What Will I Need To Work With Dermestid Beetles Successfully Raising Dermestes Maculatus and Avoiding Issues?

Dermestid Beetles Housing Colony 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 dermestarium 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.  Dermestid Beetle Mites can be avoided by keeping humidity below 55%.

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 .
