    Hello from Houston!

    Trip to Peru

    Tropical beetles are legal in North America when dead, though. Surely the government has researched the microbe contamination issues and declared them not a problem ...?

    UV LED flashlights

    Seems like a good setup; in the right places I have seen giant moths and fancy beetles flying to white and even yellow wall lamps, so a UV should not disappoint

    Jewel beetle (Buprestis rufipes)

    Beetles in the Bush has a buprestid-raising article Unfortunately, I think buprestids are generally short-lived and highly seasonal as adults.

    Revenge shall be ours

    By "last part" , you mean the cascade effects, right? Yes, I know Brave Wilderness. In bug hobby social circles, the fellow is rather... controversial I've watched a few of his vids before. Even though he says things such as "be respectful and they won't bother you" and showed a clip of a tarantula hawk's extreme peacefulness after getting himself stung, his sensationalist dialogue does seem to unintentionally cause the side effect of making invertebrates seem evil.

    I think I visited it a few years ago when it was still running, and the forums had been silent. I guess that people lost interest and the admin shut it down as a result

    C gloriosa emerged

    On his rusty website (Elytra and Antenna) he says that Beyer's scarab "usually becomes an adult in less than 1 year from ova being laid", suggesting that the book instructions worked well for rearing beyeri. http://www.angelfire.com/oh3/elytraandantenna/USIUSInsec

    Hello from so cal

    Welcome! CA is a biodiversity hotspot for darkling beetles. I have seen some very interesting species in the forests and semideserts.

    Pretty sure Orin did. Do you have his Ultimate Guide?

    Thoughts on new layout?

    All my text is black and thus readable though. I suspect it's just a glitch; maybe changing browsers could help...?
