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.
Go to Shipping Advisory to see if there are any weather advisories for your area.

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.

    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?

    Most of my order was dead

    Posted by Garrett on May 30th 2020

    I ordered 250 crickets and about 30 of them are alive and not only that they are the complete wrong size, they are way too small.
    The order also got here really late, I now have to find another company to go and get crickets from right after receiving this box so my pet doesn't starve.

    Only received 30/100

    Posted by Samantha Harmon on May 22nd 2020

    I ordered 100 large crickets and only received 30. 10 were dead so now I have 20. Most of them are tiny too. Not enough to feed my chameleon. I'm furious. The stores around here are out and I don't know what I'm supposed to do. These are not large crickets and there is not nearly enough

    Buying live crickets on line

    Posted by Peter Silano on May 13th 2020

    Placed my 1st order Mon 5/11 at 3:30 PM and received it Wed 5/13 at 9:30 AM. That my friends is less than 48 hrs. Best is that they were all size I ordered, alive and active. No-one ever could ask for anything more. Would give them 10 stars if I could. Can say they now have a customer for ever.

    Need better QC

    Posted by WILLIAM BROWN on May 6th 2020

    I can't believe a company as big as Flukers sends out crickets the way they do. I understand that orders have picked up but sending out what has been sent to me 2 times back to back is embarrassing. This last time I took out 8 handfuls of dead or dried up crickets and still had more to clean out, ridiculous. Time to invest in a better QC team. I'll try 1 more time because I received a credit. We will see.

    Very happy

    Posted by Sydney Young on Apr 3rd 2020

    Once I figured out the correct age/size cricket I needed to order, I absolutely love this service! When I buy crickets from the store I water and feed them but I always end up killing A LOT. With Fluker's I leave the crickets in the box secured and very few end up dying. I am genuinely so happy with the convenience. And love the cricket/worm mix option. Thank you guys!!
