Information about us...

Our site is best viewed on a 17" monitor at 800 x 600 resolution and at least Hi Colour (thousands of colours) or True Colour (millions of colours) to fully appreciate the natural beauty of the insects we have photographed. 

The Insect Company has now been in operation for more than fifteen years and during this time we have built up a very comprehensive range of both common and rare material from around the world. This means we may be able to fulfil your most complicated requirements from our worldwide network of collectors. Being one of the world's largest supplier's of insects, means we are able to supply individual specimens to private collectors as well as bulk orders at wholesale prices to dealers and for display and artwork purposes. Please just ask us for our wholesale and bulk Insect Lists. 

We are trying to provide  an excellent variety of insects at a very competitive price. We also give you the opportunity to view many of the species in full colour for identification. Not many people these days can afford to accumulate enough reference books to identify all the insects that are available, and although we are still a long way away from showing everything, we already have more than 1,600 life-size, full colour reference photographs in place, and we are adding more new photo's each month. You can view the available photographs by going to any of the Insect lists and clicking on the camera icon.
