Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not last a week I received the larvae and right away set up the habitat according to the instructions. I left enough food for them for the weekend. I came back to work on Monday and they were all dead.I only got 6 live larvae anyway but they all died within three days of receiving. I cannot give a good rating in any area, unfortunately.
