This listing is for 1 Litre of Flake Soil (loose volume), which can be used to raise larvae into adult beetles. Shipping costs are INCLUDED in the price.

"Flake Soil" is the term for beetle substrate for beetle grubs that is being used in Japan to breed large adults for the past 20 years but is now starting to be developed in Europe as well by breeders. This high quality substrate is suitable for feeding grubs, and can also be used as breeding substrate for egg laying of rhino beetles, stag beetles and flower beetles if decomposed further.

Flake Soil is rich in nutrients and microorganisms that break down plant fibres, so it can also be used as a general substrate for animals that require a forest floor bedding.

Flake Soil is superior to regular beetle substrate that can normally be found for sale online, which is just a low-nutrient mixture of rotting wood and leaf litter collected from forests. My Flake Soil is made from sterilised oak sawdust that has been artificially fermented with growth additives such as wheat bran, soy protein, trehalose, chitosan and larval gut bacteria. This is fermented at high temperatures for 2 months with manual mixing until the colour of the wood darkens, when it becomes ready to use.

This Flake Soil base is PURE oak sawdust, and does NOT contain toxic coco peat/coco husk which possesses no nutritional value for beetle larvae and cases an imbalance in the microbial content for the larvae due to the high salt and mineral content.
