The Beetlejuice Cafe has officially been opened!
Dermestid beetles are used by universities and museums to prepare skulls and other bones for display. Boiling of skulls is messy, smelly and can damage delicate bone structures such as nasal membranes, loosen suture lines, as well as impart an oily film to the bone. Boiling also shrinks skulls! Preparation with flesh eating beetles avoids these pitfalls. These beetles are easy to maintain and multiply, by following simple procedures. This is how the Hoof Geeks get all their awesome specimens that aid in the teaching of equine soundness.
We will also process other skulls for people - deer, bear, wolf, coyote, fox, etc. Anything you bring can be put into the Beetlejuice cafe.
We also have beetles for sale for those who want to start their own maceration operation either for business or hobby purposes.
