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.
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.
