Beaverboy posted on here once that you can scoop up the bedding around the waterer in a chicken pen, and that will give you an instant colony. So, you can see if anyone around you has chickens and try it. Guess eather the eggs or larva are in there.

Check with any local colleges. Try the biology or medical depts. They may even just do any skulls/skeletons for you. The beetles have to eat. :D

Goto ebay in the taxidermy section supplies and ther are usually some on ther for sell. But I will tell you this if you trap and have dried furs and just one beatle gets out they can ruin your furs. If you need any help just let me know.

PostPosted: 01 Mar 2009, 20:43 
I you are not in a great hurry, wire the lower jaw in place with aluminum wire, (steel wire will rust and stain the bone) put the skull or skulls in a small wire cage and throw it in a farm pond. The skulls will be clean in no time. The brain will liqufy and run out the brain stem hole. I have cleaned several deer, cow and horse skulls this way.
