About Us

We're insect keeping enthusiasts just like you. We have our own private colonies and love watching and observing the unique behaviors of all types of ants.
When we first started keeping ants we quickly became frustrated by the lack of information available online. 
Not only was it hard to find information about keeping ants, finding products from the multiple manufactures around the world was tedious.
What started out as a hobby quickly grew into a family run company.
WaKooshi began in 2014. Frustrated with the lack of online eCommerce options within the insect keeping hobby, we started life selling products via our eBay store but found that limited our worldwide reach. We decided it was time to launch an online store that stocked insects and products from around the world as well as our own range of products.
The ant keeping industry is in it's infancy. Currently only a handful of manufacturers around the world exist. A lot of these manufacturers do not offer Live Arrival Guarantees or have a faulty goods return policy. We do!
You have peace of mind that if something doesn't go right, we'll make it right. 
Not only do we guarantee our live ants but we also offer a full refund for damaged or faulty goods. 
We also stock all of the products you see on our site. No more waiting for weeks whilst the small boutique manufacturer makes your formicarium. If it's on our site, then it's available for immediate delivery.
We have big plans for the future. Fueled by our passion we're already working on more ranges of products launching shortly. We aim to be the 'go to' store for all of your ant keeping needs in the future.
By supporting us, you will be supporting the hobby,
Many thanks
