A good source of online insects is http://www.reptilefood.com
If you order several boxes at once, that brings shipping cost per box way down. Freeze on arrival - you can order boxes of crickets and mealworms or zophobas worms in one order, they all freeze just fine.

I'm a little bit of a worrier so this helps. 51 degrees today and 15mph winds. However, yesterday it was 70 and tomorrow it will be 62 so I won't worry about today. Second year with Martins so I want to make sure all goes well
