What you need to know about cellar beetle

Originally living in caves, this apter insect has easily adapted to all dark, humid and quiet places. Feeding from decomposition organic matter, such as rodents, its population generally grows along with rats or mice.

These other names give cold in the back : "Scarabée funèbre", "Scarabée puant", "Presage de mort"...

This beetle has a bad reputation for several reasons. First, he attends the dark and unsafe places and when he is debushes, instead of leaking, he stands arrogantly by lifting his rear train, and if you don’t take care of it, he sends you a nauseabond jet and stained by aerosol. His ecology and his behavior are thus sufficient to his disgrace, his black and dull color only blackens his image a little more.
