How do we supply leeches?

We supply both wild-caught and farm-bred leeches depending on the season. Leeches are cultivated twice a year, as commonly known. Leeches prefer to stay underneath the terrain during cold weather conditions. Therefore, it is very hard to accumulate them during the winter season. Leeches are classified as endangered animals. It is very important to respect the periods of their cultivation and avoid catching any.

Leeches are mostly fed with frogs and fishes. Which makes it difficult to grow in farms and produce the same amount of enzymes as the wild-caught ones contain.

Most farms can cultivate leeches in farms and laboratories. However, it is a struggle to raise them. Newborns are not very useful for application.

We classify leeches in 4 different sizes. Baby leeches, small sized leeches, medium-sized leeches and jumbo-sized leeches.

Baby leeches are used on very sensitive spots as small sizes. Medium-size leeches are the most common and preferred size as they have a wide-range of use areas.

Jumbo size leeches are not preferred for human consumption and mostly being used for cultivation.

Important Notice: We only ship unfed and sterilized leeches. All leeches are sterilized and quarantined for at least 3 months to make sure they are fully detoxicated and sterile.
