Well, the bathroom is finally done, its been two weeks since the guy was supposed to finish it. The landlord ended up coming over to finish it of all things.

Ok, the point to my story is that the landlord decided to use the cover off of a bin I keep in the kitchen (for lack of better places really). All well and good. Except that bin was full of crickets! Now they are all over the place! Bah.

I called him, he didn't realize that they were in there, he thought it was a recycling bin because of the egg carton. Go figure. They didn't all get out, thank goodness, but enough to be annoying. Some people just aren't the most intelligent things on this earth.

That's my story.

heh

I had a full 1000 box spill over in My bed room once, but they were 1/2 inch so they didn't chirp.

My wife was yelling at me for waisting money cuz I busted out the raid and went to town!!!

At least it wasn't a roach bin! We always have at least a few crickets running around the apartment, but I think my roommate would move out instantly if any roaches escaped. lol

I was thinking as I read that, you should be happy your landlord didn't NOTICE the crickets when he lifted it up. Most landlords I thought don't like things like that. I couldn't imagine keeping roaches there.

I have never met the new manager at my apartments, so I'm not too concerned about her finding the roaches. I think she'd be too distracted by the dozens of frogs and reptiles to notice anyhow. I'm not the only one in this apartment complex that has a bunch of reptiles though, so it's not an issue.

Well that's cool you at least have people in the area with animals. I find it SOO hard to find people that have the same passion for animals as me. I have yet to meet more than a couple.

I live in Portland, Oregon. There seems to be a huge number of people with exotic pets and reptiles in this city. I wouldn't say that they're all passionate about it, but I'd say you're just as likely to find people with reptiles as any other small animal. I'd really like to find someone close to my age that loves reptiles as much as I do. My neighbor has a bunch of chameleons and some frogs, but she's in her 50's. Fun to talk to on occasion, but not much in common.

OK, I've got a feeder story too.

The first time I ordered houseflies for my chameleon the package was delayed in the mail. I ordered pupae as they ship the best and you can control how many emerge at a time with temperature. The weather was warm, so by the time the box arrived at my tiny local post office ALL 500 of those flies had emerged into adults. The box was literally vibrating like a cellplone. The postmaster gave me a crabby look when I picked it up.

I tried to open the package inside a Reptarium to confine the flies. Didn't work very well and I was swatting those expensive flies all over the house for weeks. Well, I suppose the cham got some of them!
