  Pests in the house caused by Frog Vivariums

By Kimmich - Rarely I see an article so important that I copy it here. This is one.

There are a few different things people mean when they talk about the inevitability of insects and vivs:

1) Fruit flies will escape your cultures and viv. I don't mind seeing a lone wingless fruitfly crawling across the coffee table from time to time - but for some people that is an unacceptable infestation.

2) Moist vivariums will sustain fungus gnats. Depending on your ambient humidity outside the viv, however, you may never see escapees - or you may find them near your sink drains.

2) Fruit fly cultures will attract mites. These are usually harmless species and even commercially-produced cultures have them. Depending on the observer, a normal population of grain mites in a FF culture may be unnoticed or perceived as a chronic infestation. In both cases the FF cultures are actually fine and the mites are not a problem - but people tend to be bug-phobic especially in their homes.

3) Insect introductions and boom/bust population cycles will happen to all vivs. People tend to overreact to these when they occur even though, in most cases, an infestation will disappear on its own without any intervention.

4) A house without a viv will certainly have fewer insects than a house with a viv, all things being equal. For some people, one escaped fruitfly or isopod is too many - those people, or their housemates, are likely the ones posting about insects problems with having vivs.

5) There will be spiders. Anytime there are flies - there will be spiders

  Monstera Dubia anyone?
Posted by: chano - 11-15-2020, 11:57 PM - Forum: Everything else for Sale or Trade - Replies (4)

Gauging interest.  I run a nursery in Pa, we specialize in rare foliage.  I am just returning to this hobby after quite some time away and I though I would come by and see if there is any interest in the plants we have.  We curnently have roughly 50+varieties of Philodendron, 60+ varieties of Hoya, 19 varieties of Monstera, 40+ varieties of begonia, and various other plants from multiple families. 

Monstera Dubia is one of our more popular and rare of the monstera species but well suited for a viv.  It is a shingler and the juvenile foliage has a silvery color around the veins.

$65.00 plus shipping(shipping is Usps priority starting at $7.95+$5.00 for winter shipping materials aka. Insulated box, heat pack, etc where applicable.)

  Frogs direct - New Website!
Posted by: pet_tree_gnat - 10-26-2020, 10:35 PM - Forum: News from the Den. - No Replies

Hello everybody, if you don't know me I helped Phil get the site back up and running and I love my frogs and plants and vivariums way more than my family likes to admit.  I on the other hand love talking about my frogs and most people think I'm a freak, anybody relate?

I just launched a website, frogsdirect.com, focused on the community, giving you all a place to sell your frogs, plants, supplies, art, apparel, anything you can think of frog related.  You may also sell harmless reptiles but that's not going to be my focus (if you have them and you want a place to sell to the public, go ahead).  I have my own frogs and I have my own plants and I'll get more and try to be more of a direct supplier but if I'm going to do all that work I figured hey why not give it to everybody else too.  There's a few big benefits that I see here.  

People can buy from more than one line or breeding stock to make their own breedable groups. 

Every time you shop a single frog website the stock is typically limited and everything you're looking at is gone.  If we bring everybody together in one place including those stores that already have websites, because you can easily integrate with our website, we can offer the public the largest selection of healthy captive bred frogs  and supplies and the best selection of plants on the internet because we are all plant freaks deep beneath the surface. I've been working day and night to build relationships and wholesale accounts as well tweaking and tuning the website so that it's super easy for everyone to use.  

I expect there to be some hang ups early on but you get your money instantly through PayPal and I help you calculate the shipping, and if you want you can print a shipping label or use your own, like SYR, you can even put in your own API codes and use your own accounts for shipping. Everything is secure I have anti-spam and vendor verification enabled.  Vendor reviews and product reviews, everything under the sun that I could think of, with plenty more features to come in the next few weeks.  This post is barely scratching the surface of the capabilities and possibilities of how great we can make this as a community, together.  I hope you all join me and post what you have and send me any questions or suggestions.

  WANTED: MALE D. leucomelas
Posted by: christina.stefano - 09-10-2020, 12:30 AM - Forum: Dart Frog Classifieds - No Replies

Hello all,



I have a male D. leucomelas whose cage mate died about 2 months ago. He just started calling, so I estimate him to be around 6-8 months old. He has been interacting with me a lot more, and I feel that that has started since the other passed away. I feel bad for him  Sad

I'm specifically looking for a male around the same age as he is, however any adult will do.

Show me what you have! I'm not particular on patterns, but I do want it to be at least a little distinguishable from him. See attached picture.

Thank you in advance!
