Mantid Kingdom

Praying mantids and feeder insects!

Orchids will go live on January 1st! Yahoo and AOL mail issues still happening.

So, yeah. I will be posting orchids again on the 1st. Most likely at midnight PST or just shortly afterwards. There should be plenty this time around however there are still a ton of people on the wait list. I may raise the limit on how many can be purchased, but it will still be capped (sorry!).

I normally do not give such a specific time frame however Yahoo and AOL are still blocking many of my emails, so people who sign up for notifications may not always receive them.

I have disabled priority shipping for now due to issues with USPS mail. I know the other options are a bit more spendy, but with the increase in shipping delays, coupled with the cold weather, it simply is not safe to ship live nymphs via priority mail. Even express shipping is 2-3 days now fairly often.

Shipping update – and more orchids soon.

My mantiskingdom email was down for a couple days since I was not aware that it expired as I use mantiDkingdom now, so I apologize to anyone who is getting late responses from me as most emails are just now coming through. I imagine some may have timed out, so if you have not received a reply from me for several days, please resend your email. If you STILL do not get a reply, it may be because I don’t like you. Just kidding. Sort of…

All orders are shipping Monday due to the holiday this week. Some of you already got an email about it, but due to my email issues I have noticed some of you were not aware.

I had more orchids hatch and am expecting more ooths to hatch in a week or so. The next batch will be posted before Thanksgiving.

Shipping reminder

I typically ship priority on Monday, and express on Tuesday and sometimes Wednesdays. If you order on Tuesday then your order will most likely ship out the following week. This helps to ensure your order is delivered the same week it is shipped instead of being held somewhere over the weekend, even if there are slight delays.

Bluebottle arriving next week.

My supplier for bluebottle pupae will be shipping next week, so I will have pupae to ship Tuesday or Wednesday.

Everything is up to day as far as shipping. Express is still the best option but so far I have had very few issues with priority, however I am still only shipping priority on Mondays, sometimes Tuesdays. Express is shipping Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Still no orchid hatches, sorry.
