Hi, I'm Marilyn. I got a message on Insect Geeks, so here I am. lol. It's great to see a forum that realizes Arizona exists! I just bought a reliable car for once, so if anyone's planning anything in the area, I'm actually capable of making it, yay.

I'm in Yuma, I just broke into the mantis keeping thing when I needed something cheaper than ladybugs to kill my aphids. And here I used to be into budgies, haha. Long story short I wound up with a ton of Chinese mantises outside and 14 in various containers around my room, two cultures of fruit flies and a bucket o' crickets. My mom is horrified. I better not mention I'm toying with the idea of keeping a tarantula.

Oh don't I know it. I've been on hikes all over this desert, catching mostly scorpions by black light because it's damn cool. Heh. My favorite was the dunes west of here on the Mexico side, all kinds of critters out there you wouldn't expect.

Hahaha, they sure are, and we have a ton. I hate the little jerks. I walk outside, especially in the evening, and it's like WHAM-- Lacewings in your nose! They're worst than moths. I used to call them fairy bugs when I was a little kid. lol.

I've actually never seen serradigitus in the wild, but Hadrurus arizonensis, omg. Everywhere. I'm chasing those off my aunt's porch all the time.

Oh yeah. Anywhere around here, especially out at the college. A blacklight and a big pair of tweezers at twilight in the summer--it's amazing. lol. And thank you!

Whoa, sorry, haven't been around. Yes, hooray for Yuma!

I actually haven't seen any dwarf tarantulas, then again, I've never really looked. Heh.
