ProRep Beetle Grub is a food that is specially prepared that has white fungus present that all larvae require to survive.
Beetle larvae need very specific food in order to survive. Most important to them is the presence of "white fungus", a special fungus that converts undigestible cellulose and lignin into fungus which the beetle larvae can then eat.
Beetle Grub 1 - This is made up of prepared, mature broad leaf tree leaf litter.
Beetle Grub 2 - This consist of hardwood chips infected with the white fungus and allowed to mature.
The two types are mixed together in different proprtions depending on the species of beetle being reared. We have listed the ratio below.
Stag Beetle - ProRep Beetle Grub (Type 1) and ProRep Beetle Grub (Type 2) in the ratio of 1:2.
Rhino Beetle - ProRep Beetle Grub (Type 1) and ProRep Beetle Grub (Type 2) in the ratio of 2:1.
