Christmas 2020 shipping

Dear customers! 

Christmas time is very near and as it happens every year postal traffic will increase significantly. Taking into account that current situation with anti-covid measures slowed delivery speed down this Christmas may turn into a disaster.

So we are going to stop shipping of live insects on 10. December as chance they will be stuck in transition till January will be very high. 

Phasmid eggs, feeding cultures and equipment will be shipped as usual till 21. December, the latest posting day confirmed by AnPost (full list of Christmas 2020 last postal dates).

So if you are planning to get something before this – this is a good time to think what you may need!

We wish you all a Merry Christmas! Stay safe!

Ireland’s 6 weeks of COVID19 lockdown update

As most of you know Ireland is going to lockdown starting from 22. October, but don’t worry, we will continue to take and ship orders!

Just keep in mind that transition time required for delivery may be longer – postal services will be definitely over loaded with traffic as people will order most of goods online.

For our UK customers – we will watch situation with international postage closely and will continue to ship orders till situation will not be worsened for too bad. Also be aware that we are not able to guarantee safe delivery under current conditions.

Let’s hope for the best and take care!

If you will have any questions – use the contact form below, we will be happy to assist!

Shipping to UK and EU countries temporarily suspended

Based on negative experience with recent orders delivery we decided to temporarily suspend shipping to other countries.

Postal services are badly understaffed right now meanwhile post traffic significantly increased as COVID19 lockdown drive people to order goods online etc. This is the reason why transition times increased beyond allowable boundaries and chance that animals survive is very low.

We will start to ship orders outside of Ireland again when situation will be improved.

Sorry for inconveniences and thanks for your understanding. And take care!

COVID-19 update

We are continuing to ship orders as post offices are working, but due to introducing of strict isolation measures by Irish government shipping dates can be adjusted to current situation (which is pretty unpredictable right now).

Hopefully this crisis will be settled soon, be well and take care!

Just in case we are including direct link to “Our Health Service” website, a lot of useful information about Covid.

Shipping schedule – Christmas holidays


Please, be aware that starting from Tuesday, 17. December, we are stopping to ship orders due to Christmas holidays and high chance of delayed delivery – transition time is life critical for insects in regards of pretty cold weather conditions.

All orders we will receive after this date will be shipped on Monday, 6. January 2020!

Christmas is coming!

So the happy time is not so far now!

And as always it is wise to mention that except all the positiveness it will bring to us delayed delivery dates too.

Postal services will be overwhelmed with traffic and we are strongly recommend to chose Express method to increase chances of successful order delivery. Also it is traceable and that will give us all more peace of mind, especially as weather conditions are getting worse.
