Have you tried Rainbow Mealworms? If you have, maybe list the places you've looked at, so we can see if anyone has one you didn't try. :0)

Hooray! I was just looking at ovipost for roaches (but they're out of stock), and their prices looked good. I get bugs in excellent condition from rainbow as well

Georgia/Premium crickets and Armstrong crickets are in Georgia. They are reputable suppliers and may be closer to you,

I live in Florida and I've had very good luck with Rainbow. I see CooperDragon knows of some places in Georgia, so I may see if they do any better, but FWIW, nearly everywhere I get crickets or worms from (Rainbow, Josh's Frogs), has been across the country from here, and they've always arrived alive and in excellent condition, even with sitting in my driveway for a few hours before I get home from work.
