Dermestid beetles are a tiny carrion beetle whose larvae feed on organic matter. While they will eat anything from wood to wool, they are particularly fond of dried flesh. A healthy colony can gently clean large skulls and skeletons in a matter of days, which is why they are the choice for bone cleaning by museums and institutions around the world. These little black beetles are easy to handle and are gentle and non-agressive. They absolutely do not bite and are will typically flip over and play dead when disturbed. Larvae are brown and fuzzy and have a mild earthy musk. They molt as they grow from nearly microscopic to 1" long, building a nest of chaff (shed exoskeletons and dry, woody feces) that both the adults and larvae burrow and reproduce in. Adults don't eat much- their growing larvae do most of the bone cleaning work.
Dermestids are silent, dry, low-odor, and non-offensive. Colonies of a few hundred or many thousands can be kept easily in tightly sealed glass or plastic containers with good airflow. Detailed information on how to care for your beetles will be included with every beetle order. At this time, only orders of 100 beetles are available as our colonies are still establishing themselves. For larger orders, please contact us for availability.
