1. Myhusband caught 2 Giant grasshoppers for our grandkids, what do we feed them and do they eat bugs or grass?
Found this on the subject: Rearing Habitat * A gallon jar or aquarium with a screened lid. * Source of radiant heat (light bulb or desk light) close to, or preferably, inside the cage. This enables insects to select an appropriate temperature. Light should be on approximately 16 hours a day. This gives heat, they need to be warm. * Cup of sand for egg-laying. Sand (or vermiculite) needs to be moist to touch, but not saturated. Water needs to be added at regular intervals to keep the sand moist. If the cage is on legs, cut the bottom to hold the sand container level with the bottom of the enclosure. This way the grasshoppers can find the sand and do not have to crawl up into the container. Food Fresh mixed plant material, e.g., lettuce, cabbage, grass. Try whatever is available. Make sure food is well washed to remove any pesticide residues. Also give a small cap of bran or wheat germ as they need some dry food. Water None. They usually get water from food. Keep fresh food and bran available and insects will eat appropriate amounts to establish water balance. It is best to keep the humidity low and the enclosure dry rather than wet. Taking Care Cleaning Remove frass and uneaten plant material daily. Handling Insects can be handled gently with fingers. Hold them on either side of the thorax from above. Do not catch them by a back leg. If you do that, they will often cast off the leg and escape. In general, it is easiest to catch individuals in a small container such as an old pill bottle (approx. 4"x1"). Raising Young In the northern U.S., species may have an egg diapause. It may be possible to avoid this by keeping insects in long-day conditions. Incubate eggs at about 30C (83F) and cover sand with a jar to prevent drying out and allow the babies to hatch. Place in an area that is warm like near an oven or motor. Make sure they do not dry out. Young stages are very small and can get through most wire gauze. Other Concerns Precautions Some people become allergic to grasshoppers and develop skin or respiratory problems. This is very unlikely to occur in a short time, but it is best to keep insects in a well-aerated place. Special Considerations Grasshoppers cannot survive freezing. Normally, grasshoppers only feed above 20C (69F) (a light bulb will provide adequate heat). They will die if it gets too hot (more than 45C (112F)). They get diseases if it gets too cool or moist. A grasshopper's diet Grasshoppers chew almost any type of leaves, but prefer softer vegetation. They will favor lettuce, for example, rather than tougher material, such as tree leaves. As far as vegetables go, they prefer lettuce, carrots, and onions. If given a choice, grasshoppers usually avoid squash, peas and tomatoes leaves. (They do, however, like tomato fruit.)
2. I am looking for a 15hp tiller motor. It is going to be used with a 15ft boat. What brand do you recommend?
The dealer is more important than the brand of motor. Most motors are similar in quality or the company would go out of business. See what is being sold in your area and visit the store. Do the sales people know what they are doing? Check the service department. This will be the most important thing if something does go wrong. Do they have enough people there to get the job done or will you wait for months. Do they have a large parts dept. or will they need to order every little thing. Yamaha, Mercury, Honda, Suzuki, Evinrude, Johnson or Tohatsu/Nissan are all good names but some dealers SUCK
3. Central AC Blower works intermittently?
it could be t-stat fan switch cap motor itself or circuit board but to me it sends voltage threw g wire to fan switch i would check that first if voltage test cap then test fan switch if all voltage is going threw then check amp draw on motor
