I am new and I have a question. I would like someone to help me with. I do alot of catfishing. And I am using something new. They are called waterbugs. But they are not found near water or lakes anything like that.
I walk up and down the streets and pick them up out of the grass and off the side walks. They only come out at nights. And some of them has wings and some dont.
So my question is how would I keep them stored up and start raising them at home. And how do i feed them. Which one's are female and which one's are male's. So if anyone would not care to help me out I would really appreciate. Please post here or email me at ohfd286@hotmail.com

Do they look like this?

If not, what do they look like?

Most water bugs stay in the water. If this is an adult of a species with aquatic larvae, you would have to breed them in a pond-like setting. That would be hard indoors. If we can figure out which species of bug that you have, then we can look into information on breeding, sexing, and feeding. I don't want to do a lot of work on one bug if it's really some other bug.

Robyn, he is talking about some sort of land bug. And i think fishermen are cruel.
