The bumblebee was officially added to the endangered species list.

 Please:

  • Go plant an organic flower native to wherever you are
  • Leave your “weeds” alone they probably aren’t hurting anything
  • Stop using/buying Roundup and all other insecticides, herbicides, pesticides. 
  • If you have a bee problem (which almost never happens) call a local beekeeper! They will remove them safely free of charge
  • Bumblebees usually nest underground and just wanna be left alone! They won’t hurt you. To prevent destroying their habit during hibernation, avoid mowing yards until April or May. If you do mow, raise the blades to the highest setting

Please save my fat clumsy fuzzy friends I love them and they’re very good pollinators.

BIG UPDATE!

I’ve finally finished my biological patches set! After many months of designing, editing, and trial and error, I’m proud to post up photos of the final products!

They are woven with bright, beautiful colors that will endure many washes and adventures to come. They’re only $8 in my store:

Here are the first five patches in my biological patch set. Once all ten are made, the rainbow of studies will be complete! Each one is illustrated, digitized, and embroidered by me. Stay tuned for more! Next up is herpetology ;)

INSECTS ARE THE BEST BUILDERS

THEY BUILD THE COOLEST HOUSES

Here’s a happy video for you. <3 we filmed it toward the end of last year but wanted to wait and publish as we get back into the swing of things – our regularly scheduled content is coming back!

TUMBLR PLEASE HELP

When I came into work this morning, I saw this little guy on the front porch. His name is Avery, my research has led me to believe that he’s a male Luna moth, and he’s not looking good. I brought him inside because he was getting eaten up by ants, but now that he’s here I don’t know what’s best for him. 

IF ANYONE KNOWS WHAT I SHOULD DO, PLEASE TELL ME. @glumshoe

I’VE ONLY KNOWN HIM FOR MAYBE AN HOUR BUT I LOVE HIM SO MUCH AND WANT THE BEST FOR HIM.
