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 for Taxidermy Purposes. 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
