AlexW Posted February 27, 2018 Report Share Posted February 27, 2018 Every once in a while, someone asks on some pet insect forum. Time for my turn! Recently, Ive noticed quite some interest in the lesser-kept beetle species. Darklings (Tenebrionidae) have been enjoying a small boost in popularity, and even some of the typically-ignored groups (curculionids, meloids, etc.) have had a few keepers. Megascarabs/stags like Megasoma, Lucanus and Dynastes continue to be the popular-est ones, though. They are quite spectacular (I would love to see a Chrysina mass-emergence some day) but in my opinion the adults tend to be too short-lived =( And luckily new members seem to be appearing at a surprising rate, although it seems that they only manage to compensate for many vanished old members. What are your thoughts on the beetle hobby? And new members: How did you find Beetle Forum? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
