The boys at the Post Office and UPS can really make a mess out of a bug if they are not packed well.  Bugs are heavy, so if dropped, they really take a blow,... often times fatal !! A little extra care in packing will help insure your bug arrives safe and sound.


WHEN PACKING, TRY TO ENVISION WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THE BUG WERE DROPPED FROM FIVE OR SIX FEET !!  You may have packed fragile items before.  But, have you packed something that is both HEAVY and FRAGILE?
