Shipping Roaches


Recommended Posts

I don't think there's another thread on here about the best ways to ship roaches and inverts. I thought it would be helpful for people to share any tips or tricks on packing, shipping, trading, pricing etc. roaches. If you have any experience shipping roaches please give some advice!

I've never shipped before and don't really plan on it, but I'm impressed by the shredded paper material that was used inside the box around the deli cups on a couple orders I made. I wasn't expecting that.

Crinkled newspaper has worked well in other orders 😊

I wish it wasn't so hot here already- I'm leary of ordering in the heat. 97 today.

What's the highest temperature that someone has successfully shipped to or from?

107-ish, so long as the roaches have adequate humidity and are WELL VENTILATED, most spp. can handle shipping in very hot conditions. It can be a pain to balance the humidity and ventilation perfectly though, and it's something you become better at with experience.
