Indian Stick Insects Free To Good Homes

Found 11th Aug 2009
I have 17 stick insects to give away unfortunately its collection only i am based in Preston.
You will need a reasonably sized container, they only need a damp issue in the bottom and they eat privette leaves from a hedge change this for a couple of days.They breed by themselves so if you did get just 1 then you may end up with eggs but you could just put theses in the bin with the tissue.NOT TO BE USED AS BATE AND FOOD!!!

They are pets that do not need alot of....................................
Food
Looking after
Cleaning out
Money spent on them
Breed like ****
Dont smell thou.
So you can sell them well so many have then you have to give them away.


Quite frankly your right

What is the point in them.:w00t::santa:


OH you can feed them to the Carp in a pond well most fish actually

Can you set them free in the woods, or wouldnt they survive?
or maybe give them to a insect centre / schools / animal colleges.
