My name is Sharon Bach and I live in Brevard, NC. I am new at this so I am making mistakes! I ordered a couple of habitats and 25 dessert cups with dome lids. I poked holes in the tops of the cups with a needle. I put the nymphs in these because I was unprepared when the eggs hatched. I thought it would take longer! I wanted to separate them from each other as much as possible. I also ordered flightless fruit flies, but these arrived after they hatched. I find this hobby fascinating! I've wanted to do it for years. I have also ordered butterfly and moth pupae in the past. I had a butterfly collection as a child, but I would rather raise live creatures and photograph them than kill them. I hope to learn a lot before ordering any more egg cases!!! I have ordered them in the past and attached the egg cases to a branch in the garden. I don't think the nymphs survived as I never saw any adults after doing this. I will probably release some of these in the garden when they get bigger since they were sold as garden helper insects and not exotics.
