Mixed leaf litter

This is a very full plastic bag of mixed hardwood leaf litter, which we use (with great success!) with our own isopods and millipedes. We do not spray our trees or lawn. Leaves may include, but are not necessarily limited to: maple, Callary pear, apple, plum, locust, pecan, and willow. May also include leaf stems or small twigs, and well as small amounts of grass and other plant material. It is suggested that you sanitize the leaves before use.

Two sizes available:

1 quart $3.00 (must choose medium flat rate box or larger)

1 gallon: $6.00 (please contact about shipping options, as it will depend on your order size.)

Isopod Culture Kit (small) $5.00

This culture kit contains everything you need to culture isopods for 2+ months:

1 32- ounce deli cup with ventilated lid, and

2+ inches of pre-sanitized substrate, including organic compost, fallen hardwood leaves, and calcium

Just add a little water, your isopods, and you’re good to go. Recommended for dwarf to medium isopod species. Not recommended for the giant Spanish Porcellio species.

Isopod Culture Kit (Large) $12.00

This culture kit consists of a 6-quart Sterilite container and 1.5-2” of presanitized substrate, including organic compost, mixed hardwood leaves, and calcium. This container is suitable for a permanent colony of all but the largest isopod species indefinitely, although you will want to split the culture and/or upgrade container size eventually for maximum production. Add ventilation for Armadillidium and large Spanish Porcellio species.

Shipping

I generally ship Tuesdays. Please let me know ASAP if you need another ship date, and we’ll see what we can work out.

small priority box: $7.90

Some small cultures (up to 3) can ship priority for $7.90, although in hot or cold weather I recommend shipping in a larger container for better insulation, and the possibility of adding heat or cold packs.

Medium priority box: $14.40

Most cultures can fit in a medium priority box, even when combined with other cultures. Heat and cold packs may be recommended. A 72-hour heat pack is $2, a cold pack is free.

Priority Express 1 or 2-day $45.00

LAG is provided if you choose Priority Express (1 or 2 day) as long as temperatures are above freezing and below 95 F in my ZIP code and yours during the time of transit and the signature requirement is NOT waived. There may be exceptions for certain temperature-sensitive species, which is will note at the time of inquiry.  I may suggest or require that you pay a nominal fee for cold or heat pack(s) if temperatures are near these extremes. 

Refund Policy

(If there is a DOA under LAG coverage, send me clear photographs of the deceased animals within 6 hours of receipt. I will refund the purchase price (not including shipping) or reship once, at my discretion, although every effort will be made to accommodate your preference if one is expressed.)
