The standard springtail for bioactive setups. This is a very versatile springtail that can be used in any kind of setup, humid or arid, as long as a moist area is maintained at all times.
Breeds very quickly and can be used for feeders for animals that require very small live food.
Springtails are amazing little critters that help solve a lot of problems in bioactive setups and terrariums. In a bioactive setup, the springtails work with the isopods to create the perfect clean up crew – the isopods break down larger waste created by the primary inhabitants, while the springtails eat the mold and fungus that thrives in humid setups. Fungus gnats and most mites that end up in terrariums also feed on mold and fungus, so a healthy springtail population can eventually outcompete the gnats and mites for food and control the populations.
Starter cultures include enough springtails to seed one enclosure, or start your own master culture.
Shipped on Sphagnum moss to ensure springtails are not crushed in transit. Typically on charcoal when picking up locally without shipping.
