Springtails, are omnivores and will feed on the decaying organics, fungus and some types of mold in your terrarium or bio-active setup. Adding a starter culture of these amazing clean-up artists with your isopods assists a healthy tank (and less cleaning for yourself).

Note: It's almost impossible to count the number of these tiny beneficial creatures in your starter culture! While there may be upwards of 20-50+ mature adults, they'll also come with a multitude of unseen microscopic babies and juveniles. The goal of this is to start your springtail colony.

Additional Information

  • Our Springtails are captive bred.
  • Do not release them into the wild (per USDA APHIS)

Unpacking your Springtails

Prior to your springtails arrival, we recommend placing a glass of clean water out so that any chlorine can evaporate, and the water can reach room temperature.

  • For the safest possible shipping, your springtail starter culture arrives on a moist paper towel.
  • There may be many young springtails that are nearly impossible for the human eye to see on a paper towel.
  • We recommend briefly filling the culture cup with the room-temperature / chlorine-free water and then immediately pouring the culture into your desired enclosure.

A second option is to place the entire paper towel into your prepared enclosure and leave it there for awhile so the new springtails can freely roam to their desired locations.
