  3. 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.
  4. Great post. Hymenoptera rock! Awesome photos.
  5. Howdy you'll its been awhile. Missed talking about roaches. Anyway would like to report that Arenivaga are found in Aguanga Ca. This borders the Anza Borrego Desert locally there are no sand dunes. Males are attracted to uv light learning more will keep everyne informed. Thanks Ian
  6. Whole in abdomen? Maybe Hymenoptera related? Have never experienced this.
  7. 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.
  8. Lol I came home one day with a 14 inch grizzly tatt up my whole side and my wife liked it. Guess I'm lucky well she did marry me with a large turkey vulture tatt. Well I love my tatts more everyday
  9. Imperial Dunes SOCAL is were I want to look. Have found Parcoblatta americana in the Yolla Bolly Wilderness.
  10. Wow nice pics. Thats the place I want to go collecting> Lucky looks great.
  11. Wow would love to live in Hong Kong and collect roaches. Welcome, sure you can find lots of roaches there I'd druel over.
  12. Thats great. Caught one the other day.Happy Fathers Day
  13. Good work W/C is very rewarding. With all the importing laws with Fl its defiantly the way to go.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. Omus are amazing. Have never raised any but can imagine they like it cool. Good luck
  17. 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.
  18. My room is approx 40% humidity with spraying every 3 days and my A. tesselata are molting fine. After moving them to a large screen tank, the roaches prefer to molt climbing the enclosure. There is nothing special here except fresh fruits and veggies.
  19. Will someone let me know how they post nice pics. This has been driving me nuts. Never have been a computer guy. Now I've been learning. The main problem I'm having is the size issue, either to big to post or too small to see. My roaches are incredible would love to share on my favorite site! Thanks again. Ian
