YAY! With spring just around the corner, that means the bugs will be back. It is so lonely outside at night in the winter with no crickets to keep me company. I just go back inside to watch my roaches.
I really love bugs and spiders. Last year on one day, I found about fifteen different species of spider around the house, including two different Garden Spider Species. It was so cool.
I'm really starting to get into this whole roach keeping thing. I have four lovely Tiger Hisser Roaches that I believe are adults now, and hopefully by the end of this week or early next week, I will be getting a few more Tiger Hisser Nymphs, as well as some common Hisser Nymphs. I am so excited! I've had the common hissers' enclosure set up for the last week.
I am actually thinking about getting some Mantis egg cases to release around the farm(and maybe to keep a few inside) but I am not sure about that. I don't know if I really want to add crickets to my growing collection to feed them. I am hoping that if I get a few egg cases put around the farm(each egg case holds between 100-400 mantises) I'll see them more. I usually only see them when the moths are around the porch light are out in force.
Does anyone else here actually like bugs? I am tempted to post pictures, but I am not sure of the "Ick" factor that you all might have.
A lot of people I know don't believe me that I have arachnaphobia and will like chase me with a spider, or tell me to come look at this, or say im over reacting because of a tiny spider.
I rather run away while I can still breathe than risk a panic attack. Those are not fun, not fun at all
I like some bugs, the benificial ones like mantises and garden spiders. We get these really big black and yellow garden spiders, I like to catch grasshoppers and throw them in their webs. We also get several poisonous types too which I don't care for. I absolutly hate june bugs or any other bug that has sticky sort of legs. The roaches definitely have the "ack" factor to them too.
