  1. Great to have your here, Bandi. I recently collected a species of roach in your area called Blattella vaga. I've got a little starter colony. It's my first time with this species and I'm excited to work with them!
  2. Very cool, Martin. I got some from Orin many, many years ago but it's been nearly as long since I had them. Neat to see somebody mention them again and good luck!
  3. Awesome drawings! (And thanks for reporting the spam post. I deleted it.)
  4. Yeah, supposedly Beetleforum is fixed now too. Just circling back around to all this. Thanks for confirming. I really appreciate that!
  5. You may notice some changes. The forum's software has been updated.
  6. Safety in numbers is definitely a factor down near the border we were spend the majority of the trips. Just uploaded the 8th video from the trip and will be making it visible in the next 24 hours. Here is the latest trip vid.
  7. Instagram is so much fun, Joshua. Love it! Mine is @bugsincyberspace https://www.instagram.com/bugsincyberspace/
  8. Love that you love tenebs as much as I do! I would personally take them over any Chrysina or Dynastes any day!
  9. Steven Barney was out for the conference and I by chance met up with him at this very rest stop! I haven't made a trip up North in many years for D. granti. They are pretty easily sourced but certainly there is nothing compared to encountering one in the wild!
  10. Saw a bunch of those and will be posting some videos of them, no doubt. Eusattus reticulatus were out in force at one spot!
  11. Uploaded a new video too YouTube today. Anybody here gone bugging in Arizona?
  12. Kinda ideas and offers guys, thanks! I'll mull these ideas over a bit. I'm just back from a week collecting in Arizona and had my appendix ripped out of me for the last two nights there after a long 2 hour drive down a very bumpy road to the closest hospital that would perform a surgery. Just kind of catching back up with things. Water heater went out today. Having a year, here.
  13. Sorry for the downtime. The hosting company decides to update their system but didn't tell me that I needed to change the DNS settings to make the forum work. Thanks to those who messaged me about the downtime and welcome back to the forum! Not sure why it affected Beetleforum and Roachforum, but not Mantidforum.
  14. I remember when I took a break between marriages. I still had a couple bugs and I still worked on my insect photography and website, but it really took things down a few notches. I had my bugs in a storage unit for a long time. Lost a lot of things due to lack of time to get over there. Phyllium hausleithneri and P. siccifolium, to name just a few. I remember Orin saying I was the only person that ever came back. I didn't really realize I was ever gone, but I did what I had to do and I got back to what I loved when it was time. Do the same and you can count on the forum to be here when you return. I assume those Simandoa I sent you earlier this year made the cut. Too bad you don't live one state to the left. I'm hiring in September. Take care, man!
  15. Depends a little bit on the species, but mostly cleaning is something that is done for the keeper (by the keeper). The roaches can live for years in tanks that are not cleaned, but their keepers generally like things to look a bit tidier. And so, in a way, only you have the answers to your own questions and they will come through your own experience in keeping roaches.
  16. The roachandferretandsometimescatfoodsforum.com domain name is still available.
  17. Thanks on behalf of all forum members to Redmont for becoming a Forum Supporter!
  18. Thanks to Dactylus for becoming a new Forum Supporter!
  19. Thanks Tleilaxu for becoming a new Forum Supporter!
  20. Thanks! I appreciate that. It was my first one, but I think after a few more times I could probably learn to enjoy it as much as I do emails and such.
  21. They pushed the show back an hour due to Verizon working at the cables so the show goes on at 4:30 PM PST/7:30 PM EST.
  22. How do you guys play Pokemon if you don't have a phone? I just got my Scizor the other day.
  23. Celebrate Earth Day with me on Empire State Reptiles Live (internet radio). I'll be on the show this Saturday at 3:30 PM, PST (6:30 PM, EST). I guess they're going to interview me about my experiences in the pet bug hobby and if people call in we'll take calls.

  24. And thanks to our longterm and spammer "watchdog" member (he's always the first to let us know about spammers), Hisserdude for becoming a Roachforum Supporter!
