Fluker Farms - Live Crickets

Selective Breeding - Crickets (Acheta domestica) from multiple farms throughout the country were mixed and bred for over 60 generations into a special strain called the “American Mix”. This is why our Acheta domestica have less mortality upon delivery and survive longer after they arrive, up to 8 weeks with proper care and nutrition.  We recommend a temperature range of 70-75F during the day and at night to keep their metabolism and immune system functioning properly. These insects are a rich source of protein and when gut loaded properly offer many other nutritional benefits to reptiles. Buy your reptile the best feeder insects for sale online today.

Crickets are available in sizes ranging from 1 week old (3/16 of an inch) to 6 weeks old (1 inch) and in box counts starting at 100. We also offer a 250ct 4 week old crickets and 250ct medium mealworms mixed box. This is a great way to help diversify your reptiles live insect diet. When ordering the mix, both will be packaged loose together in the same box. Looking for just mealworms?

Below is a video from our very own Dave Fluker showing you how to create a set up to house all of your insects in. Check out our YouTube channel for more feeder insect and reptile related content!

Live Delivery Guarantee Winter

Fluker Farms guarantees live delivery when temperatures are as low as 16 degrees at the destination and/or regional sort facilities during estimated transit times. While most insect growers simply refuse to ship at temperatures below this threshold, Fluker Farms recognizes how much you rely on live insect for your pet’s nourishment and feel you should have a choice in the matter. Therefore, we provide the following options when the weather drops to 0-15 degrees (we will not ship to any areas below 0 degrees).

1) Ship Without Guarantee (SWG)-You can choose to have your insects shipped when the night time temperatures are between 0-15 degrees by selecting the SWG option, however, we cannot guarantee live delivery and NO REFUND will be given for insects that do not arrive alive.
2) Hold For Weather (HFW)-If you choose the HFW option, your order may be held up to 7 days while we wait on improved shipping conditions. If after 7 days the weather doesn’t improve enough for your order to be shipped, it will be cancelled and any charges refunded.
For your convenience we offer a variety of shipping methods from Fedex and the United States Postal Service. Please choose the method that is best suited for the conditions in your area. Keep in mind that although Fluker Farms will replace any insects that do not arrive alive (subject to the extreme weather policy outlined above), Fluker Farms DOES NOT guarantee any shipping charges. All shipping charges are final and non refundable. Please inspect your packages upon delivery and contact us immediately with any problems. All live insect claims must be made within 2 business days of delivery. To request a claim, please fill out our credit request form. All claims will be processed within 2 business days.

Which shipping method should I choose?

We offer a wide variety of options for shipping your live insects. Using the chart above as reference, our customers can choose which shipping service will work best for them. It is important to take into account that transit times vary greatly between the different options. USPS First Class Mail can take up to 7 business days and Fedex Overnight is a one business day in transit service. What works well for some customers will not always work well for others. If it is during the hot summer months or cold winter months we recommend not using USPS First Class Mail because it is the slowest option and increases the risk of receiving your insects DOA. Make sure to check the weather, carefully taking into account transit time and places that your package will travel through. Also important to consider is the price between the shipping methods: USPS First Class Mail is the cheapest, Fedex Priority Overnight is the most expensive with many options in between. We try to provide as much information as possible but it is ultimately up to the customer to make the best choice based on weather and the quality of delivery services available to your area.

  • Crickets

    Usually my order comes with most crickets still alive. Past two orders not so good. Most recent order they were delivered a day earlier than the tracking said, on the coldest day of the week, and they were all in shock upon arrival. Only half survived.

  • Crickets

    Posted by Heather DeVaisher on Feb 16th 2018

    I've been ordering crickets from here the past couple of times & they are usually OK. My last order had approx. 50-100 dead and my order before that had a live SPIDER in it... Now I am always cautious when opening the boxes! I just placed another order, so hopefully this one is better or I will be contacting customer service regarding these issues.

  • Healthy and fast delivery but beware

    Posted by Michelle on Feb 7th 2018

    I ordered live crickets for my bearded dragon and they were delivered within 2 days, crickets were alive and in good health BUT they were just out in the tin can they were packaged in. I assumed they would be in a plastic bowl or something but they were just loose so be prepared. I can only imagine the horror for people who order roaches.

  • Very low live count compared to order

    Posted by AG on Feb 2nd 2018

    Ordered 500 crickets, got about 120 live crickets, 20 feeder worms and 20 flying beetles (from the worms?). Not worth the cost of shipping to buy from here.


    Posted by Josie Fonseca on Jan 25th 2018

    great product and packaging. Crickets came alive and I have five happy lizards.

