Our springtails spring into action

Terrarium adapted

Folsomia candida (also known as Temperate White Springtails) is the most established species in the hobby. They thrive in moist, humid environments.

Ready to go

Cultured on bentonite clay, your springtails can be easily transferred to your terrarium (existing terrariums and new).

Feeder insects

They multiply fast, making them ideal as an extra treat for dart frogs or any suitably small pets craving live snacks.

Hidden workforce

These cuties are so tiny (like 2-3mm) you’ll never know they’re there. Perfect for the bug-squeamish.

How your culture arrives 📦
