    I was reading on a dutch forum about this beetle that is apparently very new in the hobby for food, so i was just wondering if anyone has tried it before, and what the results were like.

    I do believe this is the place hes refering to. http://springhalen.dk/index_english.htm
    Ive gotten a few things from them and lost a lot of bugs due to shipping time frame. But all the turkish gliders that everyone has came from these guys.

    Very late reply, just the larva can be used, and they can be very small.
