Hello everyone 

I have been keeping stag beetles for inwhile now and I got them as adults.

I'm wanting to buy hercules beetles but they come as larvae. I know how to care for them but on a beginners level

Can anyone help me out with some more information on caring for the larvae and the pupa

Larvar substrate?

Do the pupa still need feeding/watering?

Do I just leave them/should I make a seperate cell etc

It would be great if someone could help me

Thank you

Also can you house hercules beetle grubs together

You can make flake soil using oak pellets or collect rotting oak wood/leaves.

Pupa do not eat. However, it is advised  to spray them once in a while if the conditions get dry.

You can leave them in their cell or make a separate cell using floral foam. That is up to you.

As long as there is enough space. You will need to increase their space size as they grow.
