Dermestid Beetles

Dermestid Beetles are great scavengers for other feeder insect colonies, especially dubia roaches. They also work great with other roach species and crickets. Dermestid beetles will feed on dead insects and waste, helping to keep the culturing container cleaner and odor free.

Dermestid Beetles are most well known for their ability to strip carcasses of flesh, and are often used to clean skeletons or skulls.
