Glenn Kvassay - The Complete Cricket Breeding Manual
See our website for full details at www.zegaenterprises.com.auREVOLUTIONARY NEW CRICKET AND COCKROACH BREEDING SYSTEMS Let Us Show You Why!! Most people have given up on breeding crickets as conventional techniques are too much hassle and effort and cockroaches can be messy, smelly and difficult to contain. Thankfully our insect breeding systems are very different after more than a decade of commercial production and experimentation, we have pioneered revolutionary and unique techniques that have halved maintenance, eliminated offensive odor and doubled production. These systems can save you thousands and thousands of dollars !! WHAT OUR SYSTEMS CAN DO FOR YOU !!!! How would you like automated systems that ; Needs no active management;Collects waste for you;Requires only 5 minutes maintenance every 7-10 days (less time than standing in line at the pet store)Food/ water dispensers that attends to your insects for 14 days or more;Systems so productive that the average family will be able to feed 4-12 bearded dragons (depending of feeding rate) just from their scrap vegetables;Thats over $1400 each year completely free .or even better this could be income!!Have you ever wondered why 95% of people succeed to breed crickets for the first couple of months, then nearly all of them have given up after just 6-12 months using conventional techniques.?? The answer is simple .breeding crickets is easy, the hard bit is continuing with a laborious maintenance schedule (daily spraying, moving crickets between containers, cleaning, feeding etc.). To complete the failure cycle, most colonies then collapse from disease and pests due to lack of maintenance aaaahhh!! HOW DO OUR SYSTEMS WORK... Well in a nut shell, we have created two separate zones within a single container (conventional techniques require up to 6 separate containers); one high humidity area ideal for breeding; and a lower humidity area which is required for housing and food/water. We have also developed a unique detritus collection system which collects the waste and prevents contamination of breeding substrate and food areas. This makes cleaning a breeze, eliminates odours and disease, increases egg viability and significantly increases cricket production. We have water and food dispersers which do the feeds for you, even when your on holidays! Unlike conventional techniques which need to be actively managed (daily spraying, and moving pinheads to new containers) our systems run themselves ?. And our cockroach breeding systems are equally unique (available on Amazon). Don't get stuck with old techniques that are proven to be unsuccessful over the long term. You really can produce more insects with much less effort. Its time to work smarter, not harder! Introducing the most advanced, low maintenance and productive cricket and cockroach breeding systems in the world.

John Updike - The Widows of Eastwick
More than three decades have passed since the events described in John Updike’s The Witches of Eastwick. The three divorcées—Alexandra, Jane, and Sukie—have left town, remarried, and become widows. They cope with their grief and solitude as widows do: they travel the world, to such foreign lands as Canada, Egypt, and China, and renew old acquaintance. Why not, Sukie and Jane ask Alexandra, go back to Eastwick for the summer? The old Rhode Island seaside town, where they indulged in wicked mischief under the influence of the diabolical Darryl Van Horne, is still magical for them. Now Darryl is gone, and their lovers of the time have aged or died, but enchantment remains in the familiar streets and scenery of the village, where they enjoyed their lusty primes as free and empowered women. And, among the local citizenry, there are still those who remember them, and wish them ill. How they cope with the lingering traces of their evil deeds, the shocks of a mysterious counterspell, and the advancing inroads of old age, form the burden on Updike’s delightful, ominous sequel.
