Live Insects Shipping Policy
Reminder: We do not guarantee delivery dates on any order - USPS Priority provides estimated, but not guaranteed, delivery dates.
We guarantee live arrival of feeder insects if the below steps are met:
- You had the package held for pickup at your post office, or brought the package in promptly (within 1hr) upon delivery.
- If your insect shipment arrives dead, send us photos right away along with the time your package was picked up / brought inside. We'll reference this with the USPS tracking data to qualify you for a replacement.
If your order includes live insects, here's how it works!
- We pull the insects for your order and package them securely.
- Your order ships out within 2 business days.
- Based on delivery day, you tell USPS to hold your delivery if you won't be home to bring them inside. You can add your phone # in the "Company" line of the shipping address for your post office to reference.
- You'll get an email the day USPS has your order out for delivery, if it is not being held for pickup.
Some items can't be shipped together. For example, Basin Wheels are large and must be shipped UPS Ground - which is too slow for us to safely include live insects in the same shipment. The cart won't allow you to check out with incompatible items in the same order. If you have trouble checking out, please reach out and we'll help get it working for you!
