    let's start a thread of mundane occurrences!

    Thanks. If I find my existing tools to be unsuitable, I'll send the heat tape your way.

    let's start a thread of mundane occurrences!

    Heating supplies arrived. Now I have to wire things up. I didn’t buy crimpers. I’m planning on improvising with pliers or a vise.

    Would your peer do the same for you? 😁 Just a thought.

    Hello from Ohio

    The Columbus one is tomorrow, but I have to work. :(

    Rainbow mealworms

    I had mentioned my failed Shelfordella lateralis colony on another thread. I decided to give them another try with stock from Rainbow Mealworms. They were super pleasant during the whole ordering/shipping process. The roaches arrived happy and healthy, and Rainbow Mealworms included two extra...

    My dubia eat better than I do. :)

    let's start a thread of mundane occurrences!

    I cut a square hole in the lid of the new enclosure, and plugged some high-density foam rubber into the opening. It would make feeding easier, instead of untwisting the top. (Always ruins his web.). I know mantises can’t gnaw through foam, but what about tarantulas?

    let's start a thread of mundane occurrences!

    I just rehoused my Stromatopelma calceatum sling and it was semi-stressful. I used a technique I saw on YouTube, but it operates under the assumption that the tarantula is at the bottom of the initial enclosure. This guy's been hanging out up near the lid pretty much from day one. Eventually...

    let's start a thread of mundane occurrences!

    Thanks. I might take you up on that. I foresee a certain degree of experimentation, however, in order to get the right setup. That's why I'd prefer to be self sufficient. It looks like they're asking for $60 now. I guess I can deal with that...

    let's start a thread of mundane occurrences!

    You know what aggravates me? If you need to connect Flexwatt heat tape to wires, you need a $100 crimping tool. Unless you intend to go into business, how many times in your life will you need that tool? On an unrelated note, some folks swear by organic produce for their roaches. Is that...

    Reminds me of the guy who video taped himself sleeping in the back of his Tesla, while it was in self-driving mode.

    let's start a thread of mundane occurrences!

    Thanks. That was informative. You get your starting batches from Ghann's right? I think part of my problem is starting with Petco/PetSmart stock. My container is about the same size. About 60 quarts? I'm only using one though, with just one size of crickets.

    You mean for the sling? Thanks. I think I can improvise for the time being. He's growing fast and I've seen him take down some fairly large juvenile crickets already. Do you have any Nauphoeta cinerea to spare?

    Good point. YouTube amateurs! :rolleyes:

    let's start a thread of mundane occurrences!

    I've been buying pet shop crickets for my tarantulas, since my roach colonies are not mature yet. I bought 30 adult crickets at Petco, and they seem to die off at the rate of about 3-5 per day. That's a problem for my mature tarantula, but I just had an idea for my spiderling. The little guy...

    Example of a parasite

    That "let's try to save it's life" caption is wishful thinking. I find it hard to believe the a mantis will recover from having all that inside.
