Insect Ordering Info
Eggs are provided in lots of 1000. Substantial discounts are given for higher volumes as well as for multiple shipments and standing orders. Our minimum order for eggs is 1000. For other stages, the minimum order is $50. We ship more than the requested number of insects to account for possible loss of viability in shipment.
Most orders for Lepidoptera or Aedes aegypti eggs received before 1:00 pm EST can be shipped same day. Other species or stages may require some lead time. Approximate lead times are provided in the pricing sheet. We can ship Lepidoptera larvae of any instar on artificial diet. Call us with your special needs.
Most insects are shipped in insulated cartons via FedEx Priority overnight. A modest packaging charge is added to cover the cost of the carton and gel packs. Gel packs may be used warm or cold depending on the season. We receive an excellent discount from FedEx which we pass on to you, but we can use your FedEx account number if you wish.
