This site sent ours on weds with egg cartons but monkey girl got hers in newspaper.
livefoods always use egg boxes... i think i've had mealies in newspaper once but a friend of mine gave them to me so i don't know where they came from.I used livefoods direct for a while and they were cheap, reliable etc. Just a pain in the backside removing crickets from the scrunched up newspaper they are packed with (and ultimately scooping them off the conservatory floor cos so many get away). Do other sites use egg cartons then? If so I might go back to getting crickets by post
none of the live food companys like it when orders go missing, because they are insects they are not covered by royal mail even if they lose them so the company either has to replace at there own cost or lose a customeri used live food for good. i used them twice and then on my 3rd order it never turned up, i emailed them and said i never got them they got abit shirty but replaced them and the orders take a few days ,
