Price DOES NOT include delivery. Ships via FedEx 2 Day to a street address only (no Post Office box).

Insects are sent out Monday through Wednesday. Place your order at least 3 business days in advance of desired shipping date (Monday holidays will delay processing of order). Unless you specify otherwise, we will send your Beneficial Insects on the next possible shipping day. You could also request delayed delivery in the Order-Specific Comments box. We can only accept ship dates up to three weeks out.

These are shipped with cold packs in warm months. Do not be alarmed when the cold packs arrive warm or melted, as this will not affect the viability of the product. However, these creatures may die if left in direct sunlight or in a rural mailbox on a hot afternoon, or in cold weather. We only guarantee viability if someone accepts and inspects the insects immediately upon delivery. You must contact us immediately upon delivery if you suspect a viability problem.

Because of this, often the best address to use is a work address. If FedEx is instructed to leave the package in a cool, safe place and it’s for a short period of time, viability should not be compromised, but cannot be guaranteed. If no one is available and no instructions have been left, delivery may be re-attempted the next business day. However, viability may be compromised and will not be guaranteed.

Reviews

Newbie corrections

We switched to 100% ORGANIC gardening last year and made the novice mistake of leaving our garden ground completely naked over the winter...Our plan was to switch to no-till this year, but as you might guess, without a cover crop, our soild was hard, mostly dead, and a perfect host home for the nastiest, fattest root-eating grubs you've ever seen. Applied the nematodes, as directed (at dusk, watered area thoroughly, sprayed on with pump sprayer) and things seem to be perking up in the garden! I haven't gotten to the second application yet, but I'll update this once I do.
