Bugger's roots date back to 2017, when the company's founder, Matias, a beetle enthusiast in his spare time, started importing the most common entomological products under his then business name and selling them on international trading platforms. Initially, the business was modest and hobby-like, but over time demand grew and customers began to ask for a wider range and new products.
The vision for an own modern and experiential entomological shop evolved, and in 2020 the business name was changed to Bugger, name that fits every bug enthusiast's mouth. The range of products was expanded and the first web shop pages were launched in spring 2021. Despite their obtuseness and clumsiness, they managed to attract enthusiasts to shop online faster than we could have prepared. However, the first official Bugger parcels were shipped out quite honourably and have not been returned.
Now the flow of orders and parcels is getting used to and the website is looking a little better every day. Since November 2021, Bugger has also gained a whole new momentum, as Matias, who has completed his studies, was finally able to focus on the project full-time. This time, packaging tape has been ordered in time for stock.
Founder of Bugger
Matias (26) from Tampere has been a nature lover since he was a toddler. He spends his summers camping and observing insects and winters studying beetles under a microscope. Bugger was Matias' own idea, which started to develop during his university studies. Now that he has finished his studies, he can concentrate fully on the project.
