I was wondering where everyone got their dragonflies? I can get Chase to catch moths sometimes, but are there any hints or anything? Sometimes I leave my light on and they just don't show up? And dragonflies are hard to catch...can I buy them anywhere? Thanks, ya'll!

I don't think mine have ever had a dragonfly. They do love moths, grasshoppers, june bugs, etc., that I catch for them,

I happened to catch one last week and gave to to Cali....gave is really not the word I should use. It was watching a lightening bolt come out of the nest box hole and snatching the bugger leaving wings between my fingers. Let's just say I got a lot of extra loving later that evening. :twisted:

Yeah I give Delilah moths and she goes CRAZy....once she sees them, she snatches them out of my hand and is gone like I wasn't even there... Chase usually delivers them, since i don't like buggies and she attacks them...literally!!!

Dragonflies are out during the day. Sometimes they are easy to catch, other times not. No one sells them commerically that I know of.

meal worms. they love them and you can buy them at any pet store or fishing store. and you can keep the meal worms in your fridge for weeks so you can give them at least one a day. because they are wild animals and love wild bugs.

I order my mealies. If you purchase from a bait shop make sure they are not super worms. They use hormones to get those buggers that size and will probably not be safe for your flyer. Check the section on Adult SFD Diet and there is a post about what types of worms are good for your flyers and where you can get them. :D
