Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is ProBugs?
Probugs is a company that we partner with who provides an alternative option to live insect feeders for our customers. You can learn more about our partnership on our website.
2. Why can’t I add a heat pack to my order? It’s cold.
We don’t include heat packs with our orders until it is under 20 degrees. With your order, we do include Styrofoam peanuts. The peanuts and the body heat of the insects keeps them warm on their travel. If there is too much heat, they will cook themselves.
3. Why is my tracking still saying that my order is in Chardon?
USPS often scans the batch of packages when it is received at our local post office in Chardon. Once the package leaves our local office, the next hub doesn’t always scan the packages. Since this happens, it seems like the package is still at our post office for days. Rest assured the package is traveling and is on its way to you. Keep an eye out on the tracking to update when it is scanned at your local post office.
4. When will my order arrive?
It normally takes 3 to 4 business days for the package to be deliver by USPS. Sometimes, it does take longer depending on the season. If there are any issues, please email us.
5. My insect feeders just arrived and they are not moving. What’s going on?
Sometimes when the feeders get cold, they go into a hibernation. Take them out of the bag and put them into a container. Then, leave them at room temperature or put on heat tape. Give them a couple hours to warm up. If they don’t come back to life, please email us with a picture and your order number.

First, check to see if the package is in any unusual place around your home. If you are not able to find the package, please contact your local post office. They are able to talk to the post office person that delivered the package. If they are not able to find the package, please contact us by email.
