Our Worms are packed in breathable bags and shipped in 8 cu. in. corrugated cardboard shipping boxes. They are clearly marked LIVE WORMS / PERISHABLE.
Note: We had to revise our shipping of “live guarantee” as too many people were not home to receive their worms and worms were being left in the mailbox.” If Temperatures exceed 80 degrees F we reserve the right to hold off on shipping until the temperature cools off. If temps are 80+degrees on your end we will ask Postal Service to Hold for you to pick up. This is to ensure your worms stay in a cool environment. This is especially important during the month of July and August.
Please read and ask questions before placing orders, once the order is placed and paid for we will assume you have read all the details of guaranteed live delivery policies.
No refunds are given on worm sales.

We are not responsible for the health of the worms after they are delivered or if delivery attempts are made and are unsuccessful. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to immediately follow-up on notices left by the post office. Problems must be reported on the same day as delivery is made.

Please make sure the address you give is correct, as giving an inaccurate “ship to” will void this guarantee.
