    I know a lot of bait companies use ups mick,or any reliable courier would do the job,as long as it is next day delv.Would be a lot of intrest mick me thinks,I know I would be.Blow lug would be ok in paper,in the polybox,had it myself thru the post without any issues.Keep up the good work ;)

    As I couldn't get out and dig myself, I tried some of Online Baits blow lug for the uptide fest. Packaged together with some frozen bits and bobs in a polybox half the blow had frozen and was useless when it got to me

    foo You've gotta be in it to win it.

    Poly box Mick ;) Line the box with a couple of sheets of newspaper then loosely wrap the worms in paper as if you were putting them in the fridge and then put in the poly box. Add a couple of home made freezer packs (water frozen in plastic bags) and pack with more paper to stop things moving around bang on the lid and bobs your uncle ::)
    Another thing worth mentioning is couriers usually charge by package and not by weight so it would be bebefitial for buyers to club together when buying worms because 500 would be same price as 50 if all in the same box 8)
    Good luck mate hope you make a fortune.

    found these on google

    http://www.jbpackaging.co.uk/1-5kg-polybox.html

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/8-LTR-POLYSTYRENE-BOX-COOL-BOX-FISH-BOX-QTY-10-/281221301263 (Looks a bit expensive :-\)

    Pet stores use them for fish and live food for reptiles?, maybe bin them?? worth asking if they throw away/ re-cycle.


    here another 1 http://www.starlightpackaging.co.uk/categories/Boxes/1.5klo-Boxes/ looks not bad for price??
