The Complete Guide To Rearing Darkling Beetles
by Orin McMonigle 2011
published by Elytra & Antenna

I bought this guide to assist in my first attempt to breed and raise darkling beetles. It has a great deal of info on care of adults and larvae and general care tips as well as stats on more than a dozen different species. There is a ton of color pictures of many different beetles. I highly recommend this guide to anyone attempting to raise darkling beetles of any kind. A+

Great book! Just bought it from bugs in cyberspace and have already read it twice or more :)

It covers all the things mentioned above, and covers the complete care for darklings and how to breed them.
