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.

Our aim is to provide a wide range of competitively priced, high quality, effective products for those studying or rearing butterflies and other insects; including beginners, enthusiasts, educationalists and professional researchers.

As well as traps and cages we also sell information charts, lighting rigs, and fine netting. If you need a specific size or design of netting cage that we don't offer as standard, please email us. We offer a bespoke design service (see tab above) and are happy to discuss your requirements.
