*LIVE MEALWORM GUARANTEE: Mealworms are insured if Next Day service is selected and the package is received upon delivery before 10:30 am. Exotic Nutrition does not guarantee live mealworms that are left outside, delivered to a mail box, or undeliverable by the carrier. To check delivery times in your area with overnight service, please call 1.800.463.3339.

If mealworms are D.O.A. (Dead On Arrival), simply take a photo and email it to us at within 24 hours of delivery describing the percentage of worms lost. Replacement worms will be shipped at the cost and discretion of Exotic Nutrition. The worms and shipping costs are nonrefundable. If Next Day Service shipping is not selected at checkout, the customer assumes all risk with no exceptions.

ORDER CHANGES/CANCELLATIONS: If you wish to change or cancel an order, please contact us immediately. Most orders are processed immediately and shipped from our facility within 24 hours of order placement. You must contact us directly to change or cancel an order, either by phone (during business hours) or by email if a response is confirmed. If your order has been processed and/or shipped, it is not possible to cancel; see our Return Policy tab. If a package is refused the shipper's original shipping cost and return costs will be deducted once the package is returned. 

ADDRESS CORRECTIONS: Review the shipping address on the confirmation page or order receipt after checkout. Please contact us directly (by phone and email) as soon as possible in order to make any changes. It is not always possible to change a shipping address after the order has been processed and/or shipped. If the carrier allows a change of address after the package is in transit, the customer is responsible for additional costs ($13 per box collected by carrier).

UNDELIVERABLE PACKAGES: We are not responsible for delayed, lost or undeliverable packages at the fault of an incorrect address or delivery issue. Packages that are undeliverable and are returned to us (undamaged) can be reshipped at the expense of the recipient or can be refunded for the cost of the product(s) minus the return shipping cost. Live mealworms are a perishable product and are not eligible for return or refund. Shipping charges are non refundable and non transferable. Packages that need to be re-shipped will incur additional shipping charges.

LOST/STOLEN PACKAGES: All packages are shipped with tracking and delivery confirmation. If there is a delivery confirmation for a package but the recipient did not receive it, the package is considered lost or stolen. In this case, we will file a trace investigation with the carrier in order to recover the package. If the package is not recovered within 48 hours we will file a claim with the carrier for the lost package. We do not accept responsibility of stolen packages- these are at the fault of the recipients unsecure delivery location. Signature service is available upon request to prevent package theft; please see "Signature Service Delivery" below. We do not offer refunds for lost or stolen packages.

SIGNATURE SERVICE DELIVERY: Carriers offer signature service delivery for an additional $5 shipping cost. The options are: Indirect Signature, Adult Signature and Direct Signature. Please use the comment box at checkout labelled "Special Instructions" to request one of the delivery options and provide a valid phone number. A customer service representative will contact you by phone in order to confirm the delivery instructions and to collect the additional $5 fee.

DAMAGES, DEFECTS, SHORTAGES, INCORRECT ITEMS: Upon receipt of your package, please inspect for issues. Any issues must be reported within 48 hours of delivery. Items that are missing, damaged or defective are not eligible for refund, they will be replaced at the cost of the seller. Please send picture confirmation (by email) of any damaged/defective products for our records. If the seller requests the product to be returned, a prepaid return label will be issued to the buyer for exchange. If the buyer requests to return an item for a refund, the return costs will be at the expense of the buyer. Yogurt products are shipped at your own risk, we are not responsible for melted products during extreme heat in transit. We do not accept returns/exchanges or offer refunds for yogurt products that melted in transit or upon return.
