Indian stick insects
Indian stick insects are the best stick insects to start with. Indian stick insects are easy to handle, easy to breed, and suitable for all ages. Adults are 11cm long and have red tops to their front legs. Reproduce by parthenogenesis (virgin birth) so do not require a male. In this species 99.99% are female, and 0.01% are male.

Indian stick insects eat bramble (blackberry) leaves, also hazel leaves. The leaves should be lightly misted with cold tap water, ideally once a day. House up to twenty adults in the ELC stick insect cage.

Young adults are available, these are ideal for handling and you can enjoy collecting their eggs.

Pack of four Indian stick insects, young adults ... £16.62

Free colour information sheet included.
