The Dermestes maculatus (hide beetles) were picked with a soft (moist) camel hair brush and kept in a plastic jar (Container) along with little fish meal and covered with fine netting and placed in a waterbath for preservation by disallowing invasion of thief ants on the fish meal.
In each of the set up replicates, twenty (20) Dermestes maculatus and thirty (30) grams of Oryctes boas were introduced into each container, respectively.

The rest of the coleopterous larval exuviae are from Dermestes maculatus De Geer, indicating that this succession proceeded to an advanced decay stage, close to skeletonization and/or mummification, where only bony tissue, dried skin and hair are preserved.

produce holes up to 6 mm in diameter (Jodry & Stanford 1992); according to Kitching (1980), carrion beetles can bore even larger holes, up to 8-10 mm (d'Errico & Villa 1997).
