General care

Every species of insects requires specific care, depending on its natural habitat. To find out what care the species of your choice really needs, please check out the caresheet for that species.

Of course all insects need roughly the same kind of care; they need an enclosure, warmth, humidity and food. The “General Care” pages of this website are designed to introduce you to the art of creating the perfect circumstances for your insect pets.
