bugs for sale in chicago
#1
I have a good supply of springtails, isopods, and micro pods for sale. I'd prefer local pickup but shipping upon good weather through usps 2-3 day or overnight can be done from 60445. Willing to do trades for rare plants, broms, supplies, frogs, etc.

For guaranteed live arrival overnight or 2 day shipping, signature upon delivery, and notification of any problems within 24 hours is needed. All cultures are producing, bred by me, and are mite free. Occasionally mites pop up here and there. They are inevitable in the hobby and will not cause any significant damage. In the case of mites in a culture I will gladly send you a new mite free culture and an extra culture of your choice for your trouble. I will need the mite infested culture and I'll cover the shipping of the new ones. No refunds unless order is completely wrong, bugs are dead upon arrival, or result of shipping mishap.Minimum order is $30 before shipping and orders over $75 recieve a free culture of their choice.Micropods are not included in live arrival bc they are very sensitive. I will do my best to compensate in this case but as long as weather is good these problems are rare.

Also, upon receiving an order do not assume all bugs are dead if they are not moving right away. Simply open the lids for a half an hour and watch them come back. This results from a lack of oxygen but rarely does this ever kill them.

Cultures are available in 16oz. deli cups, 25oz tupperware, or breeder cultures in small shoebox cultures when available.

Springtails:
temperate whites $5/16oz $10/25oz
temperate blues $7/16oz $13/25oz
tropical pinks/whites $6/16oz $11/25oz
giant blacks $8/16oz $14/25oz
*silvers $6/16oz $11/25oz
*platinums $7/16oz $13/25oz
*undescribed sp. 1 $8/16oz $15/25oz
*undescribed sp. 2 $8/16oz $15/25oz

Isopods:
*Giant oranges $9/16oz $18/25oz
pillbugs $6/16oz $11/25oz
dwarf whites $8/16oz $15/25oz
dwarf greys $8/16oz $15/25oz
dwarf purples $9/16oz $17/25oz
jungle micropods $10/16oz $19/25oz

Hello Matt!

Has all of this been resolved?

As far as I know. In fact, one of the worst situations I'd dealt with I'm doing business with again. I took care of everything a while ago,and furthermore I'll admit that my health issues had some to do with my slow shipping, a few of those complaints were very inconsiderate people. I always do my best to resolve any situation, however I had my terms stated in my posts, in which some didn't read and expected more than just resolving the situation. If you'd like to talk about this in further detail I'd be happy to but I'd prefer to keep this off of my post just to avoid any negative looking feedback. I can also provide shipping receipts, emails, etc if need be. Again, this is my only source of income while waiting for disability so it's important to me that I have an opportunity to post. I do have days here and there where I'm out of commission bc of breakthrough pain, and since shipping bugs are 2-3 day generally, 1-2 days of being out puts it back a week. Again any questions just let me know.

I would like to imagine if all the issues were in fact cleared up. That it would be cleared up in the feedback thread by the people that were effected.

If I were you.... I would implore those people to at least leave feedback stating that all issues have been resolved.

I'm assuming they forgot since its been so long, but I'm not sure. Ill ask them to do so but throughout all of this I feel like I was never asked for my side of the story, or all my good transactions were taken into account. Furthermore, having to file a police report for harrassment on one of those members and another one flat out lying about our transaction which I have(had) proof of never mattered kinda bothered me. I mean going from being a member w/I Amy problems to all these accusations might have another side of that story. I'm not trying to be rude , I'm just asking for a little empathy and letting u know that illegal activity initiated through this site was never even considered when I was banned. Like I said in more than open to talking and will do my best to get those things removed.

Matt,

Who 'banned" you ? It wasn't me or Dart Den. I took a couple ads down, in the midst of the 2 people that had issues with you. And to be fair, Dart Den has ALWAYS been the ONLY Dart Frog forum to allow everyone to tell their side of the story. Not DB...never there. Your feedback thread is here and open, and you can make a new thread on virtually anything you like...always.

And...

If you come to an understanding with a prior buyer that listed bad feedback and you both wish to resolve things and DO resolve things - then we can delete the negative feedback. That's standard for feedback and shows our commitment to help make things right in the mediation process.

I hope everything is going well - better, at least and look forward to you being able to provide animals and feeders.

So you delete all negative feedback if the seller makes good? Who is that helping? You delete feedback on a seller, I look up that seller, see nothing but positive feedback, and he rips me off. At least leave it so the individual has a chance to red BOTH sides and come to their own conclusion whether they want to to business with that person. So your feedback section is just as bogus as any other. As long as proof is given no feedback should ever be edited, deleted. Shocked Phil
Matt, My comments have nothing to do with you.

So what exactly is wrong where you are having break through pain, that sets you back a week?

If I order bugs and you have break through pain I would like to know why my bugs are delayed for 2-3weeks.

I've done a few deals with Matt, and while he does have his health issues that occasionally put a damper on speedy service, he's always shown himself to be an upfront and honest person to me.

Things happen, and I really hope Matt begins feeling better soon so he can keep supplying the hobby with new varieties of springs and isopods.

I would like to order. I just want to know up front what I am dealing with.

It's easy to just say I have "health issues" and then not send an order. But mostly what kind of break through pain puts you out for a week?

By even considering doing this you are erasing history and opening the door for it's repeating.
Please let us know if there has been any negative feedback removed yet due to supposed reversal of fortune from any vendor here, please...
I am more of the belief (TARON LANGHOVER, TARON LANGHOVER, SIDNEY FERRELL, SIDNEY FERRELL) that the stripes don't change so quickly. And reward for simply doing what was right in the first place is not acceptable.
Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.


If tone is more important to you than content, you are at the wrong place.

I think on the small transactions....try to get people an incentive to make good.

Would you consider 'erasing the Sidney stuff", if you suddenly got 40 bills with Ben Franklin on them ?

To date, it's not happened - the two parties coming together to say 'clear the feedback". And bottom line, like you say, is someone bad REALLY ever gonna get clean ? I doubt it.

And Byron....we don't need to know Matt's medical history. This site is doing it's work, folks. People are finally on notice and WORRIED about stuff for a change. ForEVER it's been 'eh, DB won't ever entertain anything bad said about me". Not anymore. Not here.
