Skull Cleaning with Dermestid Beetles


Dermestid beetles are also known as hide, carrion or skin beetles. They are bugs generally associated with decomposition, and can be found under dead and decomposing animals. They are usually black or dull colored and hairy, and range from 2mm to 12mm in length. Female Dermestid beetles tend to be bigger than males. Dermestid beetles are often used to clean the flesh off skeletons, especially small animal skeletons with delicate bones. Scientists, museums and universities often grow Dermestid beetles because they do not damage skeletons, unlike harmful chemicals, making them a great alternative for cleaning skulls.
