*Winter packaging

In months with freezing night temperatures (mostly from November to March), living animals will only be shipped with extra winter packaging. The shipment of parcels with feeder insects then contains a heat pack, with show insects (praying mantises and other invertebrates) comes to the heat pack also an insulation (hemp mat).

The following winter shipping surcharges will be automatically added to the shipping cost according to the shopping cart contents and destination country:

  • Heatpack M (within Germany): 0.65  €
  • Heatpack XL (international): 1.00 €
  • Hemp mat insulation: 2.40 €

The heatpacks heat up on contact with air (oxygen) and can not be reused. Please dispose of these in the residual waste after receipt. The hemp mats are biodegradable and can be re-used or disposed in organic waste.

All prices incl. VAT.
