    Keeping your greens fresh

    I use mustard greens too. When I get home, I rinse them and pat them dry. Then, I cut the whole lot into edible size. I take a large plastic container with a lid and put a paper towel in the bottom...then I load up the greens..then I top it off with another paper towel and the lid. This stays...

    Fruit flies

    Hammerhead, you always have the coolest contraptions!! ;-) I usually take a glass jar like Hammer, but instead of the cone, I cover the lid with plastic wrap and use vinegar as my bait. So its basically a jar 1/4 filled with white vinegar with a tight cover of plastic wrap over the top. Poke...

    silkworms: reptile safe mulberry

    Ahh gotcha. I am thinking about about breeding silkworms and know about the mulberry leaf or the chow, it was the safe mulberry that confused me. I was going to go to the nursery and buy a mulberry tree and plant it in my yard...cause I thought they were big trees. So I thought maybe some...

    Superworm breeding FAIL =[

    Who mentioned the breeding filter? Are you talking about the video of the guy who uses three drawers and his beetle drawer has a screened bottom?? This is what I am getting ready to try now. Have you tried this way? with any luck? I go in every day and pull out dead supers from my isolation...

    I guess I didn't answer the original question. Yes they can eat it, not sure if they will.

    quick ? about superworm care

    I keep my super worms in a large Tupperware full of oatmeal and put some carrot slices in every few days. I also use one of the lids from the super worm cups and put some water crystals on there. I found this keeps them the happiest. They eat the oatmeal and use the carrot for moisture.

    Hornworms and Green Peppers

    LOL. No I'm kidding. I never tasted it. I am just judging the taste by the odor when your mixing it up. I did read that the US is the only country (save for Canada) that does not eat some sort of bug. I wonder what a hornworm would taste like. hmmm. :study:

    Hornworms and Green Peppers

    As a followup, just so people are aware of what I found out. Green Pepper, Tomatoes, Eggplant and a few other vegetables are members of the nightshade family of plant species. Apparently the leaves are poisonous. I never got a definitive answer as to the carry through of toxicity, but found they...

    Hornworms and Green Peppers

    Today in my garden, I found a Green Pepper plant that was destroyed by a hornworm. (Found the hornworms on the plant eating away at what was left) I know you cant raise hornworms on tomatoe plants and feed them to your dragon because they are toxic, but what about hornworms raised on green...

    Wow, I forgot about Bill!!! Most of my turtle knowledge came from him when I got my first turtle. IMHO, he has the best site out there for box turtle care. Here is the link:

    Found her in my pool filter!

    Hah! That will teach me to check for a second page before I post. I didn't read you had already tried the stores before I posted. Sorry. ;-) I am thinking that will be enough. She has food in there, so she wont starve. You have seen that she will eat, so no problem there. Every other day for...

    Found her in my pool filter!

    Yes, what Tom said. You can get nightcrawlers at any bait store...sometimes you'll find them in 7-11's and stuff like that if your near a lake or river. I live right on the Shenandoah River, so my two little country stores both sell nightcrawlers. (I rinse off the worms, because I read somewhere...

    Dubia in summer?

    BEST answer yet. LOL. Then just hide the males and she'll never be the wiser. ;-)

    Found her in my pool filter!

    I'd say try some strawberry or some banana. (don't use the banana all the time) When I first got mine, that is all she would eat. I had to mix everything with strawberry and banana. That and earthworms. But she was bigger. I know that like beardies, when they are younger they are more...
