    Why does my Ghost keep doing this?

    Could the mantis be drawn to the bark down there to pattern match?

    Came home to find him wedged in the spot AGAIN. Here is a photo of the setup.

    Why does my Ghost keep doing this?

    He does seem to be literally stuck when I find him like this. There is an opening at the top of the enclosure with mesh. I'll try to trim back the plants a bit to see if that helps, but there are open areas for him to hang in. I'll post a photo of the setup later.

    Why does my Ghost keep doing this?

    My male Phyllocrania paradoxa had his final molt about three weeks ago. He has been doing fine, but he keeps wedging himself in a corner of the planted terrarium I keep him in. I’ve found him stuck like this five or six times now. I help him out each time, but a day or so later I find him wedged...

    Hello from Virginia

    Update! Lief had his successful final molt last night! He came out massive and perfectly formed. It has been very rewarding keeping him these past three months!

    need help finding food for ghost mantis

    My subadult male ghost is taking dubia roaches with great gusto. I cut small ones in half, then stick them on the end of a broom straw.

    need help finding food for ghost mantis

    I’m feeding my L5 ghost house flies I ordered from Josh’s Frogs. I order 25 pupae at a time, then let them eclose into adults. I’ve been keeping the adults in the fridge. I bring them out every once in a while to feed them some bits of fruit. My ghost will also take bits of chopped dubias I...

    Success hand feeding my Ghost

    I had run out of flies for my L5 male ghosty, and he hadn’t eaten for ten days (part of which he was preparing to molt). Thank God I was able to get him to take a dubia roach piece today by trying something new since tweezers were freaking him out. I stuck the piece on the end of a thin sewing...

    Hello all

    You want ladybugs and lacewings if aphid control is what you’re after.

    Your son absolutely does not have to worry. Humans have been home brewing for thousands of years, plus the acetobacter in the kombucha quickly turn alcohol into vinegar in the process. Methanol is really only a danger if you start distilling spirits.

    let's start a thread of mundane occurrences!

    I make black tea with about 10 cups of water, 1.5 cups of sugar, and seven black tea bags. Ferment it at 70+ degrees for about 8-10 days depending on how sweet or acidic you want it. Your son may just need to leave his to ferment more time for the yeast to eat up the sugars.
