Unfortunately, the policy below needed to be created due to a few customers taking advantage of Biotactics and the process for purchasing live insects using a credit card. Roughly 99% of all orders shipped, arrive on time. Even if delayed up to a day, the packing equipment used is rated to keep the predators alive from 1 day to 1 week in transit depending on conditions. Please read the policy below and reach out if you have any questions. Again, this policy has only been needed on less than a handful of orders but is needed to protect us from those who may take advantage of our process and generosity.
Before ordering, Biotactics Inc. recommends the customer know the application rates for their garden or contact Biotactics for a free consultation. This will include the plant count, height, damage level, and several other external factors. Application rate and knowledge of application will be assumed if the customer does not reach out for consultation prior to ordering. Biotactics Inc. does not imply or confirm eradication once predatory mites are applied. Although rare, eradication is possible after one application, typically multiple applications are needed to help the eradication process and this depends on the total number of predatory mites ordered. Failure to order enough predatory mites for the customers infestation is not grounds for a refund and this policy will be cited in case of a chargeback attempt.
Due to the nature of shipping live insects, Biotactics Inc. requires all customers requesting a refund or replacement to submit video evidence of the viability or lack thereof within 24 hours of the shipment being delivered. The 24 hour window to submit video evidence begins as noted on the delivery confirmation time noted by the tracking number provided by the shipping company. Customers may text the video evidence to 951-943-2819 or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Video evidence must include a 15-30 second video of the predators shaken onto a white sheet of paper showing no movement. This allows Biotactics to review that mites dropped onto the paper and ensure there are no (or very few) live mites active. The video must be close enough to show if there is or isn’t movement of the predators.
For Cancellations, please contact Biotactics at 951-943-2819 or email@example.com before receiving your tracking number and shipping information. Orders that have already shipped do not qualify for cancellation under our policy and will not be entitled to a refund due to the nature of being live insects raised and pulled from their culture.
For orders that are delivered dead on arrival, customers may choose to have a full replacement at no cost to them, or a full refund as long as video evidence has been submitted on time.
