MY STORY________________________________________
I am a conservation biologist who creates museum quality framed insects that hope to instill some sense of wonder about the natural world. After working in various entomology departments throughout the world, I decided to create my own educational insect displays in order to follow my passion, educate others, and showcase the amazing creatures I love.


IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING INSECT DISPLAYS?

► Is it sealed? Unsealed displays won’t last.
► Made with archival materials & papers? Non-archival papers break down like an old newspaper.
► Dangerous chemicals & fumigants used in preservation? We are completely natural.
► Come with educational material? What good is a display you don’t know anything about?

Bug Under Glass is the only insect retailer that offers all of these important qualities making it the only company to offer true museum quality displays.

Frequently asked questions about BugUnderGlass

Like all fine artwork, avoid direct sunlight and extreme humidity.
Yes, please contact me with your idea and I can give you a quote.
My insects come from sustainable conservation farms/ranches around the world. I do not sell rare, endangered or insects recognized as unsustainable (Dragonflies, Bats, rare beetles).
By linking environmental stewardship and economic development, butterfly farming positively impacts threatened habitats as well as human well-being. Currently used by conservation organizations, such as the Nature Conservancy and WWF, Butterfly farming helps save rainforest habitat by providing villagers an alternative income to agricultural farming and logging, which clears tropical forest. for more info Google "butterfly farming"
Since these displays are professionally made using UV blocking glass (so colors won't fade) and archival mounting boards - they can potentially last forever if treated with care. Most sellers are hobbyiest and DO NOT use UV glass or use proper materials - -and they will not last.
