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. 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. 

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.

    Hardly any alive

    Posted by Wes Dantzler on Dec 28th 2021

    I ordered these for 6 months while I was away and had a friend taking care of my chameleon. Continuously, each shipment, only about 10% of the crickets arrived alive. Disgusting waste of money and surely unhealthy for the crickets and my chameleon. I basically had no other alternative, but this was an awful waste and I recommend to no one.

    Troy is the best guy in the whole world! I came in to buy crickets but they don't sell from a store. Troy put me and my family in the golf cart for a tour of their facility, wow is all I can say! Troy didn't have to but gave me some crickets and waxworms until my order arrived. Good Louisiana company, and they feed their employees! Quality insects that last. They go above and beyond the call of duty! TROY UR THE MAN!!!!!

    250 crickets for under $10. $30 for next day shipping through UPS. These prices beat pet stores. I purchased the 3/16 one week. I find them to be more efficient than what you can buy locally. You can gut load them to make them healthier for your pet. There is a video on this site to inform you on how to do so. They love to explore and not just hide. Growing so fast. Thank you Fluker Farms ♥️

    250 crickets for less than $10. That is a great deal. $30 for next day shipping through UPS. These prices beat what you’d pay at a pet store. Not only that, you can raise them yourself, gut loading them to make them healthier for your pet. I found the quality of the crickets to be more efficient then what you can purchase locally. I bought the 3/16 one week crickets. Couldn’t be happier. They love to explore and not just hide.

    2 orders have arrived dead

    Posted by Monica Wheeler on Sep 17th 2021

    Absolute worst place to get crickets!!!! It is inhumane to ship live animals in a cylindrical tube for a week in the heat with no source of moisture or food. This is the second time I have received 1000 absolutely DEAD baby crickets. The company should not be allowed to ship any animals this way. The mail is running much slower than it used to and the shipping method they use allows the mail carrier to put the animals inside of the mailbox. I explained this to the Fluker people last time my shipment arrived dead and I called the list office. Other companies I have ordered from ship on boxes with holes cut and screened so the animals have fresh air and they put a moisture source in the box and they ship 2 day delivery. This tube was in transit fir nearly a week.

    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!
