Insect Breeding Training Services

14 Years Experience Training Groups to Become Successful Insect Breeders

Our Comprehensive Online Learning Center can Train People Anywhere, Anytime!

We have 14 years experience breeding insects and training organizations how to breed insects successfully. We have trained zoos, wildlife rescue, pet owners and for human consumption.

We understand the importance of being able to provide a plentiful supply of cheap, fresh and readily available supply of live foods to your reptile or wildlife. After all we started breeding insects to help conserve an endangered species and to save money keeping reptiles (See our About Us page for more details).

We provide training for the following species: Yellow mealworm, super mealworm, crickets and cockroaches. We cover both small scale (hobbyist) and commercial production methods. Whilst we do breed insects for human human consumption (as stock feed to chickens, fish), for legal reasons we don’t provide advice on safety and health standards (but we do provide production advice).

To help reptile and wildlife enthusiast everywhere, we have a range of training services which will get your group on track to being successful insect breeders.  Below we outline 3 options that can help your group:

We started breeding Insects to feed endangered Quolls (marsupial carnivore) for Wildlife Rescue, and to feed our personal wildlife collection (reptiles, fish etc). See About Us for more details.

Training Options

1) Free Video Training, Discounted Books

We run a free online training session for a hour, and at the end people have the option to purchase our books at a 50% discount. (ie, a $40 cricket and mealworm book would be sold for $20). There is no obligation for the members to buy a book.

The session is videoed and can be sent to other members later, or posted onto social media. This helps groups obtain cost effective training and creates interactive content for the groups social media platforms.

2) Paid Training

Training can be undertaken on a hourly basis ($100/hr US). This is a good option for a business who wants to upskill their staff (i.e commercial insect breeders, zoos etc).

For this option we provide a 25% discount to members if they wish to purchase the books.

3) Affiliate Selling

Groups can sell our books to the public/members which helps them make money for the group.  For more details visit our Affiliate Selling section.
