Bugoodle Posted June 27, 2020 Report Share Posted June 27, 2020 Is anyone interested in them? I've been finding unusually large specimens this year, some reaching almost an inch. They will be wild caught, largest tend to have hitch-hike mites, but I'll try to clean them off the best I can. Rice Beetles make interesting pets. They're a little picky and don't like scarab jelly much, but they do love banana, apple, strawberry, and spring grass. Be careful when it comes to fruit though! These guys like to burrow in their meals. Make sure to double check before tossing fruit out! They need regular humidity and love moisture and like to sleep under wet substrate or in/under food or anything wet. Adults have a life expectancy of 6 months or possibly longer. Although I have no clue how old they are, I had one for 6 months. They are mainly nocturnal, so these cute little guys make neat pets if you're a night owl like me. They are a little skittish, but will eventually grow immune to you. I won't be selling them, but for trade only. Do I need a permit to do that though? How much do permits cost?
