Post subject:  Drugstore beetles Infesting Tilapia Fish pellets

I have been substituting my tilapia fish feed with some Fish pellets. However there has been a recent Drug store beetle infestation in the Fish Pellets. Is Drug Store Beetle, its larvae safe for tilapia's consumption ?.

i assume beetles and insects are also source of protein for tilapia. I am more worried about their urine, feces, and larvae.

I would go get new, fresh pellets just to be safe, but I couldn't find any info on toxins in the beetles, so It's your choice I guess. Maybe try feeding only one fish and see how the fish reacts.

I'm not an expert so don't blame me if a fish dies... :shifty:

yea it will all be fine.

just watch out for webbing (if they make it), the fish wont like it so much, but probably wont hurt them in small amounts.
