Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do with the profit ?
profit will be used to support research trips by fellow entomologists

When will it be too cold for shipment ?
as long as day temperatures are not constantly around 0°C, it should be
safe to send phasmid eggs by mail. As the LTD-Method shows, phasmid
eggs are quite resilient

exchange is possible, against species which are of interest to me

Culture status of the species offered
some of the species offered are being bred for the first generation (F1)
only. Thus their culture status is be considered as not yet established

Will you offer these species again next year ?
I won't again breed most of the species offered above, as I have too
many new species to take care of

Why should we keep cultures pure according to their provenience ?
Life on our planet is amazingly diverse. And it does not come as a surprise
that there are more or less apparent differences (morphology, biology,
behaviour) between geographically well seperated populations. Even though
they belong to the same species according to contemporary taxonomic rules
and understanding

An opportunity to genuinely honor nature's astounding diversity is to keep
phasmid cultures pure according to their provenience. And who knows what
future in-depth studies will bring to the light of taxonomic knowledge, with
regard to subspecies, cryptic species, sibling species and the changing and
ever challenging understanding"what after all is a species  ?"

Isn't it unethical to sell eggs ?
for small-minded people it is indeed

any feedback, suggestions or complaints are very welcome
