Insects are truly amazing creatures. Their variety and shear numbers are daunting and almost unimaginable. Over 100,000 different and unique species of insects are known to live in North America north of Mexico. That is one of the reasons collecting insects is so fun and educational. School insect collections are often a requirement of many high school and college classes. 4-H insect collections are usually required for 4H entomology as well as science Olympiad. Many amateur entomologists have large and impressive Bug Collections consisting of a variety of dried insect specimens. This website focuses on insects that can be collected in your own backyard. We carry only dried insect specimens found in North America north of Mexico. We also offer an overnight option. We sell only dead specimens and we do not ship outside the USA.
