Rated 4 out of 5 by from Remember to order early! I thought ordering 10 days ahead of time would be fine. There was some delay in getting them off though and they only got here just in the nick of time ( a few hours before the lab ). Maybe they are field collected. Next time, I'm going to order at least 2 weeks ahead if not more. They are hardy little critters and are easy to keep happy with potato pieces and a mister for a long time. They were in excellent shape and full size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to culture The materials in the kit are well suited for culturing isopods and keeping the culture going is very easy. I like having tiny baby isopods consistently available for microscope work and I like having the adult isopods on hand for behavioral studies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love Isopods! What a cool set up! I usually go out and pick up rolly pollies in the back yard, but this year I couldn't find any (drought). The kit contains everything you need to maintain a community. I even have baby isopods running around. Very cool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pill Bug Experiment Set I think this is really helpful to me because my friend and I needed an idea for a science fair so we looked at a site and saw a pill bug experiment with this link to order the bugs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Decomposers!! I am a fourth grade teacher and I use this kit to teach students about decomposers. It comes with evetthing you need to study these unique decomposers. I used the booklet which provided some lab experiments that the students could do. Something to watch out for, don't over feed otherwise it creates problems. The students learned a lot about decomposition and the role of pill bugs. It is a low maintence kit that the students enjoy.
