Sand Pits Sand Pit - with sand included
Some stick insects bury their eggs in sand and these varieties need the Sand Pit. Such varieties include: New Guinea (Eurycantha calcarata), Malaysian (Heteropteryx dilatata), Sabah (Aretaon asperrimus), Giant Sabah (Trachyaretaon brueckneri).

Place the Sand Pit by the mesh side of the cage and sieve the contents once a week. The eggs can be stored in a HUA Pot. The sieved sand should be tipped back into the square plastic container and returned to the cage.

Please note that stick insects which bury their eggs in sand are more thirsty than other species and so require a shallow Water Dish filled with cold tap water. Water Dishes are available too.

Sand Pit ... £2.99.
Metal Sieve...£3.99.

Water Dish...83p.

If ordering with other items, total delivery is capped at £9.95. If you just want the Sand Pit , Metal Sieve and Water Dish, delivery is £3.95.
