Markets for Breeding Insects

We Will Show you How to Profit From the Many Insect Breeding Markets that are Rapidly Growing

In the Past People were Limited to Breeding Insects to the Pet Trade or Zoos…. Not Anymore! 

There are many new and emerging markets including human consumption or protein supplementation for farm animals (chickens, pigs, aquaculture etc.).

We have been producing insects and trained people how to breed feeder insects for more than 1 years. Over this time, we have learnt how to find both mainstream and niche markets…. Some may not seem obvious at first.

Breeding feeder insects for profit is not just about finding the right market… it is also about breeding the right species.As we discuss below, each market is unique and may require different species. This is important as commonly bred species can sometimes be the least profitable!

The most important thing is don’t assume anything. Ask your clients what they want before breeding a species you “think” they want.Below are some articles to discuss what each Key Market wants and potential money making opportunities:

For more than a decade we have developed the world’s most comprehensive training resources to breed insects for profit which includes: Books, Videos, Zoom video Sessions and One-on-One Consultations or Partnerships.

No matter how small or large your operations we have methods and information to get you on the right track. Our systems have been used around the world to not only set up new businesses but also to improve the efficiency of existing insect farms.

New Low Maintenance Insect Breeding Methods

We have new methods which have slashed maintenance and are very productive. Here are some advantages.

  • Needs no active management (No spraying, no rotating crickets etc);
  • Collects waste for you;
  • Only requires one container  (not 7 like conventional methods);
  • Food/ water dispensers  which attends to your insects for 7-14 days or more;
  • Requires only 3 minutes maintenance every 7-14 days (less time than standing in line at the pet store)
  • Each 20 Gallon (70 L) breeding container can produce one container of adult crickets from a pet store each week.
  • The average 2 child family can produce enough scrap vegies to feed 4 breeding containers, which is enough crickets to feed 4-12 bearded dragons (depending of feeding rate). That’s around $1400/year (Au) you are currently throwing away!!.
