    Exotic Black Soldier Fly larvae

    I have fed both black soldier fly larvae and Phoenix worm larvae. Because the black soldier fly larvae get significantly larger than any Phoenix worms I have had, I have been inclined to think that they are not in fact the same. Just my thoughts on the subject.

    I have a female nosey bey approximately 1 year old. Check out the attached picture of her. Do the spots on her abdomen look like something to be concerned about? I haven't experienced this before and wonder what those of you with more experience might suggest. Thank you. Allen

    How to get chams interested in roaches

    Hi, I have been very successful with my roach colony. The only problem I have is not getting my chams interested in the roaches. Any suggestions on how you do it? They tend to want to hide when I release them in the cham cages. How do you handle this issue? Thanks. Allen

    foggers / misting system

    I am setting up my misting system today and wonder if I need to worry about runoff. Do you catch the runoff somehow? Is the mist such that I don't need to worry about having water get all over the floor of the room where they are kept? I have horror images of having to mop up a mess made by all...

    I also am very fond of Premium Crickets. Mike has been excellent to work with and the quantity always exceeds (in my estimation) what was ordered. He has my business! Allen

    Baby food w/additives for cricket gutload

    How about using agar agar and making a gellatin mixture that could be easily managed. Agar agar is a great food substance and I use it regularly, boiled with water then cooled, to feed superworms and mealworms. Works very well. Look up the food value of agar agar--it would be a great supplement...

    Wondering about Sandfire Superfood's "chamleon dust".

    The website states that effective immediately, they will no longer stock the supplements. I wonder what happened? I would be cautious about using the supplements until I learned why they stopped carrying the product. Just my 2 cents worth! Allen

    Dead Cham

    I am sad to hear your news. I know the awful feeling of finding a cham that has died. I can't describe how I felt that day--as if my heart was in my feet. Such an awful feeling. Since then, I head to the vet as soon as there are any indications of a problem that I haven't encountered. Peace be...

    Silkworm Pictures

    In your photos, it looks like you have the silkworm chow directly on the bottom of the plastic tub. Do you recommend this? How do you keep them out of their poop this way? I would like to try it. Allen Newkirk
