Absolutely incredible selection of inverts. I needed some springtails, and most places you’re lucky if they can even give you a common, let alone Latin, name for the springtails they carry. Hisserdude, on the other hand, had a half dozen varieties and the hardest part of purchasing from him was narrowing down which species to try out in my vivariums.

On top of the great selection, every other part of the transaction was easy and pleasant. Highly recommend Hisserdude to anyone on the board looking for roaches, springtails, etc.

Will purchase from again in the future.

Pros
  • Great communication, decent packaging, nice animals.
Cons
  • Would prefer different 'bedding' material for lack of better wording, purer stock, and prob just a tad better packaging.
Just recently worked with this person. He's awesome but he has a seriously bad habit of sending me roaches in the mail. I know, right? What kind of friend sends his pal roaches?
😕
Jokes aside, he's super great to work with, don't hesitate, great animals, decent packaging, chillax dude.

Clarification on the cons:
1. Better bedding means they come in paper towels which I mentioned to him. I got some springtails and micro roaches and they were a bit of a pain to separate from the towel as they were hard to see (whitish on white) and super tiny and I definitely don't want paper towel in the container. I just ended up giving up and putting the paper towel in there just to be sure all the animals do get in there and not the trashcan and try to figure it out the next day, hoping the animals transfer to the substrate below. Like if it was just moss, I can kinda use moss so that can stay but paper towel, can't.

2. Purer stock for me, means I suck at finding better wording, but it means when I buy springtails, it would be preferable that I only get springtails. I got some soil mites which, based on reading, SHOULD be safe for my Ts and do the same job as the springtails, but I'd prefer to just have springtails, them and only them so I can have MORE control (impossible to have full, I understand that) of what I introduce into an enclosure. Also goes with number 1, the tiny mites stick to the paper towel, the springtails stick to the paper towel, they're both tiny as f especially the babies, separating them was time consuming and I gave up and just put the towel in there. So part of me adores the mites but was not prepared to have them along and in this case, don't have as much of a choice.

3. I'm definitely no pro at packaging and this guy obviously ships tons of animals but my input would be a styrofoam lining, holes punched thru, to better protect from the 3-4 day priority mail ship. He uses newspaper and moist paper towel which is fine, but I feel a slight improvement would be appreciated by both buyer and animals. Again, I could be wrong, he is the guy with the actual experience. I did see his packaging and can tell he puts mind and effort into it, this guy's definitely no slouch and if I'm wrong, please excuse me.
Good transaction and communicated well

Pros
  • Good communication, Good care sheet, Good transaction
Cons
  • If I had to say anything it would be shipping as I like to receive overnight and they ship priority only but all came in well
Was interested in the click beetle larvae. Seller was on top of communication here on AB and responded quickly. I touched base as it was getting hot here and I am not use to anything live taking 3-5 days in transit. He assured me this is typical and true to his word they arrived alive and he even included an extra. Overall very satisfied and make sure you have good eyes to see these little ones when unpacking.

I was able to catch an excellent deal on a bunch of darkling beetle species that I had been eyeing for quite a while. If the price wasn't already a steal, the massive amount of beetles and larvae received made things even that much better! There was a substantial amount of losses due to a lack of oxygen with one of the species, but even considering that, there was a great overall survival rate as the hundreds of other individuals received were pretty much all in excellent condition. :)
There's no question that I'll be doing business with Tristan again and can't wait for whenever that may be; thanks again man! :)

Purchased some roaches and isopods from Hisserdude. Everything received was way better than advertised as far as quantity. Cultures were super clean, no mites. Pricing was very reasonable, communication was swift, and packing was solid. Would definitely recommend this seller!
