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.

OPTIONS
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. Looking for alternative feeder insects? We also offer 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?  Feeding small reptiles or frogs? Consider ordering a live Flightless Fruit Flies Culture.

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. 
 
SHIPPING INFORMATION

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.

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.

    Excellent quality

    Posted by Adrienne Albritton on Jul 13th 2021

    I love the convenience of ordering the exact size crickets my bearded dragon needs as he develops and grows. Through Fluker Farm’s, I know that I am feeding my pet great quality feeder insects and feel confident about his digestive tract. They also have outstanding customer care too!

    My beardie will only eat live crickets..

    Posted by Meagan Chadek on Jun 29th 2021

    They arrived! My beardie and I anxiously opened the jar together. Thankfully there were a few alive ones he could eat right away. But unfortunately my beardie is extremely picky and won’t eat anything dead…and 98% of the crickets arrived dead. The weather was great and warm, not too hot. So I figured it would be safe to order them online. I know crickets are finicky but I figured I’d give ordering them online a try anyway. Just a heads up if you have a picky reptile that only eats live bugs, I wouldn’t order these. If they don’t mind dead ones, I’d say go for it! the price is great! The other things I ordered came mostly alive so he wasn’t too angry about the crickets, but now I know for future orders.

    Live Crickets

    Posted by Brittany Sweet on Jun 29th 2021

    This service is awesome! It was my first time ordering crickets online and I will be signing up for weekly deliveries now. All crickets were alive and well when they showed up and all the correct size (No little tiny ones). They also came super fast which was great because I had been out of crickets for almost a week! Needless to say, Fluker's is awesome!

    amount of crickets

    Posted by rey tamminen on Jun 13th 2021

    every week we order 250 3/8” crickets and my lizard LOVES them, but we don’t get as many crickets as we order. when we feed him, we count the amount of crickets he eats so he doesn’t overeat (we count until 40). he runs out of crickets in 2-3 days, meaning we only get 80-120 crickets per order and not 250.

    Good quality, some problems though

    Posted by Graciela Bustamante on Jun 1st 2021

    This was my QST time buying online, my neighborhood petstore was getting pricey with Gerald (our bearded dragon) growing so much and eating about 45-60 small crickets a day. I liked that I was able to purchase so many, but here were the issues: 1.) Some (a lot) arrived dead, but it still saved me money, I paid $18 for 500 and I would pay $18 for 200 locally. I have fed Gerald at least 4 days and still have quite a bit left. 2.) There were other insects in the box, 3 small black worms and some fruit flies. 3.) There were at least 5 huge crickets that scared the beegeezus out of me as I tried to get them out of the canister. 4.) I live where it is pretty hot right now 100° and it will get hotter through August and humid so, I might have to really contemplate if ordering will be a good idea. But, when it gets fresher I would probably order again.

    Posted by Kevin S on May 29th 2021

    This company has great customer service. Not getting into detail but my order got screwed up (probably unintentionally mistake), but without hesitations, my order was fixed and just got my crickets in the mail today. 99% alive! I can now start my cricket colony. Thank you!

    pandemic BS

    Posted by jeff kris on Dec 22nd 2020

    just like all the other company exploiting this bogus pandemic, now crickets are shortage. consider, breeding crickets is about the easiest thing to do. from laying the eggs to 1inch size. its about 6 to 8 weeks, so explain how their can be a shortage? very disappointed with the exploiting of this. 2 other online cricket farmers have no problem selling you a 1000 so long.