  • Never know what you will get

    Posted by Jessica Cook on Jan 10th 2018

    I have ordered 2 times now. My first time I ordered 100 crickets, I got 75 dead crickets. They gave me a credit. I wasn't happy at all since I thought this would solve my weekly pet store trip. I forgot I signed up for the subscription so I got my 2nd box. Only about 20-25 dead this time. And to me it doesn't seem like there was 100 crickets in there no way to count them so I do feel ripped off again. Normally not a person that complains or does bad reviews. I'd like to hope that weather is a factor and maybe in spring and summer more will come alive. Also I think I am going to try once more and at more numbers. So hopeful to not have to go to the petstore all the time.

  • Expected More

    Posted by Lani on Oct 29th 2017

    I bought 500 crickets.. first time buying from Fluker Farm i did expect a lot.. was disappointed that out of 500 there was only about 200 alive. The shipping was nice arrived within 5 days of ordering.. I didn’t like the packing, considered I wanted to transfer them into a different tank.. and the packing if you up it the crickets can/will bounce out. Expected a lot more.

  • Smaller sized crickets are great!

    Posted by Preston Durieux on Oct 23rd 2017

    All of the smaller sizes we've ordered we've never had a problem. Always healthy and active. Order 1000 at a time without issue. The large ones on the other hand not son much. Yes, they arrive healthy, but I am not getting what I'm paying for. I ordered 250 on my last batch and received maybe 100.

  • Awesome

    Posted by Sean on Sep 17th 2017

    Always fast delivery. The little worms with them are cleaners. They eat the dead skin from crickets shed. I saw a few bad reviews because of this. I personally prefer to get a few with my order

  • Excellent Customer Service

    Posted by Elisa Llamido on Sep 13th 2017

    I have been ordering crickets from Fluker Farms for the past 6 months or so. There was a problem with my my recent order and I contacted them to let them know. They just wrote back to let me know that they are sending a replacement order today. I could not be happier with the service and will continue to use them and refer others. Highly recommended!

    Only four star because some of them were dead. Which makes sense being shipped in the mail.

  • Best crickets

    Posted by Randi on Aug 10th 2017

    I purchased a 4-5 week old bearded dragon a month ago, and had originally started out buying the crickets from the pet store until I realized how much I would be spending in the long run. I couldn't be more satisfied with the quality of crickets I received. My bearded dragon looks much more lively and healthier than when I was feeding him pet store crickets, and he'll hunt them with much more speed and ferocity than he did before. I will definitely continue to purchase my crickets from here!

  • Best crickets!

    Posted by Haley on Aug 9th 2017

    I was worried because it was around 110 in Idaho and didn't get the crickets for three days. To my surprise they came all alive, and STAYED ALIVE FOR THE WHOLE MONTH I NEEDED THEM! I fed them water but not much else. These are the best crickets! The only negative thing I can say is that when I opened up my crickets a brown recluse spider hitched a ride with them. I spotted him in time though.

  • i love fluker's

    Posted by Samantha on Jul 19th 2017

    i just got my first order of 1000 crickets. they are ALL ALIVE and well. zero dead. awesome! ALL MY CRICKET NEEDS WILL BE FROM FLUKER'S. i wish i could give more than 5 stars!!!

  • great and quick

    Posted by Diane Thompson on Jul 7th 2017

    No complaints but I'd like to set up for an every other month order for 1/2" crickets with regular postage. Thanks

  • Good crickets, great service

    Posted by Bossk the Bearded Dragon on Jun 28th 2017

    I've had several orders from Fluker's because of their great pricing. The crickets are usually healthy and live for a while. Last time about 50/250 were dead, and upon a request for a partial refund, I was given a full refund for the entire purchase. Great customer service. Thanks.

  • They died off quickly

    Posted by Carole on Jun 28th 2017

    Not sure what the problem was but 1000 didnt last two weeks. Disappointed. I keep crickets all the time and these died off very quickly. For what I paid to use maybe 200 i might as well go to petsmart

  • Ordered 1000, received 500

    Posted by Travis Bell on Jun 22nd 2017

    I usually order 500 crickets for my bearded dragon and was never disappointed with how many I got. So, I decided to order 1000 for a better deal. However, I feel I received substantially less than I ordered. I feed my bearded dragon on average 60 crickets a day. In one weeks time I noticed that only roughly 40 crickets remain. Ordering 1000 crickets should have lasted about two weeks.

  • 100 2 week crickets

    Posted by Hailee on Jun 21st 2017

    My crickets came with weird little caterpillars and I've never had that with any other place I've ordered from.

  • Quality

    Posted by Randi Smith on Jun 21st 2017

    Another great buy and my Bearded Dragons love them. Quality is awesome and the cost is even better..

  • 250 live Crickets

    Posted by Samantha on Jun 21st 2017

    Only a few didn't make it. I'll be ordering more tomorrow. Thank you.

