||I just wanted to say how happy I am -
and how happy all the stickies appear to be .. great for me & the
grandchildren. Its interesting to note differences - the pink winged are so
active out of the cage & occasionally fly -- but not always - they
beautiful. But the most active are the two males Thai - one especially so --
he's a real Houdini -- when I'm cleaning the cage I put all 10 in a smaller
cage -- and when I count them back -- I get to 9 and find he's snuck out
Somehow-- luckily he seems to want to stay near - usually on the outside of the
cage-- I'm sure it's always the same one. And when I open their cage hes
always the first to the top . Anyway I'm also on the lookout for eggs --
nothing found yet .. So thanks for the fun they are giving us -- and think they
having fun too -- my grandchildren like 'sticky races' on the kitchen carpet --
but they all go in different directions-- hilarious . Thanx Richard
arrived safely and our stick insects are loving their new bigger home. Thank
you for keeping me update re delivery. Regards, James
I just wanted to
share my stick insects in their new palace! (photo attached).Thank you,
The stick insects have arrived safely and all were still clinging
to their foliage. Great excitement in the classroom! We have got them
particularly for one five year old boy who is fascinated by insects and indeed
is very difficult to get into school unless I lure him in with a jar of
ladybirds or centipedes or wood lice to look at. Anyway, I thought he might
come in to see how the stick insects are doing especially if he is looking
after them. However the other children are also delighted with them. I found
lots of hazel and bramble in the hedges near school. We enjoyed getting their
home ready. I will tell you how they settle in. Thank you for your advice and
help,Best wishes, Jill

pairs of growing jungle nymphs in it. The new one is for my Indian stick
insects. I have approximately 15-20 so this will be perfect. Regards, Clair.
Our new girls, Frenchie and Rizzo, far from being scared or shy, jumped
straight on my hand and decided to explore my hair instead of transferring
straight to their new home and meeting their new family. All now appears to be
well. Humidity is steady at 75% right now and hopefully with the ELC it will
stay stable with a good spray before bed time. You guys are doing a fantastic
The ELC cage has arrived, I'm very happy with it, thank
you. I bought my first cage from you back in 1993/4, I was 13 or 14 years old.
It was my first ever large purchase; it only fell apart a few years ago but I
just kept fixing it. It was a brilliant cage. It was one of the large cages
with the door in the front. I know this new one isn't as big but I'm sure it
will last just as long. Many thanks again Sarah
The cage bundle arrived

my daughter for her birthday she is completely obsessed Thanks again
Everything was received fine and the stick insects are settling
into their new home. Best regards, Rocky

received the ELC thanks! It's great! Kate
Many thanks. Lovely brambles,
my Jungle Nymphs were very happy thank you : ) Kind Regards, Manuela
really like these ELC cages as display cages, they look really nice (modern)
and give a lot of visual access to the insects, and most species do seem to
thrive in them despite their different humidity and food needs. Currently apart
from the Siplyloidea sipylus Ive just moved in, I also have
two ELC cages with Necroscia annulipes and one with Neohirasea maerens, and in
the past Ive also used them for Peruphasma schultei and Orthomeria
pandora as well. Thanks again, Caroline
Thank you very much. The
brambles look great thank you. Many thanks David
May I just take the
opportunity to thank you so much! Not only were we so happy with the enclosures

to you on the telephone, you were so friendly and helpful and I have learned
such a lot! Overall, we are delighted with the whole service you've offered and
in future, we'd happily return to you. Many Thanks, Cristiana.

Btw, I've ordered a cage with
you before, for my son, and have been really impressed with it. The stick

to keep the cage maintained. Thanks, Emily

Hi just to
let you know caterpillar arrived safely he is wonderful, everybody loves him.
Many thanks , Karen
The ELC bundle is a great product and very well
wrapped. Thanks again, Piers
Im at least as interested in these
creatures as my grandson. It would be interesting to see the New Guinea stick
insects in their natural habitat. Even with the few bramble leaves you
provided, the camouflage is surprisingly effective. Thank you for you help.
Caterpillars arrived safe and sound. ALWAYS a highlight
and will take my mind off the piles of marking that just hit my desk!
All arrived safely. Set-up yesterday for Sons birthday. One very
happy boy and 2 happy stick insects with their new home. Thanks.
Thought I'd drop you a note to say how pleased I am with our stick
insects and cage and to thank you for your advice. They seem perfectly happy in
their new home and they're a great first pet for our 3year old who is being
very careful with them. Best regards, Caroline

The New Guinea stick insects are still
brilliant, and we are having a lot of fun handling them, they do seem to poo an
awful lot! Phil.
Thank you very much for the Macleays Spectre.They have
arrived and I love them both. John.
We are delighted with our stick
insects! I was wondering, do you want me to ship back the packaging? Seems a
shame to throw it out. Fiona

Very pleased with ELC cage, beasties will be happy!
I just thought I would let you know how pleased I am with the ELC
stick insect cage, it fits perfectly where I have it and it looks great. The
Thailand Marbled stick insects I received were really well packed and were in
perfect condition. All in all a good purchase, I am also very pleased with the
time the lady spent on the phone, giving me advice on which insects could exist
together. The ones I have seem fine. With much gratitude,
Just some feedback on your
excellent ELC cage. I was so pleased to have found your website as I had been
hunting for a suitable tall cage - our stick insects immediately seemed to
really enjoy their cage and its also a nice looking cage to have in the house,
The ELC arrived on time and in great condition. Its a great
vivarium. I have been looking for one this size for along time. I have moved my
Indian and Thai phasmids in and they are loving the extra space. Many thanks
for a great product, Andy.
I had the bee cages parcels and they were in
very good conditions. All the cages and glasses perfect, David (Spain).
Just to say I got my stick insects this morning and they are perfect. The ELC
cage is great too. Many thanks, Chris.
The Q Boxes are brilliant, I have
currently got 19 adult Indian Stick Insects and 16 nymphs,
Thank you for a
brilliant service and great advice. It was good to know that they will go into
"twig" mode when stressed. We have one brave one who is fully functioning, one
who is half-way there and two who will hopefully be out and about in the
morning. For now we are calling them the "Twiglet Girls"...not very original,
but we like it! Claire.
Just to let you
know that they arrived safe and sound and now in their new home :) Thanks for
all your help, Simone

yet. Kindest Regards, Louise
