Does anyone have access to mite free beetles, or contacts for beetles, to do Texas mount or European mount skulls?  I am interested in starting a colony of beetles.

If you contact this company  http://www.skullsunlimited.com/ they might be able to help.
They did a bear skull for me and it came out far better than boiling.

Not personally but I started having all my animals done this way because I don't have room to display them all.  I have the capes tanned and the skulls "beetled" and put in storage.  I can then later display the animal as a European mount or have it cut and shoulder mounted.
