Lost one of the stalli nymphs, along with one bleph nymph from the other day, so I still have my six and six.
Less fortunately, my panther female mismolted to adult.
What can ye do? 😖
hysteresis started following First ever breeding - Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii - Spiny Flower
hysteresis commented on Granny's Mantis Mayhem's blog entry in Granny's Mantis Breeding Successes and FailsI haven't started yet. If I get one of my two male orchids to connect, I have reached my goal 100 percent. The mega is tricky with one male. He looks bigger than her, so there's something. 👍 Best of luck tomorrow. 😊
I hate melanogaster even more than I hate hydei.
That is all.
My new guys out for delivery. 😍😍
BB flies are starting to pop. Took 10 days. 70F until I started warming them up a bit Saturday evening.
Maybe I ought to carefully warm them right through. Afraid of dessication though.
I am very hopeful that this second round of BBF spikes from rainbowmealworms.net is very productive. I already have several dozen nice pupae I've separated out for the first zip bag. The rest from that bag I've left to pupate in a cup. The other three bags (all still wriggly spikes) are in cups, in the fly fridge.
I want an abundance of flies for my crew. ❤️
To be fair, I was on a learning curve. I figure I cooked and dried the first pack with too much heat.
Also, not enough humidity in here in the winter. I can fix that moving forward next winter. (let's not talk about next winter yet)
Also, I should have removed the spikes from little zips as soon as I got them last time. I did this time.
The last bags of spikes were flaky as they were 5-6 weeks old by then.
With my gained experience, I expect them to eclose by Friday give or take.
Brutal day. The highs and lows of this hobby are straining me.
Yes, all the birds are fine.
Acquisition is tough when you're in The North.
There was this one time that a package sat for four days at an 'origin' UPS location... 🙄
WINTERFELL! THE NORTH!
My love is at work today.
So, the Egg Hunt and getting the bird on falls squarely to me.
Kids looked shell-shocked getting up this morning. Well, Cameron did. LoL.
But here they are after completing the egg hunt. It's been rainy (ground is wet and squishy) so the hunt was inside.
Happy Easter Moms and Dads! Happy Easter all!
