is an Entomologist?
A zoologist, or bugologist (Bug-hunter), is a
person that studies insects and versed in
entomology. Entomologists dig up all kinds of
information on insects, like arachnids and myriapods
because these six-legged critters affect just
about every aspect of agriculture. It's important
that entomologists know all they can about the
good, the bad, and the ugly insects. Where does
this insects live, what does it eat,
and how will they survive the winter? In
agriculture, many insects are considered bad
guys, like boll weevils and corn earworms, while
others, like bees, are critical for making
honey and moving pollen from one
flower to another so that fruits and flowers
can be germinated. Entomologists also glean knowledge
from fossil records and from insects that got
trapped in amber, though the possibility
of extracting their DNA is remote.
What is a Lepidopterist?
lepidopterist is a person who catches, collects,
or simply studies lepidopterans, members of
an order comprised of butterflies, skippers,
and moths. An entomologist, lepidopterist and
arachnologist are all collectors of insects.
If you are a insect or arthropod collector you
will love our framed insects! We offer a wonderful

What is a Arachnologist?
Arachnology is the study of spiders and other
Arachnida. An Arachnologist is a scientist
that studies the life cycles, behavior, ecology,
and/or diversity of arachnids (spiders and
their relatives) as a job or intense hobby.
Arachnologists collect arachnid specimens
for laboratory study and public demonstrations,
like in the classroom. Now you can be your
own Arachnologist every time you collect
a variety of framed spiders and scorpions.
