Rhino/Stag beetle project…

Big beetles are getting more popular in the UK and there are a couple of really good places to get a wide range of species. The problem is it can get really expensive.

The secret to breeding and rearing really big beetles is in the substrate that they eat while developing.

Knowing how to make the best substrate is key. With that in mind I have developed a three year plan that will ensure I have plenty of substrate for each year after.

As a bi-product of using the wood substrates for the beetles it makes for fantastic compost for growing plants and vegetables in the garden.
