Since all of my vivariums with ants in them are exploding in population of springtails and isopods, I decided to culture them. I have tons of species, many of which cannot be regularly found and especially not bought anywhere else. These rare springtails will be for sale soon, but for now just message me for common species. 


I'm not overpricing, just trying to make a few bucks back. 


I have Folsomia candida, a slow species better used for feeding small ants, and another quickly growing and moving species that will be good for a naturalistic setup for sale. I will also try to get some of my mites (if anyone even wants them) they're phoretic and will only help clean up. 


ATTENTION: Only in the USA! I am not exporting over borders.
