Due to the Thanksgiving holiday we will not process an order on November 26. 
Stock requests received between noon EST on November 19 and noon EST on 
November 26 will be subcultured on November 29 and shipped on November 30 
(orders received the 26th - 28th may be included in the 11/29 round, but you 
cannot count on it). 

We do not ship flies the last two to three weeks of December due to the 
excessively high rate of loss of flies put into the mail during the 
holidays. Requests received by noon EST on December 10 will be subcultured 
on December 13 and shipped December 14. Most requests received after the 
deadline on December 10 through December 31 will be shipped sometime during 
the week of January 3 (orders received the 10th - 12th may be included in 
the 12/13 round, but you cannot count on it). Shipment of larger requests 
(more than 20 stocks) will likely be delayed until the week of January 10.
