Terms & Conditions:

Minimum order $30* not including shipping. Will not ship roaches to FL other than the few species marked "*FL Legal*". We accept (in order of preference): Zelle, Cashapp, PayPal, Wise, or direct bank transfer. I almost always ship domestically via USPS Priority Mail, shipping via normal priority usually costs $15 to $20 depending on the order size. Priority Express costs $50-$60, and is not guaranteed to arrive overnight due to the rural area I live in (two days is more typical), so it's often redundant unless normal priority is experiencing delays. Heat packs, if needed, will cost an extra $5 per pack.

I ship out on Mondays/Tuesdays for all payments and mailing addresses received by Sunday evening. (So if you place an order on Monday, it will most likely not be shipped out until Monday/Tuesday of the FOLLOWING week).

Due to negative experiences with USPS wildly mishandling packages that are held for pickup, we suggest against asking for packages to be marked HOLD FOR PICKUP, unless you know your post offices handles these types of packages with little issue. Otherwise, if your temps are too extreme, or you won't be able to accept delivery at home, or if you have some other reason for not being able to have the invertebrates shipped to your door, then I strongly advise you don't order.

I am not responsible for any deaths due to mishandling, acts of God and extreme temperatures. If your local temperatures are in the 90's or above or the 40's and below, (and you do not include a heat pack in your order for the latter), order at your own risk! However, a lot of the species I offer are flexible when it comes to hot conditions, so if the temperatures in your area are in the 90s or above, we can discus a LAG agreement for certain, heat hardy species.

If, for some reason the invertebrates arrive dead, and they were shipped during weather I suggested should be fine, please send a photo of the dead invertebrates in question within 24 HOURS of arrival, and we can work on a replacement shipment or partial refund. If no proof in the form of a photo or a video is supplied, I will not take any responsibility for DOAs.

PM me to order, or if you have any questions. Or you can email me at: [email protected].
