Hello,

I am a newbie here too. I am curious about the beetles. I have always wanted to try that.

Do you keep them indoors? If not how do you keep them over winter?

Hello! Welcome!

I have taken a buck skull to OSU and fed their beetles. The skull was finished in no time and all I needed to perform was de-skin the head & eyes.
