  1. I had some problem with entomophagous fungi that'd wipe out my cultures so I put gloves on as one of the preventive measure.
  2. Thanks Got some ooths so hopefully I'll see babies soon!
  3. He lives in GA. About 3 hr drive from my house
  4. Definitely! Whenever I lift up an egg flat to check on them they go nuts! One of them even jumped out of the container while I was trying to put back the egg flat to its original place!
  5. Females have pointy tip on the last segment (which often extends past the wings) while the males have round tip. Female : Male :
  6. I'd need at least a pair or two so I could breed them
  7. I'd trade u some of those masked hunters for Eurycotis imporcera
  8. Only about 1.1" in length. This is probably the smallest species of Eurycotis available in the hobby! (unless sp. "Venezuela is smaller)
  9. are going to be so broke before I come back from FL. LOL
  10. Pretty much
  11. Some pics of the nymphs. Turns out this species is easy to raise
  12. Are there any deciduous trees in your area? Nymphs feed on decomposing logs and can often be found cohabiting with bess beetles.
  13. Usually I found them in broken boxes that has degraded a bit, though some species (like Latiblattella rehni) seem to like intact boxes more than soggy degraded boxes. I've not been posting pics much here lately bc whenever I post new pics on my FB the links for my old pics no longer work so I have to update the posts on here to make the pics visible again. P. fuliginosa naturally occurs at my place and occasionally comes in from outdoors. I used to raise large number of beetles so I had a box full of substrates and rotten woods, and those darn Periplanetas were feeding off of those and breeding in there They also got into my Blaberus containers and started breeding. It took about a year to get rid of them from my house but now I have Supella longipalpa breeding here
  14. Another method you can use is setting out several cardboard boxes and checking them every once in a while. I find Parcoblatta this way and when I was in FL I was able to find some interested Ectobiids and even Periplaneta nymphs by checking cardboard boxes laying on the ground.
  15. Both are male P. virginica, with second specimen being a darker morph.
