Chinese secret for health and beauty
Cockroach farms are the boom of China's business today, and these dreaded animals are being used for the elimination of edible waste, but also the Chinese have discovered its benefits for the beauty and health of human beings. "The essence of cockroach is good for healing oral and peptic ulcers, skin wounds and even stomach cancer," said Wen Jianguo, manager of the cockroach facility of the company called Gooddoctor that breeds 6,000 million cockroaches.
While a former cellphone vendor decided to invest 1 million yuan ($ 146,300) in 3.4 million cockroaches, which he sells to pig farms and fisheries as food and to pharmaceutical companies as medicinal ingredients.
Researchers are also studying the use of cockroach extract in beauty masks, diet pills and even hair loss treatments. At Gooddoctor, when the cockroaches reach the end of their useful life of about six months, they are sprayed with steam, washed and dried, before sending them to a huge tank of nutrient extraction. When asked about the possibility of roaches escaping, Wen commented that it would be worthy of a disaster film, but that he took precautions. "We have a pit full of water and fish," he said. "If the cockroaches escape, they will fall into the pit and the fish will eat them all." WOULD YOU USE CUCARACHA EXTRACT?

The Wall Brown has decreased drastically in Britain since the seventies, disappearing from much of central and southern England apparently affected by climate change. The Wall overwinters as a caterpillar but warmer autumns are encouraging a third generation to take wing, and are then caught out by food plant shortages. Cooler coastal sites are providing some refuge for the species and in Kent it can be found at the Warren and Samphire Hoe. Photo - Kearsney Birder @samphire_hoe@savebutterflies
Bugs used to freak me out. As I began learning more about them, I realized that the only reason I never liked them was because I had been conditioned to think that being scared of bugs was just a normal part of being human! How weird is that? Society does that in so many little ways, and unless we go out and learn new things and challenge the ideas and opinions we’ve never thought to challenge, we’ll never realize how many things we only *think* we don’t like or don’t agree with. Knowledge is truly power! Now, not only am I not afraid of bugs anymore, I am absolutely enthralled by them! There are so many incredible, fascinating species of creepy crawlies out there that I’m so sad I never even paid any mind to until later in life. I went from being one of the most irrationally arachnophobic people I knew to loving and owning so many amazing kinds of tarantulas, scorpions and other arachnids. Here’s one of my favorites, the Vinegaroon! These beautiful, unique arachnids are so gentle. With their large pedipalps (claws, pincers) they do look like true scorpions, but their pedipalps are actually an extension of their mouth. They can “bite” with these, but it’s very rare. I’ve handled hundreds of them and have never been bitten. Even if they do get startled, their first line of defense is to spray an acid that smells like vinegar from a gland below their tail (and no, it’s not the type of acid that burns your arm off like Xenomorph blood.) As many vinegaroons as I’ve worked with and kept over the years, I’ve yet to ever see one spray, either! They are truly gentle creatures that, when left alone or handled gently with respect, wish to simply coexist with you peacefully. 🦗🕷🐜🦂🦋 WHERE MY FELLOW BUG LOVERS AT?!
Anyone else out there that used to be afraid of bugs and isn’t anymore? Share your story! Since I’m sure there will be lots of people reading this who are still unsure about creepy crawlies, please do the arthropods a solid and leave your favorite fun bug facts in the comments! Let’s replace the fear with fascination! .

This is my juvenile female Arizona Blonde Tarantula (Aphonopelma chalcodes). She’s still quite young and has a lot of growing to do before she grows to be about the size of my palm! This species of tarantula can be found in the Southwestern US states, such as Arizona, New Mexico, and Southern California. During the day, these tarantulas seek shelter in underground burrows to avoid being eaten by potential predators. Animals like snakes, birds, and rodents, commonly prey on these spiders. Once the sun sets, these tarantulas emerge out of their underground burrows to go out and search for food. They mainly feed on insects, but have also been known to prey on small lizards and small rodents! Believe it or not, all tarantula species are pretty much blind! They can only visualize light and shadows. Tarantulas rely entirely on vibrations to detect prey. When catching prey, Arizona Blondes use their large dagger-like fangs to inject venom that paralyzes prey, as well as destroys the internal tissues of their victims. Besides venom, this spider is also equipped with another defensive, urticating hairs. These tiny hairs are located on the back of the spiders’ abdomen. When threatened, these tarantulas use their hindlegs to rub off and fling the tiny hairs into the air at its attacker. These hairs are barbed and can cause inflammatory skin irritations on humans and on animals if contact is made on the skin. They can also cause temporary blindness if the hairs enter the eyes! These tarantulas do make great pets though if anyone was wondering. I highly recommend getting an Arizona Blonde if you’re considering getting a pet tarantula. They’re definitely a great starter species for anyone who’s starting off in the hobby!
