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.
