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. Sizes shown are average length from head to tip of abdomen, including ovipositor, but not antennae.
It is very difficult to write a care guide for bugs and I think that is one of the reasons why there is so much conflicting information on-line. Bugs live in a micro climate that can be difficult to recreate in the home, as everyone's home is different. Rather than tell you how you should keep your pets I have decided to simply explain 'how I keep mine'. You are always welcome to give me a call to discuss care issues in more detail.
