Dermestid beetles.


Recommended Posts

My pet shops don't have them, they don't even breed feeders- just order them :blink::huh:

Chain stores and stores that just order them will get them in with the crickets. The suppliers who send them the crickets have them in there to eat dead crickets.

I've found them in Petco/Petsmart cricket bins.

Dermestes ater or lardarius, but I'll take anything.

Dermestes ater are pretty big but they really... REALLY enjoy flying. When I had lardarius they flew occasionally but not nearly as much as ater. I've never seen my D. maculatus fly. Ever.

They must order them from somewhere else that doesn't have them, then...

D. maculatus sounds awesome!
