beetlegeuse Posted January 7, 2019 Report Share Posted January 7, 2019 hello! so i have a bunch of lucanus elaphus that've successfully pupated except the thing is, they pupated back in the fall and have yet to emerge to the surface. i check on them periodically and they're all clearly still alive, but i'm wondering if this is normal/if i should be concerned? i'm a little worried i'll miss their emergence since i occasionally travel, but usually not more than a week. how long can they survive without food after they first surface? thanks.
