PanTerra Pets is taking a little vacation! B-)

Well, it’s not exactly a vacation, really – we are actually moving! We are really excited about it, but with all of the work that moving already entails, it will be about all we can do to keep up with the thousands of bugs we care for on a daily basis, let alone the many hours we normally spend packing and shipping orders to all of our amazing customers who helped make this possible.
That is why we will effectively be closing down for much of the summer – but don’t worry, we’ll be back soon! The last day to place most orders will be June 16th, and we expect to be fully back up and running by September 16th.
We WILL continue to offer blue bottle fly pupae for sale during this time. Because let’s face it – a mantis needs to eat! Our hungry little handfuls won’t be giving us any breaks, and we certainly don’t expect yours to cut us any slack, either. ;-) However, all other products on the website will temporarily show as “out of stock”.
We sure will miss you all while we’re away! :’( But we’ll be sure to send “post cards” a la Instagram and Facebook, so be sure to follow us for all of the latest highlights and updates.
