    Big Tine have a great day

    How many beetles would you need to clean a deer skull, Do you send any kind of info on how to take care of them?

    The beetles I got from Ken were well packaged and very healthy/hungry. They started working right away. In a few months I would say the amount has at least tripled or more. Many new itsy bitsy larva that I can't even count.

    Ken also encloses a care sheet that is very easy to understand. I have been using a gel stuff to water captive crickets from the pet store and that seems to work too.

    Depends on how many you have. I bought bugs from Ken a few months ago. What I have now cleans a fox sized skull within 24 hours.

    For skull cleaning with beetles, you put in a properly skinned and prepped skull. They will eat hide but it takes weeks, sometimes months. Do things the right way and things are cleaned in short order. You skin the head, remove eyes and the brain and most of the flesh. No, you don't just throw in cut off heads.

  18. Ken, email sent about beetle inquiry. Sounds like nothing but positive comments about your beetle supplies

    Sarge A little too much Lord *hic*

    Ken's Bugs are so awesome that I think if you did a DNA trace on almost everyone on Taxinet has either Ken's Bugs or bugs from bugs someone got from Ken.

    My colony has become a ravenous horde. They are tearing through meat and bones left and right. Thinking of building a bigger tank by I am afraid they will eat me out of work if I feed them too fast. I can get 3-4 skulls a week out of them right now but if I feed them at that rate I might as well BUY STOCK IN ARMOUR HOT DOGS. Guess I better get out and get some more killing done to keep them happy.

    When you think of it in those terms makes you wonder who is actually in charge. If I don't keep killing for them they will quit and then I don't get paid so does that make me a hired gun working for the bugs or do they work for me? ???

    I guess He who holds the Raid Can is in charge right. ???

    Thanks again Ken

  20. Yeah, ive spent lots of time on this website reading through pages and pages of information, before I even posted any responses. Seems funny that my very first post was a request for beetles, but that got me thinking I should thank everyone for taking the time for placing SO MUCH INFO on this website!! Using the searches, and the archive data provided a great deal of info which helped a LOT!. Thanks again to everyone who contributes!
