    Unhappy

    hey Guys,
    just wondering, does anyone have spring tails in their garden that is the size of 2-3 mm? if so can i send u a SASA for some? i like to watch my sundew catches them for food. once they jump onto the dew, then they are stuck. the one in my garden are too small (like 1mm).

    I very much doubt that any springtails will survive a trip in the mail. Envelopes get rolled through some intense pressure in sortng machines. That and the buggers are so small they'd likely escape. If you have springtails already then just let them grow [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    little green bugs that do backflips to escape from danger and suck plant sap.

    Actually they are little gray/brown/black/silver/other drab colour insects that feed on detritus. Only real bad infestations would result in feeding on live matter

    yep, and I have lots of them!




    anyways, why in the world would anyone want them? they're so annoying!!! It's impossible to feed them to cps, as their tail just breaks off, then they hop away!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] lol. I think they're also called siverfish.

    They aren't the same a silverfish but they are related.
    And why would someone want to introduce another pest into their home?
