davehuth Posted April 19, 2019 Report Share Posted April 19, 2019 Hello - With the warmer weather in NY state, but without the undergrowth leafed out in the forest yet, I've been finding many small dung beetles that I'm pretty sure are Ataenius imbricatus, or something similar. I haven't collected them yet, but I'm curious about them and I'm wondering if anyone has advice about keeping and breeding them. I've never kept dung beetles before, so like most newbies I'm curious about supplying them with food. Lots of advice online, but not as many conversations discuss the aesthetics of husbandry, which has to be part of my spousal negotiations if I'm going to bring these happy poop eaters into the house. 😋What might I expect regarding mess, odors, divorce proceedings? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
