    With My Grandpa :3

    I used to go bug hunting with my grandfather all the time when I was younger. It was so much fun, we always found such awesome bugs. I used to play with them put them in little containers filled with grass and twigs and keep them in my house for a few days because I didn't have...

    Tomboy :)

    I still am a tomboy, but when I was little I had this bizarre obsession with ants, so I used to hunt on my front drive way for ants, the bigger the better, scoop them up and put them in a little plastic container despite the fact they would always crawl out of the holes in the...

    Crickets

     I collected a ton of crickets and put them in separate containers. Me and my dad would go out during the night into my backyard, lift up rocks and catch em. One time, I forced my mother to take me to pet's Mart and get the baby crickets that are fed to lizards and such...

    Preying Mantises

    We (brother and I) used to put them into plastic buckets together and try to make them fight. Or we'd find a dog turd and drop it into the bucket and wait for flies to come so we could watch them get eaten.Also collected jars full of caterpillars, until somebody explained that...

    Roly Polies (pill Bug)

    I absolutely loved the little creatures that would arise from the soil underneath the side walk in the front of my house.  There was one year I think when I was in the fifth grade that when dozens (maybe hundreds) of roly poly bugs came up from one side of the side walk almost...

    My Bug Collection

    I was always a science nerd and a tomboy, loved watching the discovery channel when I had the rare opportunity to watch tv, and would stay outside all day on the weekends, reluctantly going inside when it was dark.  I would spend hours with my butterfly net in the fields around...

    Fasinated

    I was fasinated by them. I loved watching them crawl around in the plastic tub I'd put them in. I'd always free them afterwards though because I had no where to keep them.

    When I was a child, I grew up in the woods.

    ..Hardly a summer day passed that you would not find me bent over or kneeling by a rock, log, or in the middle of the stream, peering underneath to see what small creatures I could find. I touched insects, arachnids, crustaceans and all sorts of things that were clearly not meant...

    Such Fun

    I used to collect all kinds of bugs when I was little and my neighbour used to pay me and some friends to do it! They would give us a few pence to collect ladybugs for them for the garden to eat the greenfly, of course they would fly off anyway but the neighbour just wanted to...

    Fun Times
