Creepy Crawlies in My Closet

Have you ever gone to the pet store bought a couple dozen crickets, only to wake up the next morning to find half dozen or so dead? I have on more than just one occasion, and I, like all of you out there, work hard for my money and hate to see it go to waste. So, with finances being the driving force and my culinary background being the inspiration to finding an economical, low maintenance, and nutritionally sound alternative, Bug-Bites got its start.

Chronicles of a New Breeder: Mating Success and Morph Decisions

Before I get to the exciting news I’ll do a little bookkeeping like I usually do at the beginning of each article. My current money flow is the same which is to be expected. I’m down $618.73 but I haven’t had to buy any feeders at all and have what seems to be a self sufficient mealworm colony.
