Default Best place to buy Dermestid beetles

Where is the best place to get Dermestid beetles? Not looking for thousands just a good colony start. I was thinking in the 300 range.

These guys are having a sale in august. Any one bought from them?

These guys have a way better price.

I have bought from both in the past. Ken (bonesandbugs) is a federal game warden out of Alaska. Really nice guy. Not sure what you plan on using them for, but 300 might clean a bird skull. It will take 6-8 months to build up that colony to where it can clean a deer head in a few days.......

If you have any questions feel free to ask. I have had bugs for over 10 years.

Hit me up before you buy them. You will want to have your enclosure ready when they get there. I finally figured out a good one....
