  1. Off topic, I see you read books in your sig. ever try Brandon Sanderson books?
  2. Oh, btw, my peppereds seem way calmer now when I handle them since I cleaned out the springtails. Some of those died, don't know if it was springtail related.
  3. Yes, more than 1000 in every enclosure
  4. They only roaches that I know that were not affected for sure were glowspots and extinct in the wild, because i have a starter supply of those. Both are at least a year old, the glowspots still immature.
  5. I ordered some pink springtails about a year ago. Don't know the species. In several enclosures, I had various cockroach species affected. The springtail populations grew out of control. I had thousands in each enclosure. I think a higher humidity in the enclosures excaserbated the overcrowding problem. Even larger roaches such as adult longhorn Hissers were affected and several died.
  6. I recently ran into problems with overcrowding of springtails. They ate many of my roaches legs off. I have since separated all the roaches in all my enclosures from the springtails. I noticed this after several roaches perished.
  7. There are the 2 species I see outside the front of the Aulani Resort. The first species is the smaller one, and there are literally hundreds you can see along the sidewalk on leaves. They seem to eat decaying leaves. The second species are bigger, and resemble American cockroaches, although not the variety that exists around my house in Louisiana. http://s64.photobuck...ary/Hawaii Bugs
  8. I am vacationing at the Aulani resort in Hawaii and noticed some roaches on light poles at night outside the resort. Can I legally catch these and check them with my baggage on the way home? I may get some pictures if I get a chance.
  9. Thinking about getting some of these to put in with some millipedes. Worried about them disturbing molting pedes. How far do they burrow under the substrate?
  10. I caught 2 of those Ischnoptera deropeltiformis pictured above and put them in my communal tank. Those guys are fun to watch run. They drift like a race car lol.
  11. Found these guys today while looking for millipedes. More pics in the Album
  12. I guess it was about an inch long.
  13. I have a sub-adult that hisses. Not loudly though. Adults hiss pretty loud. You can hear them across a room without trying.
  14. Ok, I was going to wash them off but I figured I'd ask you guys first. I'll let him go with the mites intact. Thanks
  15. Is this beetle nymphs on its underside or a parasite? It is alive as of right now. Found it on my back porch. See full album here http://s64.photobuck.../library/Beetle
  16. Why can't I edit my post? Anyways, I was going to add that heating to 200 degrees won't get rid of pesticides, just pests. The vinegar bath and fresh water rinse looks promising to remove pesticides.
  17. I would put leaves, sticks, or whatever in the oven at 200 degrees for 30 minutes. I've done that before with no problems. Just make sure you have it in or on a metal container. Anything touching the oven elements can catch fire. Of course you would keep an eye on things and always have a fire extinguisher near by any time you use an oven or stove top.
  18. That red backdrop is actually an orange Home Depot 5 gallon bucket. That dude was fast, so I scooped the surrounding leaves and sticks and threw them in the bucket. I let him go. Too fast to try to keep him lol.
  19. Here is the album. Lizards, spiders, isopods, etc http://s64.photobucket.com/user/7tisix/library/Bugs%20in%20Louisiana%202-12-16
