I have shipped or recieved at least 15 packages in the last 2 weeks (I live in N.W Ohio). I'm not sure if your offering experience or an uneducated guess. To the O.P. use a styrofoam lined box w/ a 40 hr heat pack and as usual pack your T well in it's vial or deli. The other thing I change at this time of year , the paper towel I pack the T in is just lightly misted and express shipping only. I've had alot of success with this but I'm also stopping shipping in the middle of december. Good Luck PM me if you have any q's.I don't belive she will survive 24 hours at that temperature. There should be at least 50 F.
How can you state that it's too dangerous for the T if you have NO experience in this? I get that that is your opinion, but be careful how you word things. The way you wrote it makes it look like your implying that it's a fact and not just your personal opinion.I am not offering experience because I never tried to ship at that temperature because is to dangerous for the tarantula. If you succeded, I am happy for you but I wouldn't take the risk.
Just like most things on here. If you don't have the experience to share and help the OP, then keep the fingers off the key board. In doing so you will learn a couple of things I promise.I am not offering experience because I never tried to ship at that temperature because is to dangerous for the tarantula. If you succeded, I am happy for you but I wouldn't take the risk.
I shipped out 22 boxes this week....to Minnesota, Michigan New york ect....15 of the boxes where priority....one was a 4 day priority to Michigan all came out running. I use a 3/4" all lined 7 X 7 X 6 Styrofoam (hand cut) box and 60 hour heatpacks for priority and 40 for express. These where all slings that where shipped.It is possible to ship it out in that temperature range so long as you packed it really well. Some members on here have received successful shipments, even packages that were late or exposed to the cold for longer than ideal. I think RobC has a video on winter packing.
