The confused Rice Flour Beetle (Tribolium confusum) is an easy-to-culture, convenient food source for poison dart frogs, bumble bee toads, fish, and other small animals that enjoy smaller food items. These Rice Flour Beetles cultures consist of around 100 breeding adults and a good amount of flour media. They some time to start producing, which is why we age ours a full month before shipping. However, when Rice Flour Beetles do breed, they are very easy to maintain and can go months without any upkeep, making them an ideal 'special treat' or 'backup feeder' if you run out of other feeder insects. Adult Rice Flour Beetles are capable of emitting an unpleasant tasting chemical when threatened, making them unpalitable to many animals. Their larvae, however, are very nutritious and palitable, and most poison dart frogs, bumble bee toads, fish, and other small animals will eat rice flour beetle larvae with relish. Rice Flour Beetle larvae are harvested from the media with a Rice Flour Beetle sifter.

Great, hassle-free feeder insect Review by Lucia
Quality
The rice flour beetles are perfect. Low maintenance and my green anole loves eating the larvae. I also tried feeding him one of the beetles, but judging by his reaction they must taste truly horrible. Better to stick with the larvae. (Posted on 12/11/2015)
