La Chincheria (the bug hut) is a bug-rearing greenhouse in the town of Gamboa, Panama, built to rear Matador bugs (Anisoscelis alipes). We grow maracuya, granadilla, and other plant varieties in the passion fruit family to ensure successful bug rearing. It took about 2.5 years and lots of help from interns, students, and collaborators but we have now established successful rearing protocols for many species of leaf-footed bugs particularly in the flag-footed bug group. If you would like to collaborate on a research project with these insects please contact me. I encourage researchers from multiple levels- undergraduate, graduate, and post-docs-to come work in the bug hut.
