  1. I have various teas that I use and I was wondering if roaches will eat the used tea leaves. Would the used tea leaves be beneficial for them, or might the leaves harm the roaches? I use mint teas, hibiscus teas, green and black teas.
  2. Anyone feed used tea leaves to their isopods? I have non-caffeinated leaves (like mint tea, hibiscus tea, etc.) and caffeinated leaves (like green and black teas) too. Will the used tea leaves be a beneficial food for isopods? Will is somehow be harmful? What are your experience and thoughts?
  3. No, people can't even eat that.

    You bet, I know some techniques.

    Been there, done that. Little things would seem so overwhelming. I know all about it. A therapist can give some real good techniques. But you have to find one you like. If you want to talk more about it, send me a PM.

    I used to suffer from anxiety, was terrible, had it for several years. I say I "used to suffer from" it, but you actually never get rid of it, you just learn to manage it. I've done amazing and I continue to do better. You will too! Just keep getting up if you fall and stay positive!

    What do you use for substrate?

    Straight up coco fiber. Can be moist or dry depending on the species. Maybe some dead leaves for species that need it.

    Hi from Kansas City!

    Welcome to the forum! What beetles do you keep? 😊

    Native Isopods?

    Huh . . . I never knew to search Bug Guide like that. Thanks. That's the other thing, I'm trying to differentiate between native and introduced.

    Native Isopods?

    What isopod species are native to Georgia and Florida?
  12. As part of a varied diet, I've fed Hisser nymphs to: Red Eared Slider Turtles, Northern Red-Bellied Turtles, Mississippi Map Turtles, Leopard Geckos, Centipedes, African Water Scorpions, Tarantulas, Assassins, Large Goldfish and (I think) Hamsters. Maybe a few others over the years, but I don't currently recall. Good Luck! (PS, you could always separate Male and Female Hissers before they have the chance to breed.)

    Isopods drowning

    Make sure the rock is too large for the frog to swallow.

    Onomeris sp.

    Are you keeping and breeding these?
  15. My isopods only get supplemental food once a week. So they aren't getting too much. I will mostly be growing ground orchids and rare house plants in my aquaponic system and will only grow 2 or 3 veggies or herbs for the bugs. Whatever veggies or herbs I grow will be fed to my isopods, roaches and mealworms.
