Your questions about insect fairs 

You regularly send us questions about insect markets. Here are some answers that may be of use to you. 

What are the biggest insect fairs in the world ?

The biggest insect fairs are Juvisy (Paris), Modena, Frankfurt and Tokyo fairs. These are major events you must attend if you can. These fairs are the best ones because they provide both paleartic and tropical materials and gather vendors from the whole world. Some people travel from other continents to attend them.

How can I sell specimens in these fairs ?

You have to contact directly the fair organizer. You will find his contact by clicking on his website that we indicate in the above list. 

Can I take the insects I buy at this fair back home? 

As each country has its own legislation concerning the transport of insects (live or dead), InsectNet leaves it to you to check this with the authorities in your country and those in the country of the exchange. 

Are there any live insects in these fairs ?

Yes there are. You'll not only see live insect demonstrations, but also find suppliers of live insects for terrarium breeding.
