Fruit Fly Cultures

Fruit fly cultures are shipped on Mondays and Wednesdays, and any order placed by around 2 pm CST Monday or Wednesday will be shipped out on that day.  Orders can be shipped on other days, (I often ship on Tuesdays and orders arriving by early afternoon on Tuesday are often processed and shipped right away, less so on Thursdays) to get flies sent on other days please contact me by phone or email to arrange, or simply request it in the message box when you order and I'll do it if i can. 
 
PLEASE NOTE THAT SHIPMENT OF FRUIT FLIES DURING HOT WEATHER IS SOMEWHAT RISKY.  IF YOUR WEATHER IS HOT, MID EIGHTIES FOR THE DAY TIME HIGHS, THEN YOU SHOULD READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION!  
WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO CHOSE SECOND DAY SHIPPING AND HAVE THE BOX HELD FOR PICKUP AT A NEARBY FED EX OFFICE OR SIMILAR FACILITY.  GROUND SERVICE IS NOT RECOMMENDED UNLESS YOU VERIFY THAT THE LOCATION YOU HAVE CHOSEN ACCEPTS GROUND HOLD FOR PICKUP. GROUND SERVICE HAS A DIFFERENT SET OF HOLD AT LOCATIONS, AND SOME LOCATIONS DO NOT ACCEPT GROUND PACKAGES TO BE HELD.  ADDITIONALLY, I AM NOT ALWAYS ABLE TO GET GROUND SHIPMENTS INTO THE SYSTEM ON THE DAY I SHIP, THE CUTOFF TIME FOR GROUND IS EARLIER THAN EXPRESS, SO THE BOX MAY SIT HERE A DAY BEFORE BEGINNING TO TRAVEL TO YOU. 
IN MOST CASES, HAVING YOUR BOX SENT TO A FED EX LOCATION WILL RESULT IN YOUR BOX BEING READY FOR PICKUP BY NOON THE SECOND DAY FOLLOWING SHIPMENT!  THE SMALL INCONVENIENCE OF NOT HAVING YOUR FLIES DELIVERED TO YOUR ADDRESS IS MINOR COMPARED TO THE MORE SIGNIFICANT INCONVENIENCE OF DEAD OR DAMAGED CULTURES! NOTE THAT WE DO NOT GUARANTEE LIVE ARRIVAL FOR FLIES SENT TO ADDRESSES WHERE THE TEMPS ARE OVER 90 DEGREES! 
THANKS!!
