TESTIMONIALS

Here are just some of your testimonials, they are all genuine!


The cages are brilliant. Sholto (8) said that they were proper scientific observation cages. He has been busy moving in stick insects and Brian the snail! Best, Heather

Thanks so much for the great service. The kids at my school are going to love there new stick insect home. Kind regards James

Stick insects have arrived safe & well. Thank you for all the care in packaging & instructions, it was very handy. I look forward to my daughter arriving home from school for a surprise. Thanks again Ruth

I have one of your ELC enclosures already and I'm truly impressed. I have two 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 job there.Abi.

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 today thanks very much you have been amazing. I can’t wait to give this to my daughter for her birthday she is completely obsessed Thanks again Lorna


Everything was received fine and the stick insects are settling into their new home. Best regards, Rocky

The Sticks have arrived and are all well and good. My 11 year old daughter has named them Stick Astley and Sticky Minage. I did point out they are both female, to which she replied “Well they might be gender fluid!”. Any how thank you very much. Matt

…to let you know it has arrived about half hour ago. Just opened top and got the book out – leaving the rest for birthday boy on Monday! Many thanks for getting this through so quickly and thanks to Dorothy for the signing and message in the book. Best regards, Karl

The caterpillars arrived safely and are busily munching on fresh bramble and are doing well. Thanks very much! Great service as usual. Daniel

I delivered them to my grandson yesterday and he was absolutely delighted and they all have names, we went out to collect more bramble and I explained to him about the young bramble shoots. My granddaughter was also very taken with them and wants some for her birthday and my son in law, who is a teacher, is thinking about getting some for his classroom. Thanks for all your help Sally

They have safely arrived and look very perky and happy. Many thanks, Katharine

Just to let you know, the stick insects arrived safely with the rest of the order, and have since settled in to their enclosure and munched their way through a lot of bramble! Thank you very much, they're making our 7-year-old son - and the rest of the family - very happy. All the best, Leah

The stick insects are looking much better in their new cage and the eggs are safely in the HAP. Thank you for the great and efficient service! Best wishes, Verity

Just wanted to let you know that the stick insects arrived safe and well and are now being looked after. They appear very comfortable in their new surroundings. Thank you. Arieh

Stick insects received, all four safe and well in their new home. Thank you, Steve.

I have received them (Australian stick insects), thanks very much they are beautiful. Thanks Andy

Many thanks for today's delivery - the Thailand stick insects arrived safe and well, and are now installed in the cage. Wow, they are active! The pupae are also set up in the butterfly enclosure - we'll add the sticks in the morning. Thank you so much - it must take ages to pack everything so well. Jo.

My ELC cage arrived today safe and sound ,they are very nice and perfect for my sticks, it was nice to chat to you when I ordered it and your advice. Thank you,Regards, Margaret

Thank you so much for the ELC cage and supplies that we bought from you earlier this year for our classroom. Our original two stick insects have thrived and survived, and are nearly a year old now. I have attached a picture. We have hatched some of their eggs, and so now have 7 Indian stick insects in there. Jo

Thank you! Amazing service as always. Daniel


I’ve got the ELC and it looks really good. Paul

Laurie is thrilled with the book and the inscription is great. Best wishes, Rebecca

The stick insects arrived shortly before 10 o'c and are all looking happy in their ELC cage. Thank you! Jo

We've received the ELC thanks! It's great! Kate

Many thanks. Lovely brambles, my Jungle Nymphs were very happy thank you : ) Kind Regards, Manuela

I 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 I’ve just “moved in”, I also have two ELC cages with Necroscia annulipes and one with Neohirasea maerens, and in the past I’ve 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 and your service, but it was very apparent the care, thought and attention to detail that went into even the packaging of them. It was really lovely to speak 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.

