    Where there's trees and flowers and chirping birds...
  1. Oooh, debatable, sir. Jitterbug is a pretty spiffy looking Male if I do say so myself. ^_~ Even if he IS supposedly just a pest. (Put it this way--I have a plentiful supply of potential pets in the kitchen during the rainy season every year...and every tropical storm that comes by yeilds a sudden swell of adventuresome critters...) It's like a dream come true... Assuming you like American Cockroaches. (I think I've mentioned before that this is usually a less common thing for girls without any lizards/snakes to feed them to, or for girls in general as far as I've noticed. ) Oh the brig
  2. YES! JUST AS PLANNED! *airpunch* Someone knows the song... But of course, living in Florida means you basically have only two seasons:rainy and dry...so there really ARE trees and flowers and chirping birds all the time. (Slight truth there! But sadly, I can't yet twiddle my toes...) Aw, hey! The only problem with the german cockroaches is that they're a bugger (Oh the puns!) to get rid of. ("Might as well blow up the building" kind of thing in some cases...) I mean, they're the LITTLE ones. I always laugh when people from further north complain about their eensy cockroaches and how much the
  3. Understood, but I checked all my roaches pretty carefully before deciding who went in what cage. I originally had two males and so had two cages. Until recently, I assumed I had ONE male... And it's usually pretty easy to tell which one's which in this species at least...so...I still don't know what happened... I can't explain it, but the cockroach in question didn't have ANY of the features of a male, and now, suddenly "she" does. ...I mean...Unless one of my many siblings swapped out my roaches (Which I don't find that likely) it doesn't make sense to me that this should happen either, b
  4. Malaysia! My goodness, that's far! (And you're islamic? "Salaam?") I can't wait to see what YOUR roaches look like. Technically Florida, where I am, in the United States, is supposedly the place to be for "tropical" bugs... I'm curious...how big are the roaches over there?
  5. Hullo. I am one of those crazy people who live in Florida, where roaches are the state bird, and the environment can only be described as "palm tree rich." So a while back, I started catching teh "pests" in the house and raising them as pets. At the moment, this legacy has passed on to my five little friends, Kafka, Jitterbug, Ravenous, Mehitabel, and Misa-Misa. And they live on in a predator-free environment as my strange pets. (Strange? Yes. It's typically rather strange when a girl decides out of the blue to keep roaches. Especially when she works for an exterminator... But of course, l
  6. Actually, my cockroaches ate Cilantro. (Mine are American cockroaches though, so I can't speak for the "fancy breeds") And my cockroaches also eat carrots, but only when I don't give them apples or such. I've avoided citrus, because though they love it, it goes moldy like nobody's business. My cockroaches have different favorite foods, too. One of them will eat the icing off of kitkat wafers... I also have seen them eat paper and soap. In fact, they all prefer brown paper over the nasty white stuff. More or less, you just triple wash your veggies before popping them in, just in case.
  7. Right...So... I recently went off on a rambling and lovely search of the internet to find out life's answers to pressing questions. In my case, this included the qeustion of what just happened to my cockroach. I am one of life's happy weirdoes in that instead of stomping on household pests--which down where I live, include American Cockroaches about the size of my thumb--I catch them and keep them in cages as inspiration to a range of bizzare art projects. So far, I've had this habit for almost a year and a half...in fact, my first little darling, a female cockroach by the name of Kafka ha
