    I bred a brood of locusts about 3 months ago and have had a few here and there die but this week two of my males have died in a strange way I have never seen before. Their two sets of front legs curl up and they lie on their sides but their back legs ,maxilla and antennae twitch for hours...

So looking for ideas on who to use for good quality livefood at fair price. looking at about 40 boxes plus...

    So today I got my first bearded dragon, Odin, he's a baby and we bought him from a specialised store, he has a bit of a bent tail, but according to the store owner that's just a birth defect, and it doesn't seem to bother him. I've had no real problems (Other than him jumping on the ceramic heat...

    I know one of the most common questions seems to be around feeding dragons. So I apologise for posting another one. I have read so many different things, but I've not seen anything yet that gives an idea on specific quantities to expect them to eat. I now know variety is very important with...

    Hello my fellow RFUKers, long time no see. Not been focussed on reptiles past few years due to other life commitments but now I have been given a bearded dragon which I was hoping to feed on roaches but he's a fussy bugger and only wants locusts. Not an issue as I am a keen insect breeder but...

    hi now i'm trying to breed locust on a larger scale and have built a 10x12ft shed with 4ft vivs inside. Now I was using heat lamps but found it more expensive then actually heating the room. So now I heat the room with built in fans in the vivs to move the are about. The vivs are 24 degrees at...

    Hi, I've just started breeding locusts and i've noticed that once i put the lids on the tubs after eggs being laid, the top of the substrate seems to develop a white fluffy substance that im thinking is mould? Is this the case? Whats going on there? Will this mould prevent hatching or kill the...

    Most care sheets I've read say they need heat lamps and massive enclosures but don't want to dedicate that much to breeding live food as it'll only be a slight convenience to me to breed my own with out all the heat and stuff. So do they need heat lamps or is room temperature okay? bearing in...

    Hi all, I've read with interest the previous forum posts regarding breeding locusts and wanted to share with you all my findings. To start with, I should say thanks for all those who posted before regarding this topic as it set me on the right path to breed them. My son is in University studying...

    You guys are probably sick of answering questions like this but i need some pointers please! :D I'm going to be getting my first beardie soon, an adult male. I understand his diet should be 80% veg and 20% bugs (approx). The veg seems easy enough but i have a couple quick bug related questions...

    I opened my livefood delivery today and from time to time I get a couple of slightly bigger locusts than the size I ordered, no big deal because up until this moment they were always a good size for my adult beardie. I opened a bag of 50 small locusts for the little dragon I have and a...

    Hi, I've recently been put in charge of Jazz my sisters beardie whilst her house is renovated. He's a sweet little thing and I can care for him but how do I get the locusts from their silly little plastic tub into the big plastic she has for them easily? I've seen her just grab them and put...

    Hi I am thinking of using ecoearth for my locust colony and wondered if I put springtails in there to help keep it clean would they consume the locust eggs?

    Hi All, I've had a search on the forums and can't find the info that I'm after. I have two juvenile leos so feel them small/medium locusts. In terms of keeping I've bought a 24L plastic box from tesco (the faunariums are too expensive IMO) If i were to drill holes for ventilation and attach...

    Hi all, Quick question for you. Have any of you ever noticed if a locust (5th size) has ever slightly cut the inside of your bearded dragon's mouth (or any other reptile for that matter)? I was feeding my two year old male yesterday and suddenly spotted when he was chewing that there was some...
