What is a Swell Live Springtails Pre-Pack?

Swell Live Springtails Pre-Packs are containers filled with lively Springtails (sometimes called 'Spring tails' erroneously) an outstanding species of bioactive custodians that will both challenge your reptiles and feed them. These Springtails are small insects that only measure a few millimetres long, making them a great food for small pets, such as Dart Frogs or Mourning Geckos.

What are Springtails used for?

These bugs breed readily in the right rainforest terrarium set up and do an exceptional job of breaking down organic waste, so it doesn't build up and go mouldy in the enclosure. Springtails also allow plants to use their waste to their advantage and thrive from it. When bioactive enclosures work correctly they are extremely efficient with little need for upkeep.

How do you add Springtails to an enclosure?

This Pre-Pack tub offers a soil tub filled with Springtails for you to release into your enclosure. To get them well set up in an effective ecosystem, we would recommend getting these in first before adding any pets and waiting for between 10-14 days before adding your pet. This allows the Springtails to establish themselves before being eaten.

Where do I get Springtails?

You can buy Springtails directly from Swell Reptiles by simply adding them to your basket and heading to the checkout, as you would with any other product purchase. Once you have paid, we will send your order to our live food distributor, who will dispatch your Springtails on a next-day delivery service to anywhere in the UK - please allow slightly longer across weekends and bank holidays or on orders to Northern Ireland and the Scottish islands.
