Maybe we could get this thread posted as a sticky.....

I the invert hobby there are supplies that we all use but few people actually know where to find them... it's taken me years to "discover" them. A great example are the plastic invert vials... Thornton plastics produces them and offers 9 different sizes! When you order, it's a huge box...it's nice to split an order with someone... Or all the deli cups..Superior Enterprise sells ALL your shipping needs, including a new SMALL styro lined box that is PERFECT for shipping inverts in. And lastly, a few days ago I discovered a really cool site that sells beetle breeding supplies (books, bedding, beetle jellies, etc!!!). I have talked with them in emails and they seem extremely nice (they come reccomended from a friend). We can buy Beetle Jelly here in the US from Orin here on the site and Double D's, but If you need an entire case, Kingdom of Beetle seems like the place to go (and they offer a really cool beetle jelly cup slicer)!

I'm going to add these links to my website in a Resource/Supply section:

Thornton Plastics http://www.thorntonplastics.com/ Manufacturer of asst. sized plastic vials which are perfect for field collecting, housing and shipping invertebrates.

Superior Enterprise http://superiorenterprise.com/ Supplier of deli cups, insulated shipping boxes, heat/cold packs, snake bags, etc.

Kingdom of Beetle Taiwan http://screw-wholesale.myweb.hinet.net/ Supplier of Beetle Jelly and all your beetle breeding supplies. Great people!

Can any think of other suppliers I should add?

Lets not forget the good old USPS.You can order free shipping boxes, tape, forms and labels, all shipped straight to your door for free. It just takes 7 to 10 days and if they have it in stock.

Here is the link:

http://shop.usps.com/webapp/wcs/stores/ser..._category=11820

If you look at the bottom of the description of the product you want, a lot of them are marked "No Charge"

Hope this helps everyone else out.

Yes, I forgot about the free boxes that USPS will send you...although they aren't the nice styro lined ones, they still work fine during certain temps...plus they'll send you free labels and tape....
