We encourage sustainable insect sourcing. All our live insect products, unless otherwise stated, came from our UK/EU-based rearing facilities. We occasionally source low number of wild specimens, only if in agreement with wildlife protection laws. Afterwards we amplify them in our facilities to provide large amounts of healthy livestock.
We strongly disagree with any attempt to free any captive specimen into the wild, even if the specimen represents an autochthonous species. We consider the practise of captive breeding as disconnected from conservation or reintroduction programs. Such programs need to be handled only by specialists researchers or other professionists.
Witnessing the cycle of an insect in captivity enhances the curiosity towards the biology of such incredible animals. Getting in contact with the world of insect captive breeding could be the first step in building respect and awarenes for the environment.
We do not trade any CITES species.
We operate according to UK laws for live insect breeding and trade. Please make sure that ordering live insects products is not violating your country’s law. In case it is required, please be sure of fulfilling the proper paperwork for importation. Livestock sent to the USA requires USDA permits, feel free to contact us if you want further informations on the topic.
We do not ship towards Oceanian countries, Hawaii and Israel.
Livestock sent outside the EU, whilst we do our best to see that it arrives safely, and often refund or reship in case of postal delays, is sent at the BUYER’S RISK.
