Fluker Farms - Live Crickets

Ordering Live Feeder Crickets in the winter.  During the winter months, we recommend checking our shipping information page before ordering live crickets or any other live insects. Cold temperatures can greatly impact the odds of receiving your crickets live and healthy. See our Live Delivery Guarantee before placing your order.

Selective Breeding - Crickets (Acheta domesticus) 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?

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.

    I have had to start ordering 500 count boxes due to 1/4-1/3 bring dead upon arrival. As disappointing as this is the cost of Flucker Farms crickets are still cheaper than going to our local pet store as well as the added convenience of not running to the store every two weeks. Which is why I give 3 stars (average)

    Crickets keep arriving dead

    Posted by Chad Krause on Aug 1st 2020

    Each week is a struggle to get crickets as they are arriving dead almost every time now with the USPS shipping and the FedEx shipping option is not affordable. Waiting on replacement orders was ok at first, but when my crickets are now arriving dead on Friday and customer service is conveniently closed all weekend I can't even get the replacements in a timely manner anymore and my pets are going hungry, which is not acceptable. Doesn't look like Flukers is ever going to get the issues with USPS worked out, yet USPS is the only affordable shipping option offered. Extremely disappointed that after being a customer for almost two years, Flukers cannot provide reliable service anymore and it looks like I will have to switch suppliers.

    Such great customer service

    Posted by Eva on Jul 22nd 2020

    Such great customer service. I had a problem with a shipment. Renee promptly emailed me back and resolved my issue. We have a baby bearded dragon. He so looks forward to his shipment arriving. He recognizes the package and jumps on his favorite rock when he sees it. He immediately goes into cricket hunting mode. Thanks yall. Keep up the good work. Thanks Renee. You are awesone.

    Posted by Elizabeth Colon on Jul 18th 2020

    The grand majority of crickets were dead on arrival. They got here today the worms came fine in a well vented box very disappointed in the can of crickets, expected more to be alive if it was guaranteed weather I even paid extra for faster shipping.

    Live cricket order

    Posted by Lisbeth on Jul 14th 2020

    First time I ordered crickets from this place I had to replace everything because ants came in with the shipment. Called them and they replaced all the crikets instantly. Second time they came ok but more mealworms than crickets. Third time I ordered 3/8 crikets with no mealworms and they sent pinhead crickets hard to find. And the least amount of crickets I've received. My husband and I counted roughly 150 even though the order was for 250.

    Never ordering from here again!

    mush and slime

    Posted by Thomas Kole on Jul 10th 2020

    Do not buy from these people! I have had multiple instances where either the customer service was terrible or there was something wrong with the crickets. I was put on a cycle ordering system where they send crickets every week. There have been a lot of times where they either forget to ship the order or don’t send it at all. When I tried to call them they said they were trying to fix the system and would send me my regular batch the next week. Sure enough they didn’t even bother sending that one either. There have also been times the crickets were dead. Most recently I got my package of crickets late AGAIN, and when I open the package I find that there aren’t crickets but instead a slime like mush that once were crickets. The smell stunk up the entire room. When I tried calling them TWICE at their office hours displayed on the website. It said that their office was closed. I gave them a message and told them that this was the last straw and that I have given them enough chances and that I would be making this review if they wouldn’t answer my emails or calls so here I am. I’ve had so many bad encounters with this company I’m going to buy from someone else because anyone is better than fluker farms and I have either always had problems with them giving me my packages I paid for or the crickets aren’t even alive when they actually do appear at my house. Here are some pictures of what you’re getting when you order from here...

    PS: I’ve noticed the pictures have better quality on the google docs app

    Recurring Order

    Posted by Adam Lang on Jul 8th 2020

    I've bought crickets at least a dozen times here now, and I am usually satisfied. Occasionally I get a box with a higher mortality rate (25% or more), but usually that's because delivery did something wrong. Once I learned how to take care of them, I had a lot less die off like some are writing about.

    The shipping was fast and good, only 20 dead out of 1000. But the at least half the he Crickets were dead in the next week. We did everything to keep them alive, but they just kept dying on us

    Dead "live" crickets

    Posted by Ayla Thompson on Jun 4th 2020

    I ordered a LIVE cricket farm, which consisted of 100 two week old crickets, and minutes after receiving the package I opened it and every single one was dead. My crested gecko will only eat live crickets, not dead ones, so I am very disappointed. Is this a common problem? What can I do to get a refund/ actual live crickets?
