Wolfie. There's no chance that you will find any species of dermestidae on any kind of  fruits. You can find them on flowers,dead animals, in your own house on carpet etc. Never on fruits. So let that be clear to everyone. :)
I don't have a diploma but one of my passions is entomology and macro photography of insect so I think you can trust me in that matter ;D

noooo Spare that bananaaa! You are so cruel. I will admit. They WILL eat almost anything from pollen to dead elephant. They are omnivores. ;)
But you won't find in nature situation where dermestidae eat defenceless banana.

The Dermestids have been breeding slower then i wanted but still faster then the other beetle colony i have. They are sitting at double the ammount i started with. I started with just some that i found around my home. Now i have 50+ in the colony. The frass builds up fast with 50!
