carpet beetles?

Anybody use them? I am looking for information on how to store them and what they require for food when skulls are not on the menu. Any pics or info would be great.

Re: carpet beetles?

Bodhi im prob about an hrs drive from you and i welcome youor anyone else to come and check out my beetle colony and the setup i use. the information i have aquired over the yrs. was all free to me from net research and i would offer it free to anyone else. ps i beleive that carpet beetle is only a general term that some folks use for demestid beetle.

Re: carpet beetles?

Johnny, much appreciated! I was refering to dermestid beetles but I forgot how to spell it :-)

I have done some research but really cant find anything on what kind of housing is best for them. Maybe after the holidays we can get together.
