Welcome to Michael Jacobi's SPIDERSHOPPE
IMPORTANT NOTE: I am back in Chicagoland and the weather is frigid. I apologize for the inconvenience, but animal safety is my primary concern and shipping arachnids is problematic at this time of the year. I will not risk my arachnids for a profit. I am ONLY SHIPPING HOLD FOR PICKUP and will delay shipping orders as necessary to await safe shipping windows. I will grow your spiders for you at no extra cost if we have to wait on warmer weather. If you are not satisfied with the time frame I will cancel your order and refund payment. Deliveries to the Wheaton, IL A.A.E., which is held twice monthly, or the March NARBC show in Tinley Park, IL, are no problem. I also can arrange IL meetings along the I-90 corridor from Rockford to O’Hare.
GREETING: Thank you for visiting. I invite you to browse through my online store and shop with confidence. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I have more than 35 years of experience and am happy to share it with you. You are welcome to create an account or shop as a guest. Either way, your shopping cart will be active until you leave the store. To receive special offers and advance notice of new arrivals please subscribe to my mailing list. You can also keep up with the latest Michael Jacobi's SPIDERSHOPPE news by liking and following my Facebook page.
SHIPPING: I ship via FedEx Priority Overnight using Superior Shipping Supplies FedEx processing service. Live arrival is guaranteed (see Terms and Conditions for complete LAG). Safety of the arachnids is my foremost concern. I do not use the postal service and do not ship with any service that does not get your order to you within 24 hours. The shipping fee for most orders is $46. This will be applied to your shopping cart. Proper overnight shipping is expensive and with box and cool/heat packs my cost often exceeds my fee. There is no minimum order. You'll have to decide what amount of livestock offsets the freight charge.
NOTE: Approximate sizes (in DLS, diagonal legspan) are given for the spiders that are offered for sale. All spiders are sold as unsexed, randomly chosen specimens unless otherwise indicated.
TARANTULA CARE: For care information I recommend my book, Tarantulas (Animal Planet Pet Care Library). Inscribed copies are available here for $15 including postage (US) . To order please click here (it cannot be shipped with live spiders). It is also available via pet stores and booksellers, and Amazon.com sells a Kindle edition. My 95-minute instructional film Tarantulas in the Terrarium is now available free of charge on my YouTube channel. For a wealth of accurate and FREE information, please also read my info pages and care sheets at the Tarantulas.com site. To download a comprehensive PDF directory to free online resources authored by me click here.
USA SALES ONLY. Although I am a licensed importer/exporter, I do not ship orders out of the continental United States of America. Canadian customers should try Tarantula Canada and European customers should contact The Spider Shop (Wales, UK).
Thanks again for visiting my SPIDERSHOPPE. I hope I can be of service and look forward to supplying you with the finest arachnids. Please contact me if you have any questions. All the best, Michael
