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.
Ok, so I followed the advice Malicious gave on previous post (see below) and have been successful at keeping silkworms alive. HOORAY!!! I have tried other strategies in the past to no avail. Thank you very much, Malicious.
My question now is this: In light of the coming hot weather, I would...
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?
Has anyone had any correspondence with Jason at Herpmist in the past three weeks? I have emailed him twice but have gotten no reply. I hope that he is ok.
If anyone on this board can help, it would be appreciated. I want to heat the water that my misting system uses. I think that it would be...
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 am fond of the quality of supers (and crickets) that I get from Mike at http://www.premiumcrickets.com/. I buy supers 500 at a time and my chams love them. Mike offers very good service to customers. Please check him out.
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...
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!
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.
I just tried to order more Cricket Gutload from Cricketfood.com but cannot get it to load. Does anyone know if this site is still in operation? I hope so--my crickets really like their Premium Blend Advanced Gutload.
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.
