The purpose of this site is to provide a meeting place for entomologists, insect collectors, insect hobbyists and craftspeople, traders, and dealers. All invertebrate ethusiasts welcome. This is a free site - no membership fees. Costs are covered by our advertisers and tips from users. Here's a summary of what you will find here:

The Insect Classifieds
First and foremost we are offering free, automated, electronic classified ads for insect specimen traders. Use your e-mail, fax, address, phone number, web site URL - or all of the above - as a means to contact your fellow traders. Users who want to place ads will get their own Classifieds user account (accounts are not required to view or reply to ads). Click on My Profile in the menu to see the link to register for an account. With a Classifieds user account you will have one password to edit all your of ads, plus you will be able to retrieve a forgotten username or password by e-mail. As a registered user you will be able to save a personal Checklist of ads you want to read later. The word limit for ads 500 - plenty of space to post long price lists. You can upload up to three photos with your ad using the Multimedia function. Max image size: 350x350 pixels in size. The Insect Classifieds has categories and subcategories (such as Livestock and Deadstock), making your searching very easy. You can also use the Search engine to query the ads for specific character strings. Since this is a FREE board, please respect others and limit your ads to 10 per day, maximum 50 current ads. This is so that everyone will have a chance for their ads to be seen in the first few pages of the browse mode. All ads must be approved by the administrator before they appear, so be patient with me - and have fun!
