Aussie Fauna Promoting Education and Pet Nutrition through silkworms
Aussie Fauna live silkworms are bred in our veterinary approved facility (see FAQ for more information) ensuring only the healthiest silkworms. They are available year round as they are raised on a premium quality European silkworm chow (a mulberry based food). Our live silkworms are shipped in the 2nd or 3rd instars (4th and 5th instar, i.e. larger silkworms, available on request and if available). The silkworms are shipped as a mixture of white seductress and zebra silkworms, if you prefer a certain strain please leave a note in the comments on checkout and we will do our best to provide your preference of white seductress or zebra, however this is based on availability and not guaranteed.
Live Silkworms Term and Conditions: All live silkworm orders will be shipped on Mondays and Tuesdays. Any order received after 5pm Monday evening will be shipped the FOLLOWING week. All Live Silkworms are shipped via Australia Post Express and tracking numbers are available. If multiple products are purchased at the same time (i.e. silkworm chow), the live silkworms and the additional products will be shipped separately due to the high costs associated with the extra weight and express shipping. In extreme weather conditions (i.e. too hot in summer or too cold in winter) orders of live silkworms will be held and shipped when weather conditions improve (this is to the discretion of Aussie Fauna). The silkworms are packaged in a proven and tested method for shipping for several years with minimal mortalities and live arrival is guaranteed; however the purchaser is responsible to pay for the shipping and handling costs of the replacement worms. Once the silkworms arrive there is no further guarantee on the silkworms, so be sure to report any problems as soon as possible. Live silkworms are not available to ship to Western Australia and Tasmania.
