Adopt a Bug

Is there an insect you just can't get enough of? Try adopting!

Did you know that Entomica now features a bug adoption program? You can help keep our buggy friends fed and happy through the symbolic adoption of one or more animals. With over a dozen species to choose from, you’ll be sure to find one who will be perfect for you!


Our bug adoption program features a framed picture of your adopted bug, a custom name for your bug (if applicable), a certificate of adoption, monthly updates about your bug for six months, and a small thank you card.
