SOME NOTES ON COLEOPTERA FOR BEGINNERS

C. G. Siewers
1880 Canadian Entomologist  
In answer to a query in the March Entomologist as to the rearing of larvæ of wood-boring beetles, I would say that it is very difficult to do after they have been removed from their burrows. Try damp sawdust of the same wood. The better plan where infested timber is found, is to saw it into short lengths, pack in tight box and cover with a wet cloth. Many kinds cannot bore in dry wood.
