Dermestid Beetles!

Found almost a dozen dermestid beetle larva behind my cat's food bowl, (she spills a lot of food and there was a buildup of old cat food pieces behind the bowl). I have put them in a small Tupperware with a thin layer of dry coconut fiber as the substrate, and I have a lot of cat food, insect sheds, and dead insects inside as food. They like the insect matter better than the cat food, and they are growing fast! Hopefully I can successfully rear and breed them, they would make a great clean up crew in my roach cages. Here are some pics!

Anyways, hope you guys enjoyed the post, and I'll see you later! :)
