 I have kept a variety of insects over the years.

Currently, I  have two White Tree Frogs, 3 Giant Asian Mantis, Chinese Moon Moth Larvae and North American Bullseye Moth larvae, Leaf Insects, and Giant Flower Beetle Larvae. 


In addition to this, I studied at Plumpton College for two years, gaining a Level 3 Diploma in Animal management.

1. Animal Welfare

2. Animal Health

3. Animal Nutrition 

4. Animal Nursing

5. Animal Behaviour

6. Animal Biology

7. Animal Handling

8. Animal Transport

In addition to this I am studying Entomology.  I also have volunteered at Southdown Veterinary Practice in Southwick, RSPCA, Raystede, and Drusillas so have plenty of experience working in animal practices. 


The Insect Nerd was created for ... everyone. Insect and animal lovers. Families, children, and anyone wanting to take up the wonderful hobby which is Entomology. In time, I will be selling insect eggs and maybe some insects. It's a small, new business, but it will thrive.  It's a family-run website, run by me for others. 





1. To promote good animal care and welfare. 

2. To educate others on the importance of insects

3. To make others aware of insects needs, and how they need to be cared for just like other animals.
