I perfer no substrate as then the beetles can't hide away too badly.They still have their egg flats.

I use something called a kritter keeper.I think as my colony grows i'll melt a small hole in the plastic and add a tube into another kritter keeper.

Okay i have a few questions on dermestid beetles:
1-Can they climb glass/hard plastic?
2-How often should you feed them?
3-What can i feed them besides meat?
4-How many beetles are considered a starter colony?[Is there even such thing as a starter colony?]
Thanks in advance.
1-No but in a glass aqurium make sure the silicone around the edges are gone.
2-3-5 times a week and ajust as colony grows
3-Dog/cat food.
4-There is no such thing its just how much you start with your suggestion of 10-20 is a great starter.
Hope this helps.
