This mixture is 80% - 90% larvae with 20% - 10% beetles. We ship all Dermestid larvae in a sealed cup with a small amount of chow for them to eat during shipping. 
 
      Dermestid larvae can be used to help keep a roach colony such as dubias clean and healthy. They will eat molted skins, decaying plant material, dead insects and droppings in the colony.  These beetles help prevent mold and bacterial growth inside colonies due to the decaying materials that they eat. They can live side by side with roaches without doing any harm and would prolong time between cleanings

      Dermestid beetles are also known as flesh eating beetles and can also be used to clean skulls or skeletons. Many skulls and skeletons can be cleaned within a few days. For small skeletons we recommend 200-500 larvae. For larger skulls or skeletons such as a deer skull, we recommend 1000-2000. If you want to keep the colony by itself, you can either feed them raw meat or you can also use Repashy Meat Pie that will serve as both a food and a water source. 
 
      When these beetles lack something they need such as food or water, or even when disturbed the beetles may chose to fly. We recommend keeping a screened lid over the colony because of their abilities to fly.
