Water Boatman Large


5 in stock


Water boatmen live in freshwater and suck the juices from plants, algae and decaying vegetation of various kinds. Algae typically grows in our various aquatic insect tanks and these insects do well in such tanks.

This listing is for a larger species measuring around 1 cm. $3 each.

We recommend that you choose overnight shipping. We ship them in moist sphagnum moss. Because they breathe air through their abdomens, water quality isn’t the same issue for them as it is with fish, etc.

Do not release the adults into your backyard pond features, etc. They do not belong in your local ecosystem and may cause harm to your native balance of species.

More info and photos of this family of insects can be found at Bugguide.net
