B&S Entomological Services - The Net Suppliers

B&S Entomological Services (formerly Marris House Nets) is owned and run by Shirley and Brian Nelson who are both professional biologists. Our philosophy remains the same as Marris House - quality products at affordable prices. We aim to give you a personal service and are happy to discuss your particular requirements.

We supply a variety of specialist traps and nets, including Malaise traps, hand nets and sweep nets. Our products are designed for use by biologists and naturalists interested in insects - Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths), Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies), hoverflies and other Diptera, Hyemnoptera (ants, bees and wasps). They are also suitable for bats. They are widely used by field naturalists, environmental consultants and professional researchers in universities and research organisations worldwide. All our nets are made to a high, consistent standard and they are, in the opinion of many of our customers, the best available.


We welcome orders from anywhere! Small quantities (5 or fewer) of our most popular items can be purchased via our website. For items not available through the online shop and larger orders (more than 5) please contact us by email, phone or fax. We accept official orders from government departments, local authorities, educational establishments or public service bodies. Your official order can be sent by post, fax or email.

Online Shop

Our online shop is available to UK and EU customers for ordering small quantities of our most popular items (5 or fewer). We happily will supply goods to customers elsewhere but because of the complications of tax and postage, ask that you contact us with your order. The Online shop is linked to Paypal; you do not need to be registered with Paypal to use the shop. Paypal is simply the payment mechanism we use. It gives you the buyer and we the sellers jointly the protection of Paypal's systems in the unlikely event of a problem.
