Hi, my name is Rachel and I’m proud to say that I own Pet Pedes and Pods! If you’ve ever seen us at a show, you’ve met me and my husband Travis (who claims to be “the muscle” but enjoys these little critters *almost* as much as I do) and listened to me nerd out about our animals and bioactive enclosures.

I grew up with reptiles and amphibians and always stop to flip over interesting looking rocks and bark in hopes of finding cool bugs. I’m a hobbyist first, so I keep things that I enjoy and hope to pass that passion and knowledge along to you in the process.

Please feel free to contact me and ask your questions. I’m happy to help you figure out all your options and the best clean up crews, supplies, or vivariums to keep your pets happy and healthy. I’m never here to sell you something you don’t need – if there’s an option for you and your pets that meets your budget, I’m here to help you find it.

We’re a small business located in Portage County in Northeast Ohio. All our animals are bred right here in house (literally, in our house). When you support Pet Pedes and Pods, you support a local business, and we can’t thank you enough for that!

Pet Pedes and Pods is your source for Isopods, Springtails, Millipedes, Arachnids, Pet Bugs, and Bioactive Clean Up Crews for sale in Ohio, with shipping available to the continental US. See our “Shipping and LAG” page for more info on live animal shipping. Visit our “Upcoming Shows” page for our show and expo schedule.
