A brief update on the move:
The last few weeks have been a combination of frustrating, rewarding, trying, and life-changing. The new house is almost finished as all the upstairs rooms have been cleaned, painted, and renovated with some minor work still needing to be done. The basement (IE bug room) has come a long way and all that’s needed now is the flooring, which looks like it will be the most challenging part. Thank you all for your seemingly eternal patience; I have begun to answer e-mails once more but time to sit down and do them in chunks is few and far between at present. Wishful thinking suggests that all should return completely to normal by mid-August, at which point I will get back to updating the site regularly. There are many new species and strains of roach, isopod, grasshopper, and other invertebrates to add, along with some spectacular newcomers such as katydids.
Enjoy the summer weather and all the bugs that come with it,
