  1. Thanks for this! I recently read about similar (possible the same) trapping methods in Orin's Ultimate Guide. Sounds very similar to a homemade minnow trap.
  2. Thanks, I’ll remember that for future reference.
  3. I must admit I’m a little bummed out that they weren’t stags, but I do love grapevine beetles- I’ve seen only one adult before, it was my first beetle and I mistook it for a female d. Tityus. (They look nothing alike I know lol.) That beetle is what got me interested in beetles to start with. Makes me very happy, thanks!
  4. Hey everyone- I visited a wooded area near my house today and found two larvae of what I think are stags larvae. Ive never kept stags before or their larva. I need some info- what are they (stags or something else?) and what instar are they? I'm guessing it's too hard to identify species from pics and location alone. I live in AR and they were found in a rotting fallen tree that if I had to guess what kind of tree I'd guess oak? (Maybe sweet gum?) How long until pupation? Pics: (sorry for dirty fingernails lol.) https://imgur.com/gallery/4qrD8 Thanks
  5. Man I REALLY wanted some of these, but I pretty much spent my entire "invert budget" for the year lol! I wish you the best of luck!
  6. I wish you the best of luck that he makes it to adulthood! Do keep us updated please!
  7. Wow that was fast! Thanks guys I really appreciate it.
  8. I think I asked this awhile ago on the pet roach forums but I'm still not sure. I am going to try to upload a few pictures on here or a link to the pictures at least. Hopefully someone can help me identify them. My first guess was cotinis nitida but I'm still not sure. I found them underneath some bricks near a rotting tree. Thanks! https://imgur.com/a/uyrDr
  9. Alright, thanks! I guess I'll have to go looking in a more rural area.
  10. Hey everyone! I have some questions so I can prepare early before spring/summer arrive. I live in Arkansas but I am sadly in a urban environment so I'm assuming I won't have much luck with finding much of anything. I recently purchased a copy of The Ultimate Guide and have been reading through the dung beetle chapter, (thank you Orin and to everyone who gave a helping hand with this book!) I am most interested in dung beetles atm, therefore I am going to set most of my efforts to capturing and studying WC specimens of Phanaeus, but any dung beetles will do tbh. I need as much info that
  11. Congrats man! Hope they do well for you and your daughter! I remember raising these as lizard food for my last bearded dragon. I always got so attached to the adults lol!
  12. Welcome to the Forum! I was around 13 when I collected my first pet inverts, I had a HUGE flat millipede I got from my great aunt's house in Georgia. She lived on a mountain that had all kinds of cool critters and inverts! Anyways glad to see a young aspiring entomologist on here!
