Rules for Posting in the Classifieds Section

Rules for Posting in the Classifieds Section

Note: The transportation of live insects is heavily regulated in some Countries by laws, backed with large fines for those who break them.
If you are shipping live insects, check the laws or ask. 

Do NOT ask someone to ship live insects to you if it is illegal.

If you are selling your post should contain:

  • Your location (in the thread and in the title)
  • Whether you are willing to ship - if it is live insects, include the shipping rules for your area
  • A price


If you are looking to buy your post should contain:

  • What you are looking for
  • Your location
  • Whether you are willing to pay for shipping


Once your item is sold, please change your title heading so people know it is sold.

Add the word "SOLD" to the front of your title heading and in your thread so people know it is sold.


Hints for selling things faster:

  • Take a picture! (Then learn to post a picture! Photobucket and other sites are good.) A bad photo can still beat the best description.
  • Describe all advantages of the item (clearer glass, very active colony, highly absorbent...)
  • Be reasonable with your asking price
  • If offering several items, be sure to edit your original post to say what is still available, and what is not.


We are all here to enjoy the hobby, so let's keep it honest and friendly