Just to say thankyou for your help ,advice and excellent service re. recent purchase of cage. The cage was a great success and is much admired. Yours sincerely, Myron

ELC's arrived OK, they're great thanks. Regards Vince

All safe and sound and the habitat slipped smoothly out from the bottom of the box :-) Many thanks Joanne

They arrived earlier today all in fine health. Many thanks Steve

I just wanted to thank you for my order arriving to me with such care. I was so impressed with the way my enclosure was packaged. It was beautifully done and with much care and consideration. I absolutely love my ELC Enclosure and can't wait to introduce my Indian Sticks into it. I'm sure they will be very happy. Many thanks Vicki.

Hello, Just to let you know, received ELC cage and I'm really pleased with it! As an Engineer myself I love the simple but effective and well thought out design. And our stick insects now have much more room for their "dancing". Kind regards, Ben

Your customer service has been so lovely over the years and this time was no different. Thank you so much! Best wishes, Lilly

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

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

I’m 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. Regards David

Caterpillars arrived safe and sound. ALWAYS a highlight and will take my mind off the piles of marking that just hit my desk! Ned

All arrived safely. Set-up yesterday for Sons birthday. One very happy boy and 2 happy stick insects with their new home. Thanks. Rich

All received, thank you - I haven't had time yet to open the package but I assume all is okay - thank you for expediting the shipping. Daniel (Belgium)

The ELC insect cage is fantastic. I cant wait to fill it! Many thanks for all your help. Karl

I'm delighted to let you know my Stick insects (and other items) arrived early this morning. Everything was in excellent condition and the "Stickies" seem to have settled in nicely. Thanks again for providing such an excellent service. Kind Regards, Liam


Just to let you know everything went well with the delivery. Followed your instructions to the letter and all four stick insects are well plus two very happy kids. Thanks, Stephen

Very many thanks; this is the second ELC cage I've ordered from you, I was so pleased with the first. It's expensive but well worth it for how happy the sticks are to live in it! Best wishes, Linda.

Got the MIC cage. It looks great. Thanks for the very prompt service and delivery. Best wishes, Matt.(New Zealand).

3 hatched yesterday. Thank you very much for getting in touch and keeping me up to date. I'll be recommending you to others. Thanks. Kind regards, Mick.

I have ordered from you previously and very happy with your product. My husband has taken the cage to school for the sticks there so I now need to order another! Louise.

Everything good, Stick insects already seem settled and eating up food. Thank you. Matt.

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


Loving the ELC cage - stick insects doing far better than other cages I've used in the past. Think I'll be using these for all stick insects, mantids etc in future. Gary.

Thank you my insects are now happy and safe from my cat in their new home ;-) xxx, Donna.

Chuffed to bits with my new MIC cages, thank you. My Haaniella grayii look even more magnificent, now. I loved the bag and pen, too, thank you. Roll on payday for my next cage! Janet.

Thank you so much, they arrived safely this afternoon and are in their new cage now. Catherine.

All arrived safely, many thanks. Best wishes, Lesley

The Swarm Locust Cage works great, we will soon order another one, Roger (Sweden).

Very pleased with ELC cage, beasties will be happy! Neil.

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, Marian.


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, Moira.

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, Claire.


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

Excellent enclosure is this ELC, Gerard.

Everything arrived safe and sound, very well packed, many thanks Helen.

Safely arrived and installed. Thank you, Jane.

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for the stick insects my daughter absolutely loves them she has named them Jamie, Sydney, Spike & Nikki???? The cage is absolutely fantastic & very practical! Once again thank you for all your help! Best Regards Kate X

Thank you for delivering our order promptly. It arrived well packaged and exactly to the instructions given. We are very pleased with your product......and it appears so are the insects! Regards.


Many thanks All arrived safely and the children are loving them! All the best David.

Just to let you know we have received our order. Very excited to receive the cage, accessories and stick insects this morning.  We are leaving them as you instructed to warm up slowly. Hoping all will be ok!!!!  Many thanks and kind regards, Rachel and family.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and to tell you that our order arrived yesterday before the deadline of 4pm and in pristine condition. All items were very well packaged and we are delighted with the service you have provided. I will definitely be recommending you to other schools. The two snails are now affectionately known as Benny and Bertie. Our Stick Insects remain unnamed as yet. Kindest Regards, Louise
