Mikhail_Karkarov Posted March 10, 2009 Share Posted March 10, 2009 So I got my shipment from James at Blaberus.com. I didn't bother counting but according to the labels he overcounted by about twenty. I set them up in their new home. Pretty inactive guys if you ask me. I expected much more scurrying. They're hanging out in a rubbermaid tub between 80 and 94, eating dog food, shredded carrots, and ground whole oats. They were so cute when I first got them they ran like madmen (or madwomen si'l vous plait) for the food. They're Blaberus Discoidalis and I actually find the little spotted nymphs cute and the adults a little majestic. I have a little apprehension about using them as feeders, but oh well. All that circle of life stuff I suppose. On an unrelated subject, my crickets are at maturity. The horror, the agony of hundreds upon hundreds of full grown crickets. Some people say that crickets only chirp once they reach maturity. I've found this to be untrue. There is usually some amount of chirping before any adults can be visually observed. I suppose it could just be one adult concealed somewhere...anyway the intensity of the chirping has gone from a soothing summer night to The Grasshoppers take manhattan. Anyone seen that flick? Hopefully they produce and even more hopefully I can wean the last of my customers off of crickets and on to the much quieter roaches Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
