Looking for beetle farm

Post by redneck75 » Wed Jul 27, 2011 11:48 am

Anybody got a lead on a beetle farm for cleaning skulls? I've got a couple smaller hog skulls that I need to do for the boys...it was their first pigs so they want the skulls cleaned up and saved. I'm in Jacksonville.

Dump the skulls in a bucket of water for about two weeks. It does the same thing beetles will do. The skulls still need to be degreased whether you macerate or let dermestids do it
