3 how often do I need to change the soil? (the soil is flake soil from bugs in cyberspace)

I'm thinking that will last you about a month. Once they are L2 they definitely need a bigger sized enclosure. No, don't combine larvae. Change the soil once you notice a lot of frass. Don't switch out the entire substrate, mix some of the old in with the new.

Can I use organic potting soil aswell? If so is there a brand you recommend?

You can also ferment trager pellets to make beetle soil, there is some threads heat on the forums, they may be stickied if not they should be

Ya I took a peek at those, 6 months fermentation is a long time though. I'm actually thinking about buying a rotting log from you in 2 or 3 weeks, I can't find rotten wood here and you have a good deal so why not.
