Welcome to DeadInsects.Net
We offer dead insects to students for school projects and collection assignments, to educators for use in their classrooms, and to the general hobbyist putting together dried arthropod displays for their personal enjoyment. We include free pins with all orders to match the number of insects you order, even when the specimens you ordered are too small for pins. In these cases we also include small mounting triangles where you glue the small insect specimen to the paper triangle and then place the pin through the paper triangle. Some of our smaller, softer-bodied specimens ship in 70% ethanol in small vials. Most of our material is North American in origin, and only a fraction of it is actually listed on the website. We entertain all questions and enjoy custom projects.

Insects are the most diverse class of animals on the planet. That's what makes them so interesting. They come in seemingly endless shapes, sizes and colors. Eighty percent of living animals on the planet are in the Arthropod phylum, with insects being the largest Class. It is for this reason that no matter how many times we go into our own backyards, we continue to see things we've never seen before. This website is a simple extension of a subject that fascinates us. We have found that the best way to learn about the diversity of life on the planet is to jump right in and interact with as many people on as many levels as possible. We strive to be accurate with our identifications and we are passionate hobbyists, but we are not trained taxonomists. We appreciate every correction that you might suggest to help us in building a better resource for educators and their students. Our initial focus with this site is to provide dried insects and other invertebrates, and products related to their preservation and display.
We invite you to browse through our store and shop with confidence. Create an account with us if you like, or shop as a guest. Either way, your shopping cart will be active until you leave the store.
