Please understand that this is just a hobby for us. We do not always have mantid nymphs available for sale as most of my extras are often traded for other species or supplies. Anything left over is then put up for sale. We do however often sell insects for TRUSTED breeders and friends. All conditions will apply to those orders and be backed by Mantidkingdom.com. All stock that belong to other breeders will be labeled as such, or stated in the description. We do our best to ship orders out as soon as possible after your order has been placed, but it may take up to 3 business days or more depending on weather and day of the week ordered.
We ship priority mail orders Monday through Wed so long as the order is placed by Tuesday 6pm. Next day shipping is sent Monday – Friday depending on your area. If you need your order delivered on a specific day, please let us know. Please be advised that most of our mantids are sold before they can even be sexed. We do our best to send you the gender you request, but do not take responsibility should your mantid not turn out to be the sex you requested unless:
1. It was specifically labelled in the listing as a specific sex or pair.
2. You emailed us and we guaranteed BEFORE the order was placed that we would send the requested sex.
We guarantee live arrival on next day air shipments only. You must notify us of DOA’s (dead on arrival) the day your shipment arrives. Should you receive any DOA’s, please take a few photos of the dead mantids and email them to me. We replace DOA’s free, but you will have to pay shipping charges. If that particular species is no longer available, we will offer to replace the DOA’s with another species or issue a refund. All of my Insects are healthy, free from injuries, diseases, plagues, and coodies. No guarantee of sound mental health.
We ship orders through USPS unless otherwise stated or requested. Priority shipping can be arranged, and although deaths are rare, live arrival is only guaranteed through next day shipping. Also note that next day shipping is 2 days in some areas. If you are in a 2 day area, then we can only ship to you Monday-Thursday.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
