I have lots!

Currently have about 90 nymphs, and probably a similar amount of eggs, they just don't stop breeding!

So, if any of you want some, let me know and I'll get some in the post to you.

Or if anyone has any suggestion for places that might want them, that'd be cool.

Cheers.

Pm'd you back Mothikka.

There are free BTW guys, I've got about 40-50 going out already, so that leaves me another 40 or so plus eggs.

Waiting to hear back from some people but they're still available at the moment.

Cheers.

I havent kept phasmids for a while and as I have a few empty tanks I'll take as many as you want to get rid of.

Cool - PM me your addresses and we can discuss how many you want, I'll get them all posted out Monday, I'll PM you back to confirm they're sent.

danman - I wasn't charging postage, as long as you don't want them sent to a friend in Australia! I'm sure that seems stupid, but it's not tonnes of money, and I'm happy to give them to people from BN, I've had plenty of help from everyone on here.

Cheers.

These are all pretty much gone now, to the people above and some poeple who PM'd, friends etc.

I was planning to post tomorrow, but apparently there's a post office strike action?! so it will be Tuesday, in case I missed anyone on the PM.

Cheers.

Actually, that was very stupid - I just spent £30 on postage! :oops: :oops: :oops:

I know a couple of you already offered to pay postage anyway, so thanks for that, and if anyone else wants to chip in, I'll PM everyone my paypal address with their postage costs, and how many nymphs I sent them, don't feel like you have to pay at all - I stand by my not charging, but if you do want to chip in that would be great. :lol:

I also forgot to put heat packs in with them, hope they're OK, this is the first time I've shipped anything and it just didn't occur to me until they'd shipped. it's all gone next day though.

Cheers.

I would pay postage, however, do you still have eggs? (and if not, will you have some available from your breeding again some time?)
PS: I am outside of the UK.


and, as for not putting heatpacks in, well, in the middle of july, I don't think you shall have to worry about that, with heatpacks in, it might be too much heat now

I have eggs, but they're hatching at the moment.

The adults are still laying though, so it shouldn't be a problem to get some fresh eggs to you.

I posted some the Norway last Tuesday though, and they haven't arrived yet, so that's a bit of a worry, but eggs should be OK if they're newly laid.

I'll be cleaning them out a the weekend so i'll grab some out and let you know how many i have if that's cool?

sure that's cool!

well, I remember having had eggs shipped in the passed, never seemed to be a problem, but it does take a few days. (but in my experience it was not more than a week, but of course, norway could be different)

The ones that you sent me are growing like weeds :thumb:

At a guess i would say that the have grown by 50% in a week !!! :yikes:

Must be the temperature, the small space they are kept in and lots of food. :D

whoa! you must have got something right - I've started keeping more in of my nymphs in one tub as we discussed, seem fine, I have another 50 or so hatched since I posted everyones out, they're relentless!

The ones I posted to Norway finally arrived on Thursday! I was worried sick, convinced they'd all be dead - but they were all OK!

I have 7-8 to a cricket tub with 4-5 springs of leaf so they cant move more than 1/2 inches before they find food and spray them every other day.

Mine are probably working out about the same space wise - I'm keeping about 20-25 to a tall sweet jar, but there's definitely more opportunity for them to wander away from the food plant.

I might split one jar into smaller tubs and see how they compare in a few weeks.

Hi

Just wanted to tell that all of my nymphs are doing great. It took 9 days for them to get to Norway, but all arrived alive and healthy:)
I feed them Syringa vulgaris, and they are eating allot and grows fast.

hey sorry long time no reply - been crazy busy!

Peter - they're looking great, amazed that they're growing so fast, what are you using on the jar tops to stop them falling in? that's the biggest pain at the moment, I've been using cotton wool but it soaks up the water if I put to much in.

Vegard - glad to hear they're doing well, amazing it took so long for them to arrive but a big relief they all made it!

I have another 90 nymphs already, plus eggs - I'll check the eggs and post back for you popo, see if you want some.

Cheers.

Can these cohabit safely with carausius morosus?

If so I am interested :)

popo - i'll sort out eggs at the weekend, have a count up and drop you a PM.

Mazzer - to be honest I'm not sure, the only other phasmids I keep are heteropteryx dilatata, in a seperate tank, I'm still very new to these.

I don't have a home for any of the others yet though, so if you want to do some research there'll definitely be some left! or I'm happy to put up a thread about cohabiting and see what people come back with.

Cheers.
