KEEPING LIVE BEETLES AS PETS IS A REWARDING AND UNIQUE LOW MAINTENANCE EXPERIENCE THAT IS GROWING IN POPULARITY AS A HOBBY WORLDWIDE. THE FOLLOWING CARESHEET CONTAINS ALL THE BASIC INFORMATION NEEDED FOR SUCCESSFULLY KEEPING LIVE PET BEETLES IN CAPTIVITY. 

ENCLOSURE :

LIVE BEETLES CAN BE KEPT SUCCESSFULLY IN A 5 GALLON CONTAINER.GLASS OR PLASTIC MAY BE USED, ENSURING SUFFICIENT VENTILATION AND AMBIENT HUMIDITY OF AT LEAST 50 %. 

SUBSTRATE + HABITAT :

IN GENERAL, FOR KEEPING LIVE BEETLES, WE RECOMMEND A SUBSTRATE OF HARDWOOD SHAVINGS, TOPPED WITH PIECES OF BARK AS GROUND COVER. MIST SUBSTRATE AS NEEDED. PROVIDE SPECIALIZED BEETLE SUBSTRATE BLENDS FOR VARIOUS SPECIES AS NEEDED.

 

LIGHTING + TEMPERATURE + HUMIDITY 

ROOM TEMPERATURE [19-24°C] IS THE OPTIMAL RANGE. LIGHTING CAN BE PROVIDED IF DESIRED, USING A LOW HEAT DAYLIGHT LED. HUMIDITY SHOULD RANGE FROM [ 40-60 %] THE SUBSTRATE SHOULD NEVER BE SATURATED, JUST BARELY MOIST. 

DIET + FEEDING 

IN NATURE, LARVAE FEED ON ROTTEN WOOD IN THE SUBSTRATE. OUR LARVAE KITS INCLUDE A PREMIUM BLEND CAPABLE OF SUSTAINING GROWTH THROUGHOUT METAMORPHOSIS FROM LARVAE TO ADULT BEETLE. LIVE BEETLES CAN BE FED LIQUID SWEETS INCLUDING DILUTED HONEY, MAPLE SYRUP OR BROWN SUGAR. BANANA AND APPLE, MANGO AND OTHER FRUITS ARE GENERALLY APPRECIATED. THE EASIEST METHOD FOR FEEDING IS TO USE BEETLE JELLIES. WE SUPPLY PREMIUM BEETLE JELLY DESIGNED TO MAINTAIN HYDRATION, NUTRITION AND EXPAND THE LIFE OF THE BEETLE. ADDITIONALLY, UNLIKE FRUIT WHICH REQUIRES REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT EVERY SECOND DAY, THE JELLIES DO NOT EXPIRE AND CAN BE REPLACED ONLY AS NEEDED.

NOTES ON PUPATION : 

 

IN GENERAL, WHEN YOU RECEIVE A LARVAE KIT, THE L3 GRUB WILL NOT YET HAVE CONSTRUCTED THEIR PUPAL CHAMBER. OFTEN TIMES, ONCE THIS LARVAE HAS ATTAINED MAXIMUM SIZE AND BEGINS TO PUPATE, IT IS BEST TO LEAVE THE KIT ALONE TO AVOID DAMAGING THE CHAMBER. IN THE CASE OF DAMAGE TO THE PUPAL CHAMBER, AN ARTIFICIAL CELL CAN BE RECONSTRUCTED USING DAMP TISSUE PAPER TO FORM A MOLD 1.25 X THE SIZE OF THE PUPAE, WITH THE CURVATUR OF AN EGG SHAPED ELLIPSE. THE GOAL IS TO ALLOW THE PUPAE TO HAVE SUFFICIENT COMFORT AND TRACTION IN ORDER TO ROTATE THROUOUGHT THE VARIOUS STAGES OF ECLOSION.
