  1. Breeding project is my ultimate goal with these.
  2. Hello, long time no see everyone. I've kind of left the Beetle hobby and only have my dubias and some Eupolyphaga sinensis in terms of roaches but have been enjoying my aquatic inverts and a lovely pair of vinegaroons. I have looked into keeping some freshwater crabs, specifically vampire crabs and while I have found some great sources of info online I have a few specific questions. The biggest of which would be: is it a requirement for all or most species of to be kept in a paludarium type setup? Meaning would they require a substantial amount source of freshwater? Or could I get away with a simple water dish for them to climb in and out of? I'm planning on getting Orin's book on the matter of Vampire Crabs and I'm hoping it will be much more comprehensive than what I can find online.
  3. Excited to see some adults! Those look great!
  4. Welcome back! Glad to hear your stress/anxiety is doing better. I struggle a lot with depression and anxiety, I can sort of understand where you’re coming from. If it does start to get bad again just take a step back and try again when/if you’re ready. So glad to hear you’re back in the hobby!
  5. I'm so sorry to hear this. RIP Daniel
  6. Alright, thanks redmont! Right now I picked out 11 of the biggest ones (there were literally hundreds...) and I set them up with crushed oak leaves and compost with a little top soil.
  7. All the grubs I found were in the soil.
  8. Okay that helps a bit. I have a few pictures of some grubs that were underneath my rabbit hutch and after comparing them to other pictures and considering what species live/breed in my area I am still clueless. I did notice that a few adult cotinis beetles were found in the same exact area as these grubs... don't know if means anything though.
  9. Hey everyone, I've been looking for ways to identify 'good' from 'bad' grubs. What I mean is: how the heck can I identify commonly kept pet species from say just your run of the mill lawn grub? I've found a couple pretty big (nowhere near as big as say a dynastes tityus larva...) grubs and a few extremely small ones but I have no idea where to identify some of them... I've tried bugguide and that wasn't very helpful. If I could figure out how to post pictures I might upload some if anyone can help identify them. thanks! -Joshua
  10. Btw Alex, I love your blog it's very fun and informative. Great work mate!
  11. Yes I believe @Hisserdude mentioned this on a previous post if I am correct. It's totally fine with me. For now I am locked out of my account on the Beetle forum (typed in my password incorrectly too many times lol.) Someone asked me if I ever found any Lucanus elaphus to send them a message. Literally five minutes later I found a dead female L. Elaphus in my backyard covered in ants... bummer... on the bright side though, I checked iNaturalist for stag beetles and found a nearby town has several observations on giant stag beetles, I might have to check that place out! Any tips on this species meaning how to find/catch one? Thanks Alex!
  12. LOL! Isn't that what a pet essentially is though, a freeloader? Or are you like the breeders on here meaning you're a roach pimp...
  13. Wow... thanks for all that info man! Hopefully I'll be able to find something now lol. I'll go see what gas stations are closest to forrests/fields in my area. Thanks a ton man!
  14. Wow! Those are so cool! Awesome roach man!
