    New and worried sulcata parent here

    I buy a tent with a window, but I have also made one. I get it all set up, then I took am exacto knife and cut a half moon shape( mainly because That's the shape of the door anyway and it was just easiest to follow without making it look like a hot mess lol). I left the top uncut so it was...

    Tortilla needs you

    I do inside and out cuz im paranoid about my floors lol. The inside I use a thick clear shower curtain and black gorilla tape. No issues with fumes because all of my stuff is on a therm so it doesn't get hot enough any way. I just safety pin the outside tarp to the 4 outside corners. Sorry, i...

    Dubias

    Do you all have a good recommendation for escape proof bowls for my beardie? As he eats larger dubias they are getting too big and can almost get out and I don't like that lol I was just hoping one of you has tried one you all are really happy with before I go and buy one that may or may not work

    Dubias

    Good to know! I just bought a blue one from target and put the tape up, but clear might be what I eventually switch too when I meet a bigger bin. Which I think I'm getting close to. Mine is in my house though so idk how my family would feel about clear 😂

    Dubias

    Yea, that's why I lined the top with packing tape and I keep the tops of the eggcrate away from the top at all cost. So far so good lol. Famous last words.. .. And I can't blame you one bit! I'd need a torch maybe. I don't mind them in the bin, but not having free reign of my house

    Dubias

    That is a giant roach!!! Pretty though! My son is terrified of all bugs. My brother taught him that I think. My brother is TERRIFIED of moths of all things.... he is 6ft, 300lbs but a little house moth is enough to send him into a panic! 🤣 and don't even mention June bugs. But I don't like those...

    Dubias

    OK good! I have noticed a few freshly molted ones in there so that makes Perfect sense. My colony has taken off so well that I've actually considered moving up to the 40 gallon bin, But I've been holding off since I only have the one reptile im feeding them to. I am so glad that I got into...

    If I'm keeping a bug species not to feed, I'll stick to praying mantis. Can't get over a ghost or an orchid mantis!

    Dubias

    But.... do they fly? That's my deal breaker! That and will they die in my winter if they get out? 😅

    Dubias

    I can't have bugs walking around my house either. I really really hate fungus gnats and have those yellow sticky butterflies in a lot of my plant pots and some hanging at the top of my tortoise enclosure. If I saw a roach walking in my house I would die! My container has packing tape and the top...

    Dubias

    The only reason I could do dubias was that they don't fly lol and I have large tongs. I know they are harmless, but some boundaries need to stay in place lol. I hate German cockroaches. The others I could always watch in a tank or container. Having these dubias though has lessened my hatred...

    Dubias

    You have good weather for dubias so I can totally understand why they don't want them lol. Mine are usually quiet too! I was actually startled and slowly walked up to it thinking something was about to jump out at me 😅 I'm a big chicken lol
