As the old saying goes, “Montana weather is predictably unpredictable”. Since the insect’s development is dependent on the weather, that means that many years the insects are out early and unavailable early too. We always encourage folks to order their insects as early as possible in the year so you don’t miss your chance at the bugs.

 

FOR ORDERS OF 5 RELEASES OR MORE OF ANY COMBINATION OF SPECIES, WE OFFER A DISCOUNT OF $5 OFF EACH release.

OPEN for the 2021 season. As we are a family owned business, social distancing is not a problem for us. We work primarily outside and usually speak with customers over the phone. Masks are worn when mailing packages.
