Hello from Central Illinois


Recommended Posts

I meant to do this a long time ago and totally forgot.

 I got started in late 2018 raising Dubia roaches for my son's lizard. I'd had reptiles, chelonians and such in the past but never inverts. 

The roaches turned out to be more interesting than reptiles to me, and my son started collecting bugs and getting interested in entomology.

The combination of a move to a larger house with dedicated office/invert space and time at home due to the pandemic really accelerated my acquisition of new species. Tracking them down is really fun, but I enjoy raising them as well. It's quite relaxing to take care of them and see their progress.  It's also a great way to connect with my son (6) and two daughters (3 and 2). 

This community has been a great resource for me and I try to pay it forward whenever I can.
