I am about to ask a very idiotic question (maybe for all beetle lovers), but do you have any cheaper grubs I can use for feeder (for my lungfish)? biggrin.gif
Maybe not the rhino beetle or stag beetle. Maybe some cheaper ones I can buy in bulk. Thank you!

Sweet C. atlas you got there smile.gif
C. atlas females will be harder to find because they come from lower elevations and most collectors collect at higher elevations where C. caucasus is found but not C. atlas

Hi Guys,

Congratulations on the many nice pictures and the breeding advice.

I'm new to the forum and just like you a big fan of beetles
and beetle breeding.

I live in Belgium and I'm breeding
many Cetonidae, some Dynastidae and some Lucanidae.
( Mecynorrhina torquata, Mecynorrhina ugandensis, Chalcosoma atlas, Chalcosoma caucasus
Allomyrina dichotoma and many others)

I see many many beetles here I would love to try breeding
one day. (small and big ones) rolleyes.gif

So if anyone has some live beetles for sale
and is willing to send them to Europe
I would be very happy to either trade with them
or compensate them for the beetles and the shipping costs.

Thank you all.

Best regards,
Titus

Can post or not?
And if I wanna start my own colony, does this mean they must first transform into beetles, then only can have grubs? @[email protected] What if they fly and attack ppl, like cockroaches...So scary.... rclxub.gif

If hook into skin then tickle the thorax to coax it to move,if you pull,it's not the beetles legs that break,most of the time is your skin that gets ripped tongue.gif

Rhinoceros and stag beetles don't release any stinky odor,maybe you mean stink bugs?they're not beetles
All the beetles kept in my room smile.gif
