We love bugs!

Bug Frenzy is a family business based in South Australia.  All our invertebrates are either captive bred, or sustainably and ethically sourced. We love bugs and want to  encourage that love in others, to educate and ensure that these wonderful creatures will be here for generations to come.  We stock a range of insects – from Scorpions to Stick Insects, Pet Spiders and Roaches and everything inbetween!

 Why keep insects as pets?

“Why would anyone keep insects or even pet spiders?” you might ask. Personally I love the beautiful, strange shape of insects, their colours, diversity, unusual behaviour and interesting life cycle. And luckily, many other people all over the world discover the fun in keeping insects as pets!

Invertebrates such as praying mantids and stick insects are fascinating and quite practical pets. They come in beautiful shapes and colours. It is fascinating to see the animals hunt, grow, molt, lay eggs and see their methods of camouflage and defenses.

An additional practical advantage, is their modest requirements for housing, care and food. Compared to common pets like cats, dogs, rodents and birds they require less time and space. They are also harmless, allergy-free and their food is less expensive than the food of most commons pets. All this makes them an increasingly popular group of animals to keep as pets, for young and old people alike!

    5 Star Review  One of the calmest but most inquisitive jumpers I've seen and he loves the warmth of my hand, literally lays on his belly and taps away : )
    Amazing creature with real personality.
    Loves chilling on top of his enclosure.
    Thanks Bug Frenzy!
