About us...

After graduating in biology from Cambridge University, Dorothy Floyd set up this mail-order business in 1985, selling Indian stick insects which she had reared, and aluminium insect cages which she designed and made in Cheshire.

As the business expanded, it relocated to an industrial unit in Leicestershire, and has now moved again, this time to Cambridgeshire.

Small-Life Supplies still follows its core principles. So a lot of care and expertise goes into the design of the cages. These cages are then manufactured in the UK and dispatched to customers nationwide and worldwide. All our stick insects are captive bred in our cages in the UK. The stick insects are used to being handled. We only breed the harmless species and guarantee live arrival. These are delivered nationwide.

Insect husbandry advice is freely given, via our Ask Professor Phasmid page, and more information is in Dorothy Floyd's best-selling book "Keeping Stick Insects"
