Why is The Bug Shed the cheapest place to buy dubia roaches online?

How do we keep our prices so low? It’s pretty simple, really. It boils down to three of our guiding principles as a business:

  1. Experience. One of The Bug Shed’s founding owners, Rich Beasley, has an extensive background in reptile breeding. Plus, he has a background in insect production dating back to the early 2000’s. And oh, yeah – he also has an MBA (Master of Business Administration). Rich has pulled from these three distinct strengths to devise a business model that allows us to be the cheapest place to buy dubia roaches out there.  
  2. Integrity. We don’t think it’s ethical to overcharge for our products just to make an extra buck. As fellow members of the reptile community, we want to support and uplift those who want to practice responsible reptile husbandry. With so many people struggling these days, the LAST thing we want to do is make a healthy meal for your beloved pet unattainable. In today’s market, feeding a bearded dragon should NOT cost $200, period.
  3. Inclusivity. If you love reptiles – we love you! We keep our prices low, so new hobbyists can easily get into the trade utilizing best practices from the get-go. There’s no cutting corners when it comes to reptile nutrition, as we previously addressed in our blog, Top 5 Signs You May Have a Malnourished Bearded Dragon. It is our honor to support you in raising your pets right.

How Do We Offer Such Low Prices and Stay in Business?

Efficiency is the name of the game. Everything we do in our breeding operation runs like clockwork, cutting out the risk for mishaps and oversights. Additionally, our fantastic team’s hard work, dedication, and input have allowed The Bug Shed to work out any kinks that would cause the cost of our operation to increase.

Our dedicated and knowledgeable staff helps us continually innovate and improve – which keeps costs down for you.

As an organization, innovation always reigns supreme. We value the suggestions and insights from everyone involved in our operation, from the owners to the employees, to YOU – the customer! We always welcome your suggestions and love to hear when we surpass your expectations.

Being open to feedback has allowed us to fine-tune our processes to be highly efficient. And if you’ve ever run a business, you know that the more efficient you are – the lower you can price your product.

Other ways we innovate to be the cheapest place to buy dubia roaches: 

  • We have developed our own proprietary bug-chow (which is regularly supplemented with fresh fruits and vegetables).
  • We have designed and built pieces of equipment that are exclusive to our breeding operation.

Ultimately, our ethos of experience, integrity, innovation, and inclusivity work in synergy to create an environment where our business thrives – even as it allows us to provide some of the most accessible prices out there.

Will We Ever Raise Our Prices?

We will only raise our prices to keep pace with any increases in the cost of doing business – never to make a higher profit.
