Beginners ‘Starter kit’ for small/medium-sized insects (H14xW11) (cm)

Beginners ‘Starter kit’ for small/medium-sized insects (mantids, stick insects etc…). Also suitable for arachnids such as spiders and scorpions.

Beginners starter kit for sale. This is a basic plastic enclosure for your mantis, stick insect, spider, scorpion, and any other invertebrate of small-medium size.

This beginners ‘starter kit’ comes with everything you will need to make it a friendly, and functional enclosure for your beloved pets 🙂 Contents include; Substrate (a mixture of peat soil, coco fibre, and vermiculite) to provide good humidity when moist, a fake green moss vine, and a fake lavender flower. The lid is a mesh/fabric material, that is specifically designed to enable your mantis to hang and moult safely. It also has holes cut in the lid, to enable ventilation.

All you need to do is add the substrate,  and arrange the rest of the items as you prefer 🙂 Keep the substrate a little moist, by spraying the sides of the enclosure every 1-2 days. The gallery of images show all the aspects of the starter kit….And don’t forget to get yourself a cool mantis to put inside 🙂 Oh, and have fun!

    I bought this alongside a giant asian mantis (my first ever mantis) and the mantis has settled in extremely well! The fake foliage is great and bendable so you can choose where and how your mantis can climb! Would recommend for any beginners like me! It came the next morning and Mitch was great to talk to!

    Hi I was looking at buying the a mantice and noticed it comes with a nymph also ? Can I put that in the same enclosure as the adult ir do I need a separate enclosure? Also how often to they need fed and do you sell the food they need ? Thanks

      Hi, the ‘nymph’ is the mantis that is being sold.

      They aren’t adults, just younger mantids…..a young mantis is called a nymph 🙂
