Dermestid Beetle Colony For Taxidermy Care can be accomplished with a little planning. You will need a spare garage, shed, outbuilding or enclosed porch with heat and ventilation. Next you will need a container to act as your dermestid beetle enclosure to house and colonize the beetles. The Dermestid will colonize and live here in bedding that you choose. The bedding can be wood mulch shavings, cotton or shredded paper. They will also work at cleaning skulls in this space.

A thick plastic container with smooth sides will work for your Dermestid Beetle Colony. Many also use an old glass aquarium or old deep freeze chest unit. Just be sure to remove any silicone from any glass tank so the larvae can not escape by climbing the tacky silicone. You can also use a Super Slick Insect Barrier to Contain them in your dermestid beetle colony container

Lastly you will need a Dermestid Beetle Colony. You can Buy a large amount of Dermestid Beetles (10-30,000) or more for a small startup cost of several hundred dollars. 600-2,000 . Start with a larger amount and you will find that they will work at cleaning large skulls like those of a deer pretty quickly. If you get a smaller colony you may need to patiently wait for them to colonize to a larger amount.

Waiting for colonization of a small colony may be 4-6 months. Now, Isn’t being able to clean a trophy mount worth getting the right amount of beetles to work most efficiently at cleaning skulls?
