Specialist Manufacturer of Netting
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.

SCHOOL SUMMER HOLIDAYS
It's that time of year again, when we juggle business with family over the school holidays. Over the summer we will therefore be closed at certain times, and offer a skeleton service at others.
A SKELETON SERVICE means that we will endeavour to deal with your enquiry or order as soon as possible, but delays in our usual prompt service may be experienced. At other times we will be CLOSED. During closures we will be unable to process your order, or deal with any email or phone enquiries. However if you place an order or contact us via email, this will still register on our system and will be processed when we re-open.
Up to 5th July we will be open and operating as usual
6 July - 21 July : Skeleton service
22 July - 26 July : Normal service
27 July - 2 August : Skeleton service
3 August - 11 August : Closed
12 August - 16 August : Normal service
17 August - 29 August : Closed
30 August - 3 September : Skeleton service
4th September onwards : Normal service
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
