This page is the home for care sheets for Isopods, also known as Sowbugs, Pillbugs, Roly polys and the Woodlice.  We are always adding new information so it sort of seems like it is half finished.

We are culturing 30 species of Isopods and will post videos, pictures and care sheets of each species so that you can properly care for and breed Isopods too.  We will also list what we have available as they become available.  Please join our exotic insect availability list.  We will send out updates when we offer some of the more exotic insects for sale.  We will offer these on a first come first served basis but we will offer them to our list first, before we post them as available online.

You can join our list below.  We will not spam you, sell your information or use it in any other way except to provide information and updates on our available species.  We may also update you when new species are added to our farm.
