I wondered about a few things, though. Like why they don't breed these insects instead of going out and catching them. I just assumed that people bred them, but maybe it isn't always easy to do that. Not sure.
"We normally have an extra fridge just for the bugs, but sometimes I just put them in the kitchen fridge in the pillowcase. Well, one time there was a hole in the case and a good number of them got out. We found a few stuck to the butter, others were floating in the orange juice."
That's what I wondered about - how foolproof is this? I guess they've had experience enough to know which bugs will just die out when their preferred food supply dwindles. Sure would be bad if they started eating things that people didn't want them to eat, though.
