I thought it would be best if I gave some information myself.
It's true we are closing our webshop and selling our entire stock.
The main reason is that for the last couple of years we have been working almost 24/7 and although I love working with insects, it was time for something new My girlfriend and I have been working on a new project for a while now (not butterfly related) and we decided it was time to switch over full-time. We'll be able to work from practically anywhere so this will give us the opportunity to combine travel, work and of course collect Hepialidae. We have actually been looking forward to this for some time and are really happy to finally taking the next step.
Before this happens we still have to sell our remaining stock!
I also want to take the chance to thank everyone. We received so many wonderful reactions from people since we annouced that we will be stopping. It's always nice to hear your work is appreciated.
Feel free to contact me if anyone has any questions. Best regards, Benny
This is very sad, but understandable news. Benny is one of the few people I have actually bought specimens from in the past few years due to my dire financial situation. If I had some money I would have bought a lot of material from him, as the quality and service was excellent.
Thanks for explaining the reasons for this decision, and best wishes for success in whatever new venture you are embarking on.
