    Default 2015 beetle help

    I'm gonna throw it out there and ask if anyone has knowledge of a beetle colony in the anchorage/ valley area. I have called taxidermist already to know success so looking for anyone who may have a hobby colony.

    I'm in southeast but I bought my colony for $30 for 300 beetles off ebay. Great healthy beetles with no mites. Been growing it for a few months now over 1000. Option if you don't find any local.

    Haines. Are you interested in finding a hobby colony to clean a skull or start your own?

    I just posted over in the taxidermy forum but wanted to follow up here. I have a dermestid colony and clean skulls ranging from marten to moose. Prices range $35-$350. I am in Haines and ship priority mail. Obviously antlered skulls don't ship well but I have a quick turn around on cleaning and whitening. Let me know if anyone is interested.
