Hi, I’m Andrew! I’ve been interested in bugs since I was 4 years old. I am now 16, and still have a passion for bugs and love to teach others about them. Most bugs are looked at as scary, disgusting or dangerous but I’m here to help you understand why they are so important to our ecosystems and not as scary as you might think.

Over the years I have acquired various species of insects, arachnids and other bugs. I currently have 13 Tarantulas, 23 scorpions, a Ball Python, and much more. Some of my pets are wild caught, and I may have different species seasonally, including Praying Mantises, Stick Insects, and various spider species.

I live in Bradenton, Florida, but I travel with my family to places like California and Arizona, allowing me to meet new people and collect bugs from all over the U.S.A.

*Notice I use the term “bug” very loosely. Technically “bugs” are insects that are members of the order Hemiptera, or True Bugs, which include Stink Bugs, Assassin Bugs, and Cicadas.
