Dermestid Beetle Experiment

Jordan G, Marcella L, Tony N, Sam V

Our students wanted to find out if changing the temperature in a dermestid beetles tank would affect how fast they could eat a mouse. They created a controlled experiment using three beetle cultures, three dead mice, and three different temperatures, hot, room temperature and cold.
