Hello from Michigan!

Hi there everyone,

I’m fairly new to beetles and bugs in general, and I absolutely LOVE all sorts of stag and rhino beetles, as well as ironclads! I currently own four  blue death feigning beetles, am trying to breed mealworms, and am keeping around 20 locally collected isopods of multiple species. Today, in fact, I ordered two Strategus aloeus Ox beetles and am super excited for them to come. I have an enclosure set up for them with coconut fiber, and have enough beetle jelly, but am not quite sure about what I should keep the humidity like. If anyone has experience with owning these, I’d be very grateful for some advice. Thanks everyone

Hi! Michigan has 6 stag species and a rhino species! There are also many many tiger beetle species along the lake shores. You can collect them all if you look hard enough. I'm stoked for you on your new order! Best of luck!

That’s awesome, I didn’t know we had 6 stag species! And thank you, hopefully the ox beetles will get here safely. Do you keep any bugs at the moment?

Yeah I keep a lot of stuff. I'm into all sorts of beetles, not just the big showy ones, so I got longhorns, tiger beetles (3 species), ground beetles (3 species), bess beetles, stags (nothing big so far), scarabs (flower & dung), rove beetles, fire colored beetles etc. Join this discord: https://discord.gg/2PTU7d , it's really awesome with other beetle lovers.
