    Freezing temperatures

    I've command in december and the package was very cold, I've search for stratiolaelaps in some samples, and ! found only 1 alive. I hope there were more than that. The hot pad was very cold and all the package too. It's past all the day in a truck without heating, I've received it at the end of the day. I don't know the temperature of the other days in shipping transit. I think that's not a good shipping method in winter, it's too long at cold temperature.

We guarantee live natural enemies upon delivery, but extreme weather or transit delays can sometimes cause problems. If you ever encounter an issue with our product quality, please reach out to our customer support team so we can assist you.
