Insect Collecting Supplies

Entomologist supplies: insect collecting & mounting for kids & pros.

Studying insects is many kids’ first foray into science education, specifically biology, and it's easy to see why! What they lack in size, bugs make up for in intriguing characteristics. Dragonflies zoom after mosquitoes. Ants can carry many times their own weight. Caterpillars turn into butterflies, and fireflies light up. Your student may want to collect insects to study their features up close!

We want to help you encourage young learners’ natural curiosity about bugs. Entomology, or the science of studying insects, is a branch of zoology. Here, you can shop for entomology supplies for insect collection, identification, and display - which also make great gifts for insect lovers. The best way to start is with a butterfly net for insect collecting! Spark their curiosity even further with insect mounting supplies like a spreading board and tweezers so they can show off their collection in a Riker mount storage box.

Armed with insect collecting supplies, you can peek into the world of insects. Discover life cycles, camouflage, locomotion, and more. Exploring and gift-giving is easy with complete insect collecting kits, butterfly nets, jarsspreading boards, books, display cases, pinning blocks—everything you need! You can even learn how to create an insect collection here.
