What Does "Entomon" Mean?
Entomon is the Greek word
for "insects" and its also the name
of our web site. Since we offer over
400 different insect themed items we thought
it was only appropriate. Some of our insect products
are sold live, others are preserved and framed,
and one of the most innovative insect products
to come along in recent years is our electronic
moving species of American
butterflies, moths, and dragonflies that were
designed to look and move exactly like the species
Does Buying Framed Insects Endanger their
It is our company policy not to trade in endangered, rare or otherwise protected
wildlife. We source our insect supplies using only abundant species from
Government regulated ranching cooperatives covering over 15 different countries
worldwide. Far from endangering insects, your purchase actually helps to conserve
the land that they need to survive by making it profitable as an insect habitat
instead of the same land being used as farmland or for wood cutting
leading to deforestation.
What is Included with Each Framed Insect?
Every framed insect is placed in either a wood frame or an imitation wood
frame made of recycled materials. The fronts, and often the backs, are made of
transparent glass or acrylic - where specified. Each insect is inspected for
quality and is guaranteed to be in good condition. Most of the framed insects
also come with a map showing you which part of the world they originated.
Do You Offer Gift Cards?
A gift card comes FREE with every order you make with our company. Once your
order is placed a window will appear that will allow you to customize your FREE
gift card. You can choose between numerous card themes covering every conceivable
occasion and you can also send a unique message on this card to that special
someone and it will be included inside the box so that when the gift arrives
the recipient will be double surprised!
Do Real Butterfly Wings Fade?
If real butterfly wings are placed in direct
sunlight for extended periods of time their bright
colorations will tend to dull a little. The good
news is that if you leave your framed butterflies
out of direct sunlight their colors with stay
vibrant almost indefinitely! Take care of your
framed butterflies and there is no reason that
they couldn't stay in your family for generations
