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.


► 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.
