Oak Flake Soil Cup


3 in stock


This small quantity oak flake soil cup is a food cup and you CANNOT select “free substrate shipping” at checkout, sorry. If you want the (larger) substrate version of this please order it from the substrates section of this website. So this product must be added to your cart where you are checking out with either the $14 non-living shipping option or the “express mail for living shipments” option. If you fail to read these instructions and request a refund instead of paying the shipping costs, I will refund you minus paypal fees that were charged to me.

One small deli cup with 3.75 ounces of 100% medium to soft decay oak wood flakes. This is the premium grade product we use to raise all our rhino, stag and Chrysina larvae before offering them up for sale. It is also eaten by many other kinds of arthropods including millipedes and isopods. It consists of finely ground fermented oak wood mixed with finely ground wild collected oak wood. It is freeze-treated. $3 per cup. You are welcome to drop your larvae directly into these cups. It is a great sized “home” for most first and early second instar larvae. If you do plan to put a larva directly into the cup you will want to punch a couple holes into the lid, but from the inside-out. I typically use a thumb tack and of course it creates sharp and abrasive little nubs as it exits the plastic. Better that those are on the outside of the cup than on the inside where your pet might rub against them.

This same product is also available in a larger amount in the related products link, below.
