Sophie posted a topic in Introduce YourselfHello, My name is Sophie. I should start out by saying that I am very new to the awesomeness of insects! Despite this, I really enjoy learning about their behavior and would like to know more. Recently, I started collecting Phyllotreta cruciferae (crucifer flea beetle) as part of my Master's project. I have heard that these guys can be tricky to care for. I would love to get a handle on how to house them properly and potentially keep a colony. I thought this would be a great place to find out more about beetle care, post some progress, and generally see what other enthusiasts are doing. Thanks for letting me join the forum! Here are some beetles I collected recently. Photoshoot with a beetle I caught.
Hello! I'm so excited to be here! I'm Esabelle Ryngin (Esa for short), a cartoonist/illustrator pursuing the dream of entomology outreach illustration! I've loved insects (particularly beetles) for almost as long as I've been drawing, and until recently, I had a pet Dynastes tityus named Bae. Since she's passed on, though, I'm looking for more friends to occupy the lavish enclosure I'd made for her (planning/hoping to obtain some males to have bred her with, but that fell through). My bug buddies on tumblr showed me this forum! I hope to make lots of friends here talking about my favorite order of insects!
