Bugsb4hugs have been breeding exotic insects for over 7 years and have grown to have a large customer following on Facebook due to our great customer service and reliability.

On the site, you can find care sheets to help you care for and breed bugs of your own. I add to this collection of knowledge regularly so if you cannot see the sheet you need make sure you keep checking.

The learning Zone

The learning zone is a new project I'm just starting to develop. In time I hope this will be a place where people of all ages can learn about insects and wildlife that can be found in the UK.

The online Store

In the store, you will find a large selection of live insects ranging from Katydids to Cockroaches and more recently I have started to include gifts that are mostly insect-related. Some of these are handcrafted by myself and they make the perfect gift for anyone interested in bugs.


I post all live insects with next day delivery, unfortunately, this means postage will be a little bit more expensive but I feel it's the only way to keep the insects in the best condition.

Gifts and insect eggs can be posted with first class, signed for delivery.

Because of the way WIX stores are set-up you need to make sure you have selected the correct delivery option at checkout.

I only post to the EU during summer months as it's unlikely the insects will survive the winter cold, no matter how much insulation I use. 

Finally, I'm a very busy person with looking after all the insects I keep, running a family home and educating my son I can only afford to post orders on Monday's and Wednesday's, meaning any orders after Wednesday at 10 am will be posted the following Monday.
