They probably fly so it isnt going to be easy I would have thought.

I haven't noticed that they fly, not readily anyway. Mine was doing well, until me and my OH went away and they forgot to remove the food. The substrate ended up rotting and it STUNK. Most of them were dead and my little babies (whom I was so proud of, they were about 12mm) were pretty much dead too. I'll start it again soon. It's wierd, I got attached to my colony cos I'd put so much effort into them lol.
