Hey guys, just wanted to inform you that I need to take a break from all the bug orders. Thanks so much for all the orders you guys have placed! I am just so busy right now and can't do all these orders going out every week. I never imagined my culture thread would escalate to this! I have shipped out so many hundreds of starter cultures! I'll still be around, and I'll get back to bugs soon enough, but for right now, they're driving me (should I say it?) buggy!

PS, if you have already placed an order, it will be filled. I know I accidently erased one inquiry and the name eludes me. If that's you, pm me, it will jog my memory and I'll try to take care of you as we already discussed this a week or two ago.

Anyone who has any cultures available is welcome to link to your "for sale ad" here to help some people out.

Ahhhh. So the intervention has started. When will we see you on Hoarders? I can just see you at a desk posting away on Dendroboard, in a dark room, towers of Delicups and Ziploc containers piled to the ceiling, pleading with the therapists to let you keep just one Culture of Giant Spanish Orange Isos.

:p

I imagine that manually taking orders like you do is quite the burden. Then packing and shipping on top of all of that gets to be really time consuming. You should consider whipping up a simple web page with an automated ordering and payment process to ease the burden a bit. Whatever you decide to do I hope you come back to it soon. The cultures you sent me were great! :)

OH MAN............I was just going to send you out a PM to share some ideas on shipping them during the winter months. We seem to be doing pretty well using the PCM gel pouches and heavier duty gel packs for the summer months. Who am I going to bounce my ideas off now :)

Zookeeper Doug, you bust me up! I laughed out loud at that little peek into the future!

Thanks and you are so right. It is time consuming and confusing to swap 8 pms back and forth, while talking to 9 other people, only to receive a PayPal payment with no Dendroboard name and no list of bugs ordered. I'm left to wonder, "Ahh, what do I do with this? :confused: Free money I guess", till I get a pm days later asking when bugs might go out. I wish I could start a web site, unfortunately, I am computer impaired. I never would have learned how to start a thread or post a pic if it weren't for Frogboy and my lovely daughter! I actually had a site built for my coral farm once. It was frustrating trying to get my webmaster to get off his butt and do anything.

I'll be back soon enough Gary. Winter is my slow season. It might only be a month. In either case, I've enjoyed discussing shipping methods with you and I'm still right here. I've actually wanted to discuss this with you... How about an inexpensive 60 hour heat pack set behind a pair of Phase 22 paks. The Phase paks would "buffer" the heat pack while the heat pak served to "supercharge" the phase paks.

Interesting.

I think the next few months will be the best months for shipping the bugs without any special precautions. As soon as the weather turns cold I'll start doing some testing on the smaller PCM gel pouches and also on the heavier duty PCM gel packs that I use. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks again everybody. Received several pm's about starting a list for when I start back up. There doesn't seem to be an efficient way to file pms in specific folders. Therefore, anybody wanting to be on a notification list for next shipping, please send an email to coralguy1 at yahoo dot com. (spelled out to help prevent spam)

See what happens when you get so many people hooked on your bugs? What goes around, comes around, as they say. :D

Just a little overdose, Jim. They say I'll be OK after a month or so in rehab.

You should know the Golden Rule - Dealers never use the stuff they sell to junkies. And, when you run out, you could lose a few who might die in their search for a substitute when they encounter a deadly toxin.

There's a lot of rattlers and cottonmouths down here in Florida and wrecklessly thrashing through the palmettos and carelessly turning over logs in a desparate search for something that resembles springtails and isopods can get you bit.

See the can of mealworms you've opened up.

I still want to see a picture of your pug on the rug.
