Lightbulb Newbie here trying to find new locust supplier

Hi there,
does anyone know of a good locusts supplier as when ours arrives there's at least a 1/4 dead in the boxes and after 2 days at least half are dead. We follow the instructions for after care but nothing is working and not sure who to use now.

Any help would be much appreciated ta

I've always used these if you don't mind ordering online, I have ordered in the past up to 150/200 and not one died, all very healthy but there is loads of reliable livefood supplier around to be honest. Just depends whats available.

Depends how ask them to deliver. For me it was very quick, I ordered on the saturday, arrived on tuesday but was sent to the Royal Mail depot, I think it's always special delivery for there items so you can set up with Royal Mail where you want them to leave the package on premises. Like I say my locusts spent one night at the depot and not one dead one the morning after. I would presume it would be colder in a location on your premises (dustbin, somewhere random and hidden in the garage?) but I presume you'd be home quick to throw the box on top of a warm rad. They also use a courier service for a little more which you can arrange a time & day for delivery I think.

The BEST livefood supplier by far I've ever used is the live food warehouse:

Welcome to the Livefood Warehouse

Arrives quicker than all others I've tried on average and they're all alive and exactly how described.

I use them, they are great, if you order before 2.30/3pm you should get your order next day & the p&p is very good aswell.
