DISCLAIMER FOR INFESTATION:

Botanicals, herbs and spices are natural raw materials. Just like wheat and corn, these natural goods can become infested with insects. Golden Bough Botanicals Inc. implements several precautionary methods to control infestation.

If you observe infestation in botanicals, immediately isolate and remove the infested botanicals from your warehouse or storage area so as not to expose any "clean inventory". You can kill the insects by freezing the infested botanical at zero degrees Fahrenheit. Golden Bough Botanicals Inc. makes no warranty that the product we ship to you will be 100% free of infestation, as infestation can occur at any point in the supply chain. We strongly recommend that you implement a monitoring program for insect activity in your premise.
