Was buying and expecting dead ones but they are all living and moving.

My springtails arrived dead, I did everything the instructions said, I was going to use the container they came in so I just put them on a shelf in my room, I opened it up a month later to finally throw the dirt out and to my surprise there was thousands of springtails:).
green quote
ALMOST killed them with to much mold making to much co2 - update it's been a month and now I have 9 cultures 300 ea I bought the seeding culture with 50-200 spring tails looked like hardly any but now I have plenty and I accidentally sprouted cracked corn.

We live in Florida where it’s extremely hot and a lot of the little guys were dead when we got them due to the heat.

If you live where it’s hot plan on picking them up at the post office if that’s an option.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I highly recommend this pet product based on manufacturer ratings and comparison with its similar products. Let's go over the reasons why buying this pet product now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Critters Direct has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

2. Sadly, this is your only option

3. This pet product has positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This pet product has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this pet product more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

4. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed from April 29, 2020 to May 20, 2020, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this pet product was $19.99, and the lowest price point was $17.99. The current price is nearly the highest it has ever been. If the best price is what you're after, now isn't exactly a good time to buy this pet product.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, the price tends to stay more or less the same. Not a lot of price movement is expected, but the price could still move in either direction by a smidge.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $20.07 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

5. Make sure Critters Direct is a brand you can trust

Critters Direct doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other pet product brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

That's it! I hope you learned enough about this product to make a purchase decision now. You can always ask me about anything via the bird button on the bottom right corner. Thanks for reading — I'm going to add more analyses on this review, so stay tuned!
