(PAID) (BensBeasts $5) White Spot Assassin Bugs (Platymeris biguttatus)

Not open for further replies.
Up for auction is a group of 5 White Spot Assassin Bugs (Platymeris biguttatus) nymphs.


Not my photo, found randomly online.

White Spot Assassin Bugs (Platymeris biguttatus) are beautiful predatory insects that are easy to keep and breed. They feed on other bugs (crickets, mealworms, roaches, etc.) and can even take prey that is their size, or larger!

I use coconut coir for substrate and they like a terrarium that is mostly bone dry, but with a corner kept moist. This is important for egg laying females, as most eggs will be buried in the moist corner. They like a misting once or twice a week, but be sure it dries in an hour or so. Give them places to hide under, like cork bark and other pieces of wood. They use this as shelter and as a place to ambush prey. Assassin Bugs are nocturnal, but will feed during the day too. I keep mine at room temp with no supplemental lighting (they often hide from light).

Note 1: This listing is for 5 small White Spot Assassin Bugs (Platymeris biguttatus) nymphs. They do not have white spotted wings until they reach adulthood.

Note 2: Be careful as they can deliver a nasty bite (equal to a bee sting). Be sure to do your research before bidding.

Shipping is $12 for the USA.

PM with any questions!
