  4. Wonder if different bats guano(poo) tastes different? Each bat species have different diets. Also you can buy many flavors of bat guano at horticulture supply stores now. They come from different countries each has unique N.P.K levels. Guess someone needs to experiment.

    Well its hard to believe the Ivory bill is extinct. Spend some time up the bayou. Brinkley AR the recent hot spot what I call BFE bum %$#@ Egypt. Lots of swamp not many people big trees. Have a feeling the birds have been rediscovered but the few people who know want to plan ahead. Well to the bigfoot non believers come to NorCal. There is hundreds of miles of wilderness its atleast fun to look.

  16. Good work W/C is very rewarding. With all the importing laws with Fl its defiantly the way to go.
  17. Any ideas? These roaches live under rocks by mountain streams around Trinity county. Unfortunately the specimens died had found 2 but they shriveled during transport was 100+degrees and dry. They needed to be in a cooler which my wonderful dogs decided to break. Going to find more and try again with the correct equipment. They aren't suitable for pictures . Also spent a week blasting lights late deep in Shasta county only one roach, it was a male Parcoblatta. The Parcoblatta out of Shasta have a bright maroon color, almost went in the kill jar it looked like a Longhorn beetle. Working on finding a starter culture of the Parcoblatta a dangerous job usually find more rattlesnakes then roaches. Had been looking for roaches kneeled down to search some decaying wood as I put my hand down sure enough the was a Pacific rattler 3'' from my hand not rattling. Scared the crap outta me but that snake sure did taste good fed 3 people. One last note my W/C Parcoblatta zebra have bred. Very happy to get that culture going!! Happy roaching!! Ian

    Roach stream side Nor Cal.?

    Yes I believe the male was a Parcoblatta americana. Well the beginning part of the post was inquiring about what species other than Parcoblatta are found here in Nor Cal. These stream side roaches were completely different then anything I had ever seen before. Was hoping for a lead. Got a friend searching for more makes things hard with no pics etc. They make their home among rocks along the stream. Good luck with your culture Parcoblatta are some of my favorites colorful and fast. BTW I know its a shot in the dark without a sample specimen.

    Periplaneta tattoo

    Thanks. Yah tatts aren't the best for everyone. Adding many species after this summer the sun really fades tatts really want a Therea and some Eublaberus tatts. Anyway working on covering my body. Wife hates roaches but new tatts aren't an issue lol. Also want some praying mantises and tiger beetles. The best bet start were sun doesn't shine.
