Misc extra nymphs available

I have some extra nymphs available.  I do not want to add them to the stock as dozens of people will be notified from the wait list but only a few nymphs are available.  I will update the list as I sell them, and add more as they come available.

Parasphendale sp. (budwing mantis) – 5 pre-sub females, $10 each

P. wahlbergii – 6 L2/3 nymphs – $10 each – Sold

C. gemmatus – 6 L2/3 nymphs – $7.50 each – Sold

Email me if interested.

 

Orchids hatched

Yes, orchids have finally hatched.  It will be a week or 2 before they start to shed.  Once they do, I will post them.  There should be about 3 groups, most likely around 2 weeks apart.  Lobata and Idolomantis nymphs should shed in 1 week as well.

D. lobata hatched

D. lobata ooths are starting to hatch.  Nymphs will be available as soon as they start shedding to L2.  Orchids expected to hatch any day.  Also expecting more wahlbergii, gemmatus, and ghost to be available soon.  I have extended the idolomantis sale for a few more days as I had a few ooths hatch that I did not believe were fertile since I never witnessed mating (good thing I didn’t throw them out!).

Shipping Delays

Shipping this time of year takes a bit longer, as I am sure many of you have noticed.  Monday will be the final priority shipping day this year, and Wed will be the final shipping day for express packages.  I strongly suggest express shipping until the new year, simply due to all of the delays.  Priority shipments will continue again after the new year on Jan 3rd.

Ghosts and Wahlbergii ordering halted temporarily

I may have overestimated how many ghosts and wahlbergii would be L2 by next Wed, so I have put a hold on them for a few days to gauge how many I will have for shipping next week.  I will be adding more within a week for the follow weeks shipments.  If interested, make sure you add yourself to the wait list.
