Mad Hornet Entomological Supplies was created to be a local supplier of equipment to entomologists, plant pathologists, nematologists and similar, in South Africa. This makes it easier to order, reduces the quantities required to buy each time, and provides quicker access. Some items are locally made in South Africa, while others which cannot be made here are imported.

The primary items provided by Mad Hornet Entomological Supplies can be viewed here. However, this is not an exhaustive list, so if something is required, which is not currently listed, please contact us, detailing what is required, and we will try to source it for you.

Each item displayed gives the option to choose quantity required, and add cart – however please note, the cart is a simple session cart, so if you leave the web page, the cart will empty.

When ready, simply go through to checkout, and an editable list will be displayed, complete your details and it will be sent to us, whereupon we will create a formal quotation for you, including delivery costs.
