HOW MUCH DOES SHIPPING COST?
ALL OF OUR ITEMS ARE ALWAYS SHIPPED FOR FREE!!!
All items are shipped by 1st class or Priority mail If you purchase 2 or more items at the same time and we will automatically upgrade your purchase to Priority Mail for FREE.
CAN I REMOVE THE INSECTS FROM THE FRAMES?
All of our specimens are permanently mounted onto their backing cards with glue and the displays are permanently sealed.
We do not ship pinned, riker mounted or un-mounted specimens..
IS THE INSECT PICTURED THE ACTUAL ONE THAT I WILL RECEIVE?
Since we sell so many insects we can not provide individual pictures of every specimen that we sell. We do guarantee that the insect you receive will look as good as or better than the stock photo used.
IS THE FRAME INCLUDED WITH THE INSECT OR IS THERE AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE?
All items are mounted in a natural wood display with a sealed glass face on an acid free backing board at no additional charge.
DO YOU SELL YOUR FRAMES EMPTY?
Unfortunately, since we sell so many insects we can barely keep up with making the frames we need for our own use.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Or you can mail a payment, please e-mail us for payment instructions.
ARE THESE BUTTERFLIES AND INSECTS REAL?
Yes all of the insects are real and are in their natural state. These insects have all been raised in farms, aviaries and co-ops that promote wild land conservation. An informative leaflet is included with each piece.
WHY ARE SOME BUTTERFLIES MOUNTED VERSO OR FACE DOWN?
Most butterflies have two completely different sides with different colors and markings. What you see on the front may be completely different on the other side. About 3/4 of all butterflies that we sell are available either face up or verso. Some butterflies only have beautiful markings verso so they are only sold that way.
ARE ALL OF YOUR FRAMES MADE FROM WOOD?
All of our frames are made from natural pine wood obtained from a local family run sawmill that gathers only trees that are sick, dying or from burn areas.
IS THE FRONT OF THE FRAME GLASS OR PLASTIC?
Each frame has a sealed glass face
WHERE ARE THEY MADE?
All of our items are hand made by us in the U.S.A.
ARE ANY OF YOUR INSECTS ENDANGERED OR PROTECTED?
IS THE COUNTRY PRINTED ON THE CARD WHERE THE INSECT IS RAISED?
No the country of origin is where the insect may be found but they are not necessarily raised there.
