Welcome to Insectopia

We are open, and following UK government guidelines to reduce the risk of contracting or spreading the virus.

Due to summer holiday childcare and other family commitments we are operating with reduced working hours, however we are also deaing with a higher than usual volume of orders. Couriers remain exceptionally busy and parcels are often taking longer in transit. These factors mean that we can't get your goods to you quite as quickly as normal, so please bear with us as the delay is normally only a few extra days. There is unprecedented demand for moth-traps at the moment, and there will usually be around 1 week's additional delay on these. If you need something urgently please phone us before placing your order, to make sure we can get it to you in time.

Many thanks for your custom and patience. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We wish you, and all those who are dear to you, the best of health at this difficult time

Insect Traps, Sleeves and Cages

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 information charts, lighting rigs, and fine netting.

You can browse all our stocked products using the tabs at the top of the page. However if you need a specific size or design of netting cage that we don't offer as standard, we can help you out there too. We offer a bespoke design service (see tab above) and are happy to discuss your requirements.

For more information about the materials we use, please visit the 'Our Main Materials' section via 'About Us' in the bar to the left.

Is there a minimum order size?
No order is too big, or too small: we sell individual cages as well as bulk quantities. Our customers include beginners, enthusiasts, educationalists and professional researchers.
We also provide our goods to other entomological retailers.

Where do you ship to?
All of our products can be ordered online by customers in the UK or Europe. For deliveries outside the EU, or if you have have questions of any sort, please email us for help and information.

Do you have a physical shop I can visit?
No, we don't have retail premises. You can however book an appointment to visit our workshop to view any of our products, or discuss your requirements in person. For more information please go to the 'Face to Face' section via 'About Us' in the bar to the left.
