    Scarab emergency

    Tomorrow morning I have to leave for a 2-day (1 night) trip. How will I keep my two Cotinis beetles fed and hydrated? Keep in mind that they tend to create foul-smelling messes in the substrate very frequently and that they feed almost constantly on wet sugary substances like fruit. I have no beetle jelly, and my biggest container is a giant salsa jar. Should I: dunk a peach on the verge of fermenting in there? explore homemade beetle jelly (what stuff goes into the commercial jellies that prevents rot and fungus)? wrap some plastic food wrap (with holes) around the jar and hope things don't get too stinky or dessicated when I come back? It's always done this in the past. @Hisserdude!

    Putrid specimen

    A drowned Cotinis beetle I have refrigerated has developed a nasty stink, but appears fine. How should I save it, and how should I store dead insects for long periods before they are put into boxes? Will freezing it destroy its structure?
