In Reply to: How many of you punch holes in the box before shipping? posted by Tribal Propagation on April 23, 2002 at 20:01:29:

not to mention, there is probably plenty of air inside the box even if it was in an airtight container for a reptile to make it overnight. i use holes sometimes, sometimes i dont. for winter shipping i usually dont to keep the heat from the heatpacks in. my usps person explained to an other employee in front of me that you dont use airholes for lizards to keep temp control.
sorry you are getting razzed by your customers for something you would obviously know more about than them.

: We would just like to know how many people actually ship with huge holes punched in the outside of the shipping boxes? We have had tons of things sent to us without holes, and we also ship without putting holes in boxes. A cardboard box that has only been taped along the bottom and top folding flap is NOT airtight! Yet we still have some customers complaining after getting their shipment about us trying to kill the animals by putting them in an airtight box. This is just ridiculous. We would like to know how other feel!
