Re: DERMESTID BEETLE COLONY
Some people use an old chest freezer to put them and the skulls in, and use heat lamps or something and a screen on the top. Not sure of the exact setup.
I think I still have a big chest freezer that was old as the hills and went up finally last year. My dad dragged it out and I think it's by the wood pile with a tarp over it. It is free for the taking for anyone wanting to use it for a beetle colony, you just have to come get it. Nice 16-18 cf or so size. I don't dare get into the beetle colony thing, if those things got loose into my work area/showroom area...
