I have never watched them because that sale.

I do find them during the winter once we carry in firewood, i let castle thaw out and also they are good to go.


I agree that you can probably find some in the wild. Acquire ahold that a rotting log, or old fire wood, & strip part bark off. Or roll over bigger logs. Check under rocks, too.

Why not view if some location like Carolina organic http://www.carolina.com/ sells them, or if they know of a place that selling them? Might shot Nasco, too, if they don"t market them, they might put friend in the appropriate direction.

Once upon a time, there was a book called "Eat This Bug", little paperback point that gave instructions on exactly how to advanced feeder invertebrates. I witnessed an ad for that in Reptiles many years ago, and also ordered it that way. Well, mine copy has actually gone the means of the dodo and also Carolina parakeet, yet someone the end there might know where to acquire it.

Wow those prices space outragious.

When I had my toads I would go the end at night through a wisk broom and sweep 50-100 into a container in 5 minutes.


Thanks because that the biologicals idea.

I walk a search on that...I discovered this site - Niles organic - that has actually them 50 for $13.50.

Still expensive, but better.

How rapidly execute pill bugs reproduce?

I found about 50 today. This is in no means going to be enough to critical me all winter. I am feeding one hatchling, 2 juvis and also 5 adults.

What perform I feeding the pill bugs?

Thanks,

Shari


It would take years and also a many of an are to devolop and also maintain a sustaining swarm for 8 turtles.

They feed on leaf and vegitable matter.


Years - is not the responce i wanted.

I am finding my "bug bill" is walking up and also up.

I purchase crickets through the 1000"s, earthworms through the pound....

It seems every little thing I very own eats bugs.

For the turtles, do you ever suppliment the diet with something like Nasco tortoise Brittle? It have the right to be soaked until soft and also mixed through fruits and also veggies. Trout chow works, too, if girlfriend can find a distributor. Part "feed and seed" stores have it, however I think it just comes in 50lb bags.

From what I have observed castle only develop young in the springtime and also then you need to wait because that them come grow large enough. Which i think is 2 years since I quiet see tiny ones in the fall.

Maybe under a controled enviroment you can get much more than one hatch a year.


I have not do the efforts Trout chow, and also I don"t recognize where to gain Turtle Brittle. Never ever heard of that.

My juvis will certainly eat a tiny reptomin. The s don"t seem to care for it. The spotteds no eat anything that doesn"t move.

I"ll simply keep purchase bugs.

Thanks for the suggestions,

Shari


LOL, going into the bug business sounds an extremely promising yet my animals would eat up all of my profit!!! (and inventory)

You can acquire Turtle Brittle at

http://www.enasco.com/prod/Home - just go into in "turtle brittle" in the search engine on the site. It"s a pelleted food that sinks, and a many zoos/aquariums use it.

Trout chow you have the right to order native a feed and also seed store, yet I think it only comes in 50lb bags.

I did discover Turtle Brittle. Walk anyone understand the ingredient of this item? What room the ingredients? how much protein and fat, etc.

Interestingly enough, NASCO additionally sells pill bugs - $7.75 because that 25.

Tammy,

I have tried the "bug business". I can"t seem come raise sufficient bugs to feed my very own critters, no method I might ever sell them.

I had actually zero success increasing crickets. I can get lots of eggs, and even part tiny small crickets, but they all died prior to growing.

I have had actually some success v mealworms. Probably because I don"t feeding them out much. Waxworms room too messy - castle fly. Butter worms cannot be reproduced in the states.

My next adventure is raising Lobster Roaches. Anyone ever try this? I"ll let girlfriend know just how it goes.

Kiwigirl,

I perform feed many other bugs. That is just that pill bugs room a great size for small turtles.

Thanks,

Shari
