What kind of larvae? I would be interested in doing that too. I am
very distressed by the general public perception that the only good
bug is a dead bug, and their instant predilection to annihilate any
insects that invade their space, no matter how harmless the species
I try to educate people about how interesting and important insects
are, but it seems to fall on deaf ears unless one talks to very young
children. I find insects to be fun and interesting pets, And I would
like to know more about what species are easy enough for children to
care for and are readily available.
