WillyCKH: Wouldn't be surprised if the world ends :P Sept 23, 2017 10:49:24 GMT -5
Samskwatch: The real question is what can you do? Someone press a button then we are all gone. Better live your life and just not care about it. Sept 24, 2017 9:25:09 GMT -5
Ray: Are you sure they are not crane flies? When I think giant mosquitoes I think crane flies :P lol. they are bad for the lawn though. Sept 24, 2017 10:16:14 GMT -5
bonfield: They're not gallinippers, are they? Sept 24, 2017 18:39:32 GMT -5
amanitovirosa: ...they're very large and very slow and clumsy. I catch them at will, they are just basically fodder for spiders, CP's, etc. My Flytraps all have closed traps with very long legs and wings sticking out... Sept 25, 2017 18:59:22 GMT -5
amanitovirosa: ...they just look like giant mosquitoes to me, I will not bother with the pic posting, doesn't work. Maybe on the new forum. Sept 25, 2017 19:00:48 GMT -5
Ray: yup sounds like a crane fly, :D Sept 26, 2017 5:33:13 GMT -5
porcorosso: sounds like crane flies to me too Sept 26, 2017 11:53:07 GMT -5
nelzabe: Giant mosquitoes on stilts = craneflies for sure! They're harmless, but dopey and somewhat annoying :) Sept 26, 2017 12:09:02 GMT -5
amanitovirosa: ...there is a Charlotte's Web type spider living in the Observatorium, he gets fed about 7/8 per day. My plants don't want anymore... Sept 26, 2017 20:20:29 GMT -5
mrmike: Hi...I would like to buy some venus fly traps and live in Thorold. I have a fly problem and thought it might be a possible solution. Are you still selling plants? Please email me if you do as i would like to get a few. Oct 10, 2017 10:57:14 GMT -5
WillyCKH: New forum: Oct 28, 2017 20:59:46 GMT -5
robinb66: Actually those may be gallinappers and there beneficial because they feed on mosquitos excluseively Dec 26, 2017 15:15:39 GMT -5
bonfield: I have to correct you, gallinippers are a very large species of mosquito that prey on warm-blooded creatures and inflict exceptionally painful bites, even outside the hours that you would usually encounter typical varieties. Feb 10, 2018 2:55:45 GMT -5 *
dvg: No gallinippers outside today... Mar 6, 2018 13:02:10 GMT -5
dvg: suspects their oil is a tad too thick to fly. Mar 6, 2018 13:03:00 GMT -5
hellbomb: Hi everyone newbie here. I’m currently building a green house in my back yard dedicated to only carnivorous plants. I live in alaska and our bugs that bite here are very brutal! I was hoping to trade plants for some of my printed and signed artwork. Mar 26, 2018 22:50:27 GMT -5
hellbomb: Let me know what you think. I still have to figure the cost of things but I thought this would be a fun thing to do. I’m currently working on carnivorous art now and will share when I can:) Mar 26, 2018 22:52:21 GMT -5
