RexaDynastes3516 Posted July 7, 2020 Report Share Posted July 7, 2020 Just a bit ago I removed a pinacate beetle from the freezer, which I intended to preserve after it had died of natural causes, and discovered it had released it’s stench! Or, not exactly stench, but a strange musty scent. It’s hard to describe, but it is similar to that of the smell mealworm beetles release when bothered. I was wondering if there was a way to preserve pinacates without triggering the smell. Also, I’m curious to know how they smell to those who have been sprayed. Wondering if the smell is different from person to person, because to me it doesn’t ‘stink’. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
