Orchids have finally started to hatch. Much larger hatches than previous ones so hopefully everyone is able to get some. H. venosa (Golden), H. majuscula, ghosts, and S. pretiosa also have hatched.
Added Chlidonopter, Hestiasula, Rhombodera, and Sphodromantis nymphs. Orchids due to hatch any day, as well as pretiosa.
Most of those species will not be ready to be shipped until May 6th. I have given a small price break as usual for early orders (due to the wait), but the discounts will be removed on May 1st. If other species hatch before your order is shipped, you can add to an existing order by emailing me and requesting an invoice, or simply order from the website and add a note to combine your orders. I will refund the extra shipping charge.
Orchid ooth hatched. Smaller hatch but nymphs will be available in about a week or so. I will also post the last Idolomantis nyhmphs for sale here shortly. They will be ready to ship in a week to 10 days or so. Boxer nymphs will also be ready in a week to 10 days as well as lobata.
Idolomantis nymphs available. Also added Theopropus elegans species. Orchids have hatched and will be available in a week or so once they start shedding, as well as more D. lobata nymphs.
So… yeah. One of the refrigerators I use to keep pupae died sometime in the last few days. I went to open it yesterday to grab some out and a good number of bluebottle flies came busting out. Thankfully they had either just hatched, or wings did not fold out properly due to the lack of airflow or something, so they just fell out and crawled. Very disappointing.
Needless to say, any orders containing housefly or bluebottle pupae will be delayed until Wednesday, assuming the new batches get here in time. I will be ordering some next day on Monday so hopefully they are here Tuesday, or early Wed. I will send out emails to all those affected.
First two groups of Idolomantis nymphs have been sold out for a few days now. I am waiting for the third group to fatten up a little before posting them. They are voracious so it should only be a day or 2.
***UPDATE*** Second group that hatched this morning was just added. Just a few days behind the first.
There are now Idolomantis nymphs available. It was a small hatch of around 50, but obviously I am keeping a large group for breeding. There will be more to come within the next week or 2. There are also several dead leaf species available, including truncata. I am still waiting on orchids. An ooth hatched but not enough nymphs to list for sale. I generally only list if 20+ will be available. I am expecting the others to hatch any day.
If you have an existing order and wish to add things before it is shipped, please let me know.
