Advertisement ok well i posted in another thread earlier, but im curious as to the husbandry of these beetles. s far ive gathered the eat fly larva(maggots) dried flesh/meat(rotted) and just your basic carrion. the beetles (adults) overwinter to lay eggs in the spring which in turn also eat carrion and maggots and other carrion beetles. so my question is how do or would someone keep them. i captured one so far. and put potting soil as a substrate. and i thawed out a frozen mouse to rot. im keeping this one in my garage due to the nasty smell. so des that sound alright so far? tomorrow i plan on catching more, so if anyone is interested in some im open for all trades and or sales.
