 Due to the overwhelming number of people shopping online and social distancing regulations cutting our staffing by 33%, we are currently instituting a $40 mininum order (not including shipping) and certain products you have come to depend on are not available to us from our own suppliers, or too time consuming to produce (like some substrates). This message revised on 5/15 at 5PM PSTDuring this time communication may be slow and orders may be delayed either by us or by the Postal Service. Please take this into account as you place your order, and as we all deal with current events. We do not ship Thursday through Sunday and so all orders placed Wednesday to Sunday will ship the following week. We ship on Mon, Tue & Wed on the basis of weather, when you place the order, and our workflow. You will see a tracking number via the email address (sometimes your paypal address) when we ship.

Thank you for visiting the number one resource for live, pet bugs in the United States. Through active participation in a hobby we love, we are grateful to have had the opportunity to support our nation's museums, universities and various institutions that also dedicate themselves to fostering an appreciation for insects and other arthropods. We do not import or export, but we are happy to attempt to direct you towards what you are looking for. We are bug generalists, interested in everything from springtails and pseudoscorpions on up to goliath birdeater tarantulas and native rhino beetles.

Wanna be "in the know?" Click Follow us on Instagram. We post fresh photo and video content on a daily basis! 

You may be considering the purchase of live animals, not lifeless trinkets. Please review our Terms and Conditions page before you place your order. Shipping days are discussed there. Shipping service types and which ones to choose for your living shipment are discussed there.

The shopping cart accepts all major credit cards, as well as PayPal. Please Contact Us if you have any questions.

Livestock trades are always considered, and we buy a lot of live and dried bugs too!