    All showed up dead on arrival now hope mantis don't die

  • Lively crickets

    Posted by Shawna T on Jun 20th 2017

    Very happy with my order. Crickets arrived and all were alive and kicking except maybe one or two. Didn't matter much since my leopard gecko isn't finicky

    Posted by charles on Jun 20th 2017

    I have been ordering from fluker's for a while for my bearded and cresty.. they always come thru, even in the winter when I had 1 package come in and 1/2 was dead (yea I had it for pick up) they got me sorted with 0 hassle.. love it, will keep getting my crickets here. thanks fluker's!!!


    Posted by Scott on Jun 20th 2017

    The crickets I received were ok. A lot of them were dead and there was a hole in my packaging I only received about 100 of the 250 I ordered.

  • Great purchase

    Posted by Kaitlyn Shuba on Jun 20th 2017

    I received my crickets very quickly and 99% of them were alive and lasted until I fed them to my beardie. Packaging is great and easy to trasnfer to a bigger container. I've also ordered the cockroaches and those always arrive alive and healthy and my beardie LOVES them!

  • Crickets

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 20th 2017

    Most crickets were alive. A couple did not survive when I opened the can. Good experience.

  • 1/2" crickets

    I ordered them to hear chirping at told me they should start when they are approx. 6 weeks I am still waiting.....cannot rate my purchase yet

    None were dead and it came really fast

  • Crickets

    Posted by beardie mama on Jun 19th 2017

    So much better then going to the store every day, crickets always come one time, usually a day earlier then expected. Price can't be beat, plus crickets are always in good condition. For some reason i noticed these crickets are a lot livelier than the ones from the store , which actually makes my beardie chase his food. Very happy , returning customer.

  • All died within a day

    Posted by Garrett McMahon on Jun 18th 2017

    Put them all in my cricket terrarium w/ access to food and warmth. All of them were dead the next day. Hadn't had problems with Flukers crickets until now.

  • 100 count 6 week crickets

    Posted by Jordan Gross on Jun 17th 2017

    Beetles flew out of the container upon opening it, and most of the Crickets died after 3 days of delivery. I expected only 2 weeks out of these crickets but.... not even that long .

    Quick ship, almost all were in good condition. Price and product way better than competitors.

  • Cricket

    Posted by Tim Rickman on Jun 15th 2017

    The screen on the box had a pencil size hole in it upon delivery. Of the 500 ordered, only about 40 were in the box. After calling customer service, another box is being sent. However, I had to pay the almost $7 delivery charge. If it happens again, it will not be worth my efforts to order from Fluker's anymore.

    Posted by Sean Anderson on Jun 15th 2017

    Great quality crickets. I have bought them from pet stores before and your crickets are heads above them. With care they survive well over 8 weeks.

  • Live crickets

    Posted by Christi Sheppard on Jun 15th 2017

    Crickets are good and very few die but my last two orders have not had the 250 crickets I ordered. There have been much less in the box.

  • Live crickets

    Posted by Karen Lee on Jun 15th 2017

    I am happy with this purchase and will probably reorder.

  • Crickets

    Posted by Jennifer on Jun 15th 2017

    My rating is a 3 because my experience was a little disappointing. I had ordered a 3/8" cricket and I received some larger ones. Also, a big majority of them didn't make it which is expected of some to not but a big fraction of them wasn't good. So really I paid for a third of what I got. :/

  • 1/4" crickets

    Posted by Dennis Edwards on Jun 14th 2017

    Super fast shipping, all crickets arrived alive and well.

  • Crickets / 1000 / Large

    Posted by Richard Obenschain on Jun 14th 2017

    I have waited for my fourth order before I rated my experience with Fluker. This is simply to ensure consistency. They are quite consistent.

    My crickets have been accurately counted, sized well, and most have been alive upon arrival. ( They are living creatures, not all will survive )

    I order mine in quantities of 1000 and I pay for overnight shipping. These are sold at a good price from a dependable distributor. There is no reason not to pay for overnight delivery on something that is alive. The longer it takes to get to you, the more that die along the way.

    I will continue to use these guys, as they have made my life considerably easier when it comes to taking care of my reptiles and arachnids.

  • Medium Crickets

    Posted by Marisa Pessenda on Jun 14th 2017

    All crickets arrived alive and well. I will continue to order. Thank you.

    Half of the crickets were dead when I got them then the rest dies within 3 days.

  • Live crickets

    Posted by Jessica peset on Jun 13th 2017

    Perfect for the price, all alive, only issue is packing, hard to transfer to another container, as soon as I opened the box they started jumping out! Thank God for my Guard dogs who killed them as soon as they escaped!

  • Fast delivery, as expected

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 13th 2017

    The crickets came as expected with the correct size. I was so surprised with how quickly they came even just using the regular postal service. I will definitely reorder from this company.
