Default woodlice

Hey guy and girls.

I need a favour, im on the hunt for a large number of woodlice, be them normal house woodlice or tropical. I've just finished 2 more live planted tanks and need a new clean up crew so if anyone has any spare/for sale let me know. Secondly if anywhere knows where i cant get any from it would be appriciated as well

If i have no luck i'll buy some from dartfrog.co.uk but im trying to save some pennies at the moment.

Jay

try your garden
no seriously most lurk underneath stones, flat objects, rotting timber or underneath a fertilizer bag
probably worth giving them a detox before introducing them tho
good luck and happy hunting

collecting from the garden is ok, just make sure they are well fed and quarentined first.

I've got BILLIONS of woodlice everywhere in my garden!!! It seems strange imagining not having so many :S

I think dartfrog was/is selling them.
