Want to Learn Commercial Methods…We Are One of the Few Insect Breeders who Will Show you How

There is a large learning curve breeding Crickets and other insects which can end in disaster if you don’t have the right information. We’ll teach you how to: estimate how many insects you can produce, potential markets, things to consider, avoiding potential mistakes and Lots more.

For example, did you know that new solar technology has the potential to greatly reduce or remove one of the biggest expenses (heating- day and night, even in cool climates) and you can get around 4 times more profit from breeding for human consumption ?

14 Years of Sweat and Tears…Or Access the Best Information Instantly?

Not many people realize it initially, but breeding insects is a “school of hard knocks” industry. Those who do well, learn from their mistakes quickly and learn from others who have spent years trialing different things. We have made many mistakes over the years and toiled using high maintenance techniques. Then we learnt how to do it much quicker and with less effort. After 14 years you learn a few shortcuts and learn how to:

  • Build the right Tray systems that are durable and have the right balance between ventilation, removing toxic gas in summer, heat retention and preventing pest entry.
  • Manage pantry moths and other pests which nearly destroyed our business
  • Sort, pack and distribute to customers.
  • Create consistency through standardizing of feeding, maintenance and management.
  • Be efficient with your time and how to reduce or eliminate costs (e.g. solar heating, reduced maintenance, efficient design).
