Re: Less Than 24hrs Before Extermination

I would not recommend ever using sticky traps. If a mouse or other animal gets on it, it's very very terrible. I've seen this first hand with a snake, a mouse, and a bird. None of them made it and it was truly horrid.

Asbolus verrucosus/desert ironclad beetle/blue death feigning beetle

Hello!

I have some blue death feigning beetles that have been living with me for over two years. I want the best care possible for them, but I haven't found any consistent information for their care. Does anyone here have suggestions?

Thanks! :crabbigsmile:

Re: Should I return my crab to the beach where I found him?

Gonna add this as well: Animals that have been kept in captivity should not be released into the wild, in part because they could now harbor unsafe bacteria and diseases. When I worked with reptiles we couldn't do it without a rigorous screening process. Here's a great article on it :crabbigsmile: h...

Re: Moving, need advice

Hello! I moved from AZ to OR to NY with my 7 hermits. They all made it! I put them into an opaque storage bin with a few holes in it for air. For "substrate" I used moist dye free paper towels. Each night I made sure to keep them somewhere warm in the hotel room. Not sure if this is the best way to ...

I have ask the question like this on one of my Forum post, and I have fantastic answers such as using single ingredient pet food, such as purebites.
Sounds awesome, do you have a link to your post handy? :)

Re: Commercial Freeze Dried Foods?

I tried freeze-dried fish before (a type of minnow, I think?), but they wouldn't even touch them! XD

Commercial Freeze Dried Foods?

I have a fairly small living space without consistent access to a fridge, and I'm often snowed in during the winter, so I can't often go out for fresh produce. I'm considering freeze dried foods to offer my hermies. How much calcium should I mix in? What would work for protein? (So far I know my li...

Re: Moving with an 8 hour trip

I just did a drive from Oregon to New York over for days with my little guys. I'll admit, I had no idea what I was doing. I placed the bigger guys in one plastic sweater box (the boxes were roughly 14"x9"x6", I think?), and the smaller guys into another. I added some moist coconut fiber, and added s...

I'll have to give them a try! I've got 6 hungry little buggers that need variety.
