How hot is too hot to ship by Priority? It'll be 90-95 degrees out the next few days, and really that seems like it's pushing it. Don't wanna lose my investment ;)

Thx :D

Well im not from the u.s, so im guessing that as long as the spider is only in transport for 24hrs or so, it should be ok. Most mail delivery vans have a/c and i cant see the box being left in direct sunlight.

I'd think 90-95 is too hot for priority, pay the extra $$ and get over night.

Usually boxes are never exposed to extreme temps but if it gets left out in a sunny spot for a few hours it won't matter how it is sent or if there's a cold pack (you can use a cold pack if you want).

Or have a .99 cent cold pack from Walmart dropped in the box along with them. That works, too.
