Our Insect Breeding Services 

Insect breeding is integrated in our biological testing services and is an important prerequisite in providing animals which are traceable. When breeding (invasive) species we always keep quality of the breeding colony in mind. We breed sufficient amounts of different types of insects to ensure that orders can be fulfilled in a timely manner.
