The Unseen Champions of Skull Cleaning: Dermestid Beetles at Skulls Unlimited Cleaning Services

Dermestid beetles have been nature’s little clean-up crew for millions of years, dating back to the Jurassic era​1​. Their historical significance was notably marked when one was found on Egyptian mummies back in 1843​2​. Speaking of mummies, who can forget the menacing swarms of flesh-eating scarabs depicted in the movie The Mummy? Unlike Hollywood’s dramatized version, real Dermestid beetles are not out to chase humans but are focused on the meticulous cleaning of skeletal remains.
