    I dont know, the jumpies are just so awesome! i love them! they are good pest control too, if your looking at things like spider mites and other things like lacewings, cause they dont build webs, they lie in ambush and pounce! RAWR!

    Well I haven't seen it since the original post and I've watered the plants since them. I'm a little timid handling them still, but so far so good
