Looking for something more advanced


Recommended Posts

Ive only kept a couple of fruit beetles and couldnt breed them as they were all males but what kind of beetles should i be looking for next?

 

 

Hello You really want to try something a little bit more challenging. You should try rearing some Goliathus sp.

 

Which ever specie you can get, they are really fun and challenging.

 

But I think you should really get good at breeding the regular cetonids first.

I'd recommend you try Xylotrupes gideon, it's a bit bigger than most flower beetles, should be easy to get in the UK and you're likely to have success if you follow guidelines. Here's a rhino beetle rearing guide: DtityusBookCover.jpg

 

If you're dead set on flower beetles try getting this book:

There is some good info on the net here and there but a cheap book will earn it's money back quick when it comes to beetle rearing.
