Who are you?
Insectopia is a family-run British business founded at the turn of the 21st century. Our cages and traps are all individually designed and crafted by us here in the UK.
What do you sell?
We make and sell a wide range of competitively priced, high quality, effective products for those studying or rearing butterflies and other insects. As well as traps and cages we also sell lighting rigs and fine netting.
