Swell Live Tropical Grey Woodlice Pre-Pack are specially bred woodlice designed to be used as an ongoing food source in a bio-active set-up. These Woodlice will breed readily in forest-type set-ups, helping to keep things clean and healthy for your pets. Matched with creatures such as Springtails, the Woodlice will provide also offer plenty of food for smaller species like Dart frogs.
Why do Tropical grey woodlice make a good livefood?
These calcium-based bugs reproduce easily in dark rainforest climates with lots of organic material. They act as a clean-up gang and will consume waste from many tropical species, making reptile care easier than ever before. They're slightly larger than Springtails, growing to around 5mm in size, and a little more challenging as they can curl to protect themselves. Not only do they offer a challenge but they are also nutritious as they are extremely high in calcium.
How do I keep Tropical grey woodlice?
Each Tropical Grey Woodlice Pre-Pack should be kept in a damp environment, ideally a live setup rainforest system, allowing them to thrive, recycle nutrients and act as live food. 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. This allows the Tropical Grey Woodlice Pre-Pack to establish themselves and breed prolifically before being eaten.
