ACTIAS: Come in and participate!



You are at the front door of ACTIAS, worlds greatest virtual community of people interested in insects. Search, observation, breeding and collecting of insects is our passion.

ACTIAS is more than an international discussion board, it is also the most activ trading place for insects and spiders. You find here every day offers of preserved species for collectors as well as living animals. Breders from many nations trade manly eggs, caterpillars, pupae and cocoons of butterflies, but also bugs and spiders.

A personal picture gallery, a calendar with all entomological events, a collection of recent publications with many breeding reports, a link list with other entomological websites and much more are inside ACTIAS, free of any charge of course.
Just come in to discuss, no need to register. However if you want to participate in our market place, you must register and provide correct name and address.

Many ACTIAS members - also from your area - would be delighted when you join our community!
