Best insects ever!.
I have ordered caterpillars from other companies that have weak/broken wings. I never have trouble with Insect Lore. One batch of ladybugs didn't make it through the mail in the AZ heat but Insect Lore replaced them with no questions asked. They're great! My butterflies and ladybugs are always healthy and strong and a great science lesson for my classroom and my own kids.
Fun for the whole family!.
This has been fun, exciting and educational. The kids and parents have bonded about this experience. It's a great gift that will spark questions out of small children... and adults. The customer service is also fast and fantastic. One of our chrysalis fell and within minutes, I had a response via e-mail on what to do. I will be a repeat customer buying this program for gifts and probably again for our family!
2 Time Owner, Never Saw Results (in classroom).
Not sure if we just kept getting duds, it was too cold in our center or we weren't patient enough but this was our second year trying out the mantises and we never saw a single one hatch. Followed the instructions, word for word (keeping the temperature warm enough was a challenge and may have been our downfall) but alas, never saw a single nymph. After the 10 week mark came and passed, we didn't bother putting the cases in the fridge as suggested and decided to just throw the cases outside. On another note, we've seen a lot more praying mantises outside than usual...?
