Can the above power strip timer be programmed to turn on two outlets 3 times a day for 5 minutes(fogger), and two outlets on and off once each(lights)?

that was my next test...it looks like it DOES have that ability......get back to ya on that one....

Hey Phil. I have the same timers and I bought them thinking that you can have multiple settings per day and you CAN, but the catch is that you cant do it individually. If you set it for multiple times per day, they all follow the same settings.

Please tell me that I'm wrong, haven't gotten it all figured out and that you can do the plugins individually.

I've also been having trouble with them keeping on the right time. Seems like every once in awhile, it resets somehow back to noon.

Let me know if you get them figured out better,

-Matt

Not sure if it has been said, put Glad Press N' Seal is fantastic. I use it to seal all my froglet shoe/sweater boxes, to cover screen and in an emergency to cover the entire front of a vert if the door breaks. Amazing stuff.

Nice.

All along I've been using the standard cling wrap that needs water to help it stick to the glass of tanks.

i hate uploading pics, or i'd show you. i tried drawing a picture, but it was pretty bad,and also didnt help much, so i'll try again to explain it.

a cutting is taken... LFS is wrapped around the bottom of the cutting to keep the cut moist, the press and seal is then wrapped around the LFS to keep it in place and to aid in moisture retention.

probably already mentioned on here, but immersion blenders are great for mixing ff cultures. Just don't let your significant other catch you in the act!

I doubt these were already posted,(not reading 24-25 pages of it haha)

These dollar store salt shakers are perfect for transporting flies from room to room (to feed the frogs) if you don't want to carry the whole culture...

Behold...the Bug-Vac !

BUGVAC mini Bug Vacuum


List Price: Our Price: $10.90

SKU: KT-BUGVACm-1

Works best on a tile or slick floor....not carpet. Suction is more than adequate to snatch up all morphs and species of FF as well as bean beatles! An entire sweeping under and around your racks can sometimes produce quite a haul....re-use them and re-cycle!

So where does one find one of these?
