Mothing to Blog about

vivtank_19I'm always amazed at the interesting hobbies folks pursue for pleasure. I finally finished my vivarium but now it's become apparent to me that I need a reliable way to feed my three green tree frogs that won't have me going to Petsmart every few days for crickets. Breeding crickets is just too much of a pain. I know because I tried it. Marcel and I have been catching flies and moths outside by the porch lights at night but unfortunately we have over a dozen leopard geckos that hunt by our bulbs so the pickings are usually pretty slim. So I decided to look into fly traps and moth traps. I originally thought about breeding flies but decided that was too much work too. But if I had a way to set traps and just check them now and then...

Turns out there are some folks who enjoy moths, or Mothing as they call it. There's a whole mess of folks out there who catch, study, photograph and release moths (as well as flies) in their area. They have forums where they post their catches, tips on caring for them and whole threads on trapping. Like I said, I'm always amazed at the vast array of hobbies out there that people devote their time to. I'm sure there are those out there that say that about me and my hobbies. Anyway, that's really all I had to say... :)
