Shipping to colder climates

Postby cbreon » Mon May 30, 2005 3:13 am

If I am shipping to Minnesota do I need heat packs ? I am using a styrofoam shipping box about 1 inch thick.

Hi Craig,
As long as the lows at night are in the 50s to 60s , and you are using a well insulated box,you need no heat or cold pack. Ship as early a guaranteed time as possible. I use UPS . They have a 10:30 am guaranteed time on almost all delivery locals, unless you are out in the boonies.

One thing to remember, heat will kill frogs MUCH faster then cold.

Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.

If tone is more important to you than content, you are at the wrong place.
