Insectopia is a family-run business founded at the turn of the 21st century, we are based in North Warwickshire, England. 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.

If you're looking for an unusual present, why not check out our Butterfly and Moth Trap ranges? Humane trapping is a rewarding and interesting hobby for both adults and children, and is becoming increasingly popular.
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.

Christmas and New Year opening times
Christmas and the New Year are times to share with friends and family, and even internet businesses take some time off to eat, drink and be merry! Over the festive season 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 15 December we will be open and operating as usual
16 - 26 December : Closed
27 - 31 December : Skeleton service
1 January : Closed
2 - 8 January : Skeleton service
Normal service will be resumed from 9 January
