Shipping back to normal

August 22nd UPDATE: Shipping is back to normal, Mondays and Wednesdays.  I have B. mendica, G. gonylodes, C. gemmatus, and P. wahlbergii nymphs available.  Bluebottle fly pupae will be available on Thursday but I have lots of housefly pupae available now.


July 31st UPDATE: *****Shipping delays***** Due to extreme heat here in my neck of the woods, shipping may be delayed until next week for orders containing anything live.  Temps are expected to reach record breaking temps of around 110F here.  The weather should cool down by Monday August 7th.  Shipping will resume then.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

June 25th UPDATE: Orchids and Wahlbergii will be posted today.  First group of orchids and wahlbergii will be shipped this Wed, the next group will be shipped Wed July 5th.  I will not be shipping on Monday the 3rd due to the holiday on Tuesday.  If you need the order shipped on a specific date then let me know.  Otherwise please be ok with either of those shipping dates when ordering.

June 4th UPDATE: More orchids expected by Wed (no pre-orders, sorry).  Ghosts shedding to L2.  Please note they will start shipping Wed, but many ghost mantid orders may not ship until Monday the 12th.  Mendica are sold out for now but more will be added this week once I get the current orders fulfilled and the new batch starts to shed to L2.  They have been doing better than expected shedding to L2 so I should have plenty.

My 29th UPDATE: Orchids, Mendica, and Giant Asian nymphs available.  If they are not available by the time you read this, don’t worry!  I should be able to add more this weekend or early next week.  Orchids sold out, please add yourself to the wait list to be notified when they are added again.  I expect more to be added this weekend or early next week.

May 27th UPDATE: Orchids are starting to shed to L2, mendica should not be far behind.  All out of violins for now but more hatching any day.  Giant Asian nymphs (membranacea) have also started hatching and should be up for sale on Wed the 31st for shipping on June 5th.  Once I have at least 15 orchids shed to L2 I will post them for sale with shipping starting June 5th.

B. mendica ooths have started to hatch.  I also expect more ghosts and Giant Asian nymphs to start hatching any day now as well.  First batch of orchids should be available possibly by this weekend or mid next week, then another batch a week or 2 after.  Wahlbergii in about 3-4 weeks.

I have added a wait list to out of stock products.  When you join the waitlist you will be automatically notified when the item is back in stock, assuming it is working correctly of course.  If the item is out of stock when you check, please add yourself to the list again.  I expect species like orchids and wahlbergii to sell out within 24-48 hours.
