I have a bunch Dalotia coriaria (=Atheta coriaria) aka rove beetles in the enclosure don't rea;;y know how they got in but was wondering do they cause any harm to baby Milipedes? I had seen my Ivories lay couple times in Januray and still I don't see anything or nothing from my bubblebees or scarlets. Also do you know if they cause any harm to them while molting?

Can’t find anything on that but a potential plus is that they eat mites so that’s helpful if they don’t eat the millipedes themselves

Rove beetles and even larvea are predatory. I would replace substrate and start over. Thoroughly sanitize everything.I recommend boiling any wood or stones in the enclosure also.good luck. Hope I was helpful
