    I live in England too. I buy all my pets apart from a house spider I'm keeping at the moment.

    Edit.

    I misunderstood your question. I buy and raise my livefood and buy enclosures for my pets.

    Just be careful what you catch and where you catch the food. For example your neighbours might spray insecticide and you could catch a fly etcetera that has been affected.

    What I used to do is leave doors open to let flies in. Then leave them for a few hours. If they where alive and well I'd use them.

    In the North West I've only ever seen the Zebra jumpers. They're quite small but beautiful.

    you always say to release male jumpers ways that?

    Because all they want to do is find a mate and breed when they're adults. For better to let them if they're native.
