      Same to you! Hope you're keeping well. I imagine it's a tough time to be in the performing arts!

      Sending good vibes!

  3. Wow. I hit 1000 reputation points last night!

  4. I'm so excited! I just got accepted into the dual enrollment program at my local high school! This means that when I start my sophomore year of high school in the fall, I will also be doing work at Delaware County Community College, and I'll graduate with an associate's degree!

  7. I love my parents. I was about to purchase 500 mealworms as feeders for my mantids and lizards, and when I asked my mom for her PayPal password so I could buy them, she looked at my dad and told me to look in the back of the fridge. Apperantly they had been planning to give me 200 mealworms for Christmas, but because I needed them, they gave them to me early. Lol

    A few years ago, I wouldn't have liked finding mealworms in my stocking, but now... lol

  10. I see one tiny black spiny baby. Shouldnt they all drop pretty much at once?

      @Jaywo cool thanks. I took the lone 'scout' to its own cup for feeding. Maybe we'll have a few more drop. I'll look to the second, and any subsequent ooths for more babies though. I just wouldve expected way more on the first day. None yesterday. :)

      Haaaa im so confused now. I dont think our thoughts are synced up. The two ooths you sent are bleph and gongy. The bleph is still cooking. 

      My spiny has produced two oothecae and the first ooth is the one that dropped only one nymph. 

      That was yesterday. Is that all I can expect, or do spinys hatch across days. 

      And yeh, your gongy ooths are "the bomb". Lots of babies. TY.

      I really need more gongy ooths. I'll be fighting off Canadian friends just to keep a half dozen nymphs for myself, to get my culture going.

      Hey @Jaywo your gongy ooth dropped a good 30 nymphs. 

      Your bleph ooth is still cooking. 

      Hopefully poor incubation didn't kill my first spiny ooth. Presence of a nymph indicates mating was successful at least. We'll see. 

      I have another incubating, and spiny girl can drop a few more. 

      I have two idolo ooths, and a unicorn ooth coming. 

      Fun times 😱

      Time to turn off the pool heater. 

      92°F water. 

      No wonder the kids didn't want to get out. 😏

      Bummer. When I was at the pool store, I forgot to buy a bulb for the underwater pool light. 😢

      Going for a dip to rinse the mosquito spray off. Mosquito repellent has become a problem. I used to shower in it before. Now that I'm keeping mantises... I'm afraid. 

      Boys just got out. I'll be shocking the pool later.

      The popas are the ones im worried about. The idolos and blephs are well fed, and dont need much water. I may be okay then?

      Not the way I wanted to spend this weekend. 😔

      Im seething. UPS bunged it up again. Lied to me all day long really. While standing in a UPS store at 630pm, the package officially cleared customs. Lady on the phone told me it's customs fault because they furnished it to customs at Toronto at 8pm last night. Package was picked up in SC at 638pm. Fast plane.

      They actually passed the package to customs at 954am this morning. HOURS after it needed to be cleared to make the day's sort. Why? Maybe because it was in New Brunswick, Canada at 626am. That's Atlantic Canada. Think Maine, but farther.

      So, consensus please: Will i3 idolos and i4 blephs make it until Tuesday afternoon? Monday is Canada Day (like your July the 4th) and everything is closed. I don't hold out hope for my i4 Popa spurca. Daytime highs are in the low 80s.

  22. Wow. rainbowmealworms.net.

    Ordered 1250 BBF spikes. Three of five zippies weren't sealed right. Im down 451 spikes. This is the second time zippies werent sealed. 

    Not impressed when I have to pay FedEx shipping on top of the price for the spikes.

      @MantisGirl13 they credited me 500 spikes. It doesnt cover the extra shipping cost (Incredible. Each additional zippy of 250 spikes adds approx $6USD) but I'll take it.

  23. I was planning to mate my green female ghost this afternoon, but I got back from grocery shopping and she had laid me a nice big infertile ooth.

    So I decided to see if my male would be interested in my big dark female. Sure enough, after three hours of fooling around on her back, Pumpkin the male decided to make the connection!!!!!

    This is the first ghost mating of the season for me, but not the last! I have three other females waiting for their turn.

      Lucky. I have just one each illudens and paradoxa females.

      By old identification standards, I was informed illudens and paradoxa are synonyms. Whatevz. Ill keep them separate. 

      Whole whack of males tho. Two subs that just dont wanna molt too. 🙄
