  1. Congratulations, hope more come your way
  2. Salmons, that's a beautiful image of a termite reproductive and MrCrakerpants the link you provided is a good read
  3. Yes, mantises and termites had the same common ancestor, a testimony to insect's biodiversity. Getting out of topic but has anyone seen Netflix new series, Stranger Things. In my opinion I think it's a great show and I can't wait for them to release the new season on 2017
  4. Termites are not aloud in the house as well that's why I keep them In the garage, which is separated from the house, and is use as storage. I also keep the rest of my bugs in the garage.
  5. I thought about that too. It's kind of hard, seeing them as cockroaches, almost like they they are on another plain of existence. But if you would like to do honors of moving this post then be my guest.
  6. I have been inactive for a while but I would now like to share what I'm working on now. It's there's a termite nuptial flight going on her in Los Angeles and I'm lucky enough to find 2 pair of Incisitermes minor. Now I have them set up in a test tube with a piece of a paper bag. Now it was all experimental, I didn't think they would eat the paper but they did and they seem to be starting to stabling them selves. Let me know what you all think.
  7. I also just have gotten some of these. I am using orchid bark and a bit of long fiber sphagnum moss and other organic material. They seem to like it so far. Also cork bark is recommend as a hide, sence they also like to eat it. Also high ventalotion is required for these species. They are found in birds nests wich could explain there need for Losse substrate and high ventalation good luck.
  8. Take a look at formiculture.com, this site is full of information about collecting and keeping ants.
  9. They are not dead yet, so yes I am having luck with these guys. Thank you for asking They have gained their fiery insignias and I think they have gotten a bit bigger. I have also added some springtails to the inclosure to prevent any fungal growth, also they will be used as feeders for my mantis nymphs.
  10. Welcome, I am sure that the Periplaneta fuliginosa you have there won't be your only roach species you will keep. If you wan't more Periplaneta fuliginosa then go to roachcrossing.com, they go for around $10 far a starter colony with the additional shipping. While your there, you can browse at the vast selection of roaches.
  11. Finally a adult domino, the mere sight of it makes me smile
  12. Thank you
  13. I checked up on my enclosures and I saw this. It just my warty glow spots roaches chilling in the corner. These guys sure do like being together.
