When people think of insect food, they often fixate on blood feeding insects or carrion feeding insects - insects like mosquitoes and flies. The most common pet insect food is neither of these because these types of insects aren't ideal to keep. In this post we'll look at one species of exotic pet insects - the praying mantis.
this obviously isn't what it looks like, but omg squee!

Endangered! Lightening bugs, as I grew up calling them, are endangered now! Let's stop with the stadium lighting of our houses at night, the chemicals in our yards, cut our grass a bit taller and less often, and allow a little of the natural composting under our trees and shrubs! www.firefly.org Closeup Photo of Firefly
Lampyridae is a family of insects in the beetle order Coleoptera. They are winged beetles, and commonly called fireflies or lightning bugs for their conspicuous crepuscular use of bioluminescence to attract mates or prey. Fireflies produce a "cold light", with no infrared or ultraviolet frequencies. This chemically produced light from the lower abdomen may be yellow, green, or pale-red. About 2,000 species of firefly are found in temperate and tropical environments.
Such an amazing sight on a warm summers night, firefly! #bug #animal

A final word on insect venoms, with a look at the Schmidt Pain Index, developed by Dr. Justin Schmidt to rank the pain of the various insect stings he experienced in his line of work. Whilst obviously pain is subjective, and you'd expect some variation from person to person, it still makes for an interesting graphic! You can see a larger version at the foot of yesterday's post, here: http://wp.me/p4aPLT-rb

Patiently Waiting For the Slow Ones, photo by John Horstman. Shield bugs wait for the last eggs to hatch.
sinobug: Patiently waiting for the slow ones…..waiting…..waiting….. Newly hatched Shield Bug nymphs (Pentatomoidea) gather around their recently vacated eggs as if waiting for their two remaining siblings to emerge. This is a frequently observed phenomenon amongst these Pentatomids. See similar instances HERE and HERE. Pu’er, Yunnan, China See more Chinese true bugs, hoppers and cicadas on my Flickr site HERE…..

Greg Miles - Christmas Beetle - This beetle is is the second largest family of beetles, the Scarabaeidae Family. An interesting feature of these beetles apart from their beautiful colours is their large tarsal claws which are unequal in length and movable enabling them to grasp hold of branches and climb. They are numerous around Christmas time hence their common name.
