Fear Not Tarantulas ships year-round. We utilize special Polar Tech boxes that do a great job of protecting the spiderlings during their journey. While packing, we determine which box to use based on the various temperatures the box will be traveling through. Some of our boxes have 2" or more of insulation which gives great protection against sharp temperature increases or decreases. We will also use heat or cold packs designed for shipping live creatures as needed.
After you order we will look at the temperatures in your area and let you know if we have any concerns. If you have chose to have us ship to your home, we may ask if we can change to ship to a FedEx center. The reason for that is all shipment to a FedEx center are delivered first, so there is much less time in a hot or cold truck.
We can ship to destinations with temperatures in the single digits as long as it is to a FedEx center with an early morning delivery.
All our packages spend the night at Memphis, TN, so if we see very cold weather or a storm brewing there, we may ask that shipping be delayed until it clears up. This helps avoid flight delays between Memphis and the destination.
