From Monday 12th April

As a non-essential shop I will be inviting customers along to my bug room to collect their order or choose their animals by appointment. I have added some "collection only" items to the website as an incentive!

  • Malaysian Green Jewel Stick Insect (Necrosia annulipes) Nymph

Common Name : Malaysian Green Jewel Stick Insect
Scientific Name : Necrosia annulipes

Size : Nymph
Status: Captive Bred

Food : Privet, Lilac

A beautiful new species of stick insect. Bright green in colour with delicate cerise wings.  Adults are long and quite slender (approx. 10-12cm).

Sizes shown are average length from head to tip of abdomen, including ovipositor, but not antennae.

Stick insects are generally sent as a male and female pair, or single male. If you require a single female please telephone to check availability (unless I have a surplus of females a male will be sent). It is not possible to sex nymphs from all species.


How I keep mine

These stick insects are truly stunning, their colours need to be seen to be believed. They are very easy to keep, I keep mine in a fish tank with a wood and mesh lid. I have a layer of peat or coir on the floor (3-4cm) to provide humidity and somewhere to lay their eggs. I feed them Privet once a week in a jar of water, with tissue around the rim to prevent any from downing.  I spray them every couple of days with tepid water.  My Malaysian Green Jewel stick insects are kept with other Privet eating stick insects and they all get on fine together. That's a really great thing with stick insects that they can be kept communally, with so many of my bugs if I put them together I would end up with one fat one! Take care when tending to your stick insects as they can fly, especially the lighter males.  It is a good idea to shut all doors and windows, just in case.
