Handmade premium substrate!
This substrate is made to rear all kinds of beetle larvae.
It contains good additives for promoting extra growth.
You may also use this to keep adult beetles and a bedding required for reproduction of female adult beetles.
If you don't plan on using newly purchased substrate within couple weeks, you must store them in a right ways:
Method 1: Freeze the substrate, and just unfreeze it a day before replacing old substrate. Make sure the substrate’s temperature is similar to your room temperature.
Method 2: Take substrate out of the bag, and pour it into a container that has small holes (large holes can attract pest infestation). Stir and mix it once in a while to aerate it to prevent molds.
Method 3: Take the substrate out to open air. Let it completely dry out, so pests and other organisms will leave the substrate. When ready to use, simply add water to the dried out substrate to be used again for your larvae.
