This is really bad, we can't leave here if we do, we will not be able to get back until the fire is over. We are running
on generators and solar panels at this time. As soon as power is restored I will be refunding payments for any orders we were
not able to complete. Do not place any more orders at this time.
This is not good news, the fire has burned over 10,000 acres and is only 5% contained. The entire town
of Mariposa has been evacuated. The air is so thick with smoke it is hard to breathe. The only power is from our
own generators. PG&E says no power until 6am. I live on the outskirts of town, and did not have to evacuate but the post
office was evacuated and no power so todays shipments did not go out. I will take them to Oakhurst or Fresno if need be tomorrow.

The weekend that began on 07/07 was not good for us, several wildfires started and burned hundreds of acres of forests
and wild land, unfortunately 80% of our ladybug nesting grounds were located in these areas. Because of this,
most of our time this past week had been spent on assessment and recovery and most shipments were delayed for a few days.
As of today, all orders have now been shipped. Future orders are being harvested from our remaining 20% of nesting grounds
located in a different area. Because of the distance we must travel to harvest the ladybugs, we will only be harvesting
one time per week and shipping will be on Tuesday and Friday. We ask that anyone that may have any problems regarding
an order please be patient, we will get o you asap. I have made a page for fire photos if anyone is interested.
