  1. Yesterday
  2. I know we have discussed this before but I am in search of a light for a light trap that can fit in a suitcase, possibly one that doesn’t require a cord basically runs on batteries.
  3. Last week
  4. And goodness they are tinier than I thought! I got them some where late November. They are so tiny I have to keep them in very small bug containers. I have 2 chrome roaches, 3 domino roaches, 1 death head roach, and 1 halloween hisser. All are small nymphs. The death head and hisser are the largest about 1/2 inch in length, the death head being a few millimeters longer and wider. Chrome roaches seem to be the ones growing the fastest but are still tiny, and the dominos are the smallest(largest one is about the size of an apple seed), and are pretty much around the same size when I got them but
  5. Thanks for the link. I would assume that's the BIC affiliate link, so I'll buy some from there. I also saw that the Insect Brothers have their own clay substrate so I'll likely buy some of that as well, just to have plenty for the future. Thank you
  6. You can buy the clay from here. ttps://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01L11YDQ8/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B01L11YDQ8&linkCode=as2&tag=bugsincyber03-20&linkId=5c6f96133a1928ea6667101b85cb1b58 I've been using that product.
  7. For those that guessed Danaus plexippus (the Monarch Butterfly), you are correct! 👏
  8. Despite my sleepiness after a crazy week, we all had a great time discussing mantids, roaches, ants, Triops, and all manner of other invertebrates (and a few vertebrates...) at this past January meeting. Though I unfortunately did not have the new T-shirt design ready in time, we did take advantage of our ability to share our collections via video: MrGhostMantis showed us his Deroplatys truncata, Hierodula membranacea, and Heterochaeta orientalis, sgvmantid showed us his two Stagmomantis limbata, and I showed some of my roaches and beetles. We also got to meet two new club members, XxSpiderQue
  9. First giveaway started, its free! (meaning you don’t have to pay) I will be doing insect giveaways in a few weeks!
  10. Hey everyone, my name is Edward and I'm am from Newfoundland, Canada. I have always had a passion for beetles, especially Aquatic beetles. I am very excited that I found this place, and even more excited to be able to join. I look forward to reading your posts and learning more. Thanks again. Ed
  11. I’m working with both beyeri and woodii. I’ve run out of the sandy/clay soil mix and my woodii are going to be pupating soon, so I wanted to know if there was an online source. But the beyeri are the ones pupating now, and still in diapause
  12. Yes - Chrysina tend to have a very long larval diapause after making their cells - well over half a year. Following this, the actual pre-pupal and pupal stages aren't particularly long. What species are you working with?
  13. I've been using this product. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01L11YDQ8/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B01L11YDQ8&linkCode=as2&tag=bugsincyber03-20&linkId=5c6f96133a1928ea6667101b85cb1b58
  14. Hey, I would hate to resurrect a dead thread (I don't think we're there quite yet?... It hasn't been ridiculously long), but I have to ask. Where has everyone been getting the clay they use for their successful pupation? Do you guys buy it? Or do you go collect it from somewhere? Also, how long (in your experience) has their diapause taken? I've had some that are in cells they constructed, and they're clearly alive and look like healthy L3 grubs shortly before pupation, but it's been pushing six months now that some of them have been in the pupal cells. Are they gone? Or is this still within t

  17. Animal and Insect discord giveaways and get exclusive content from my YouTube channel. I will probably be giving away a few insects next month but for now I will do a plant giveaway. There is also going to be a sales chat for if your looking for something. You can also give suggestions to make the server better. https://discord.gg/zCTdwhwd
  18. Congrats! Super excited to see the emergence pictures.
  19. ...cool jet black pathogenic roach! I think you may want to edit your post to say "parthenogenetic", instead of "pathogenic", as needless to say, the two words have very different meanings!
