Joy Tomlinson

When caterpillar net arrived used voucher to order caterpillars but they were sold out. This was for a birthday present. Rung up and told this doesn't usually happen. The next date for them to be posted out was 12 days later! Not good enough child was upset.

Susan Green
Missing eggs/caterpillars

At the beginning of the month I used my coupon to order eggs/caterpillars to be dispatched 7.4.21, and as yet there is no sign of them!
While the delivery of the butterfly container(s) was very prompt, it is not much use without the livestock to go in them!

Hello Susan, could you please contact Insect Lore with your order number, they should be able to provide a reason if your caterpillars haven't been dispatched? Alternatively, please email us on and we can check with them on your behalf.

Kind regards,

Super service and product

We recognise the importance of minimising our impact on the planet. When it comes to packaging, we use recyclable or reused materials. Our parcels are packed in cardboard boxes, cushioned with recyclable paper and closed with strong paper tape. We also keep all packaging from stock deliveries to reuse in your parcels. Often we cut boxes to size in order to use less cushioning paper, so sometimes the box you receive from us might not be very pretty, but know that this is done on purpose and it's kinder to the planet.

We work hard to send your orders as fast as possible. We dispatch orders daily Monday - Friday and most orders are sent same or next working day. However, please allow up to 3 working days in busy periods (Christmas and Easter for example).

Gift wrap is also available at checkout with option for gift message included. The result of this service is a beautifully wrapped present, tied with pretty ribbon. Our gift wrapping paper is 100% FSC certified wrapping paper from Maileg.
