Fluker Farms - Live Crickets

Ordering Live Feeder Crickets in the winter.  Now that winter weather has begun, 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 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.

    Not one cricket in my 100 cricket can - Completely Empty

    Posted by Ashley Zink on Jul 6th 2018

    I have been ordering 100 1 week crickets every week to avoid the terrible service at the local pet stores. This shipment, I didn't hear anything inside of the can, I opened it and there was NOT ONE cricket. There was egg carton, one little beetle and a dead worm, no cricket, not even a dead one. I am extremely disappointed and will not be ordering again. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Hissing Cockroaches

    They made me perfect! I was afraid to order during summer but I am using them for my classroom and a summer class. The hissing cockroaches arrived quickly and alive! Great company!

    Not worth it

    Posted by Lindsey Childs on Jun 20th 2018

    I’ve ordered crickets twice now, the 250 count each time. The first order I got *maybe* a little over 100. I didn’t count but they only lasted me 3 days. I hoped it was an accident and ordered again just to be sure. This time I counted every single cricket in the box one by one and was short by over 75. I contacted support the first time, addressing not only the shortage but also the inability to amend a recurring order and only the recurring order was addressed. The shortage was completely ignored. This time I don’t even care, I’m just done. I’ll buy my crickets elsewhere. I expected more from such a big brand name.

    They always made things right. I judge a company by the way they handle issues or complaints. NO questions just refunded my money or offered to do a partial. Even when it was beyond their control

    1000 crickets

    Posted by Jodi Buskohl on Jun 7th 2018

    Ordered my first ever online crickets. When I first saw the 6x6 inch box I was surprised to see so many crickets and was afraid to open it. But I opened it outside to be safe, inside of a large tote. Not a single dead cricket. And I just transferred the egg crates into the tote and gave them some water crystals and food. Easy! My 3 month old bearded dragon loves them, and even with overnight shipping it came out to about .45 cents per dozen. Not bad at all! will order again.

    1000 crickets

    Posted by Phil on May 21st 2018

    I always got my 1000 crickets at a reptile show, tried Flukers for 1000 crickets...most were alive, so that's good, but when I dumped them out, I must have had 15-20 beetle looking things and about 10 worms...never had additional insects from the reptile show...Crickets lasted about a week less than what I am used to, so I will be going back to the show, or trying a different online place to ship from.

    What is going on with Fluker's?

    Posted by Lonnie Davis on May 12th 2018

    I have been a long time customer of Fluker Farms and a year ago Fluker's was amazing, but lately crickets are arriving dead and/ or looking sick. Over a year ago I was able to keep 3/4 inch crickets alive for months until they were all fed off to my animals, but this year the crickets I order don't last long at all with no change in shipping method (USPS Priority or First Class) or care upon arrival. I hesitate to feed them to my animals now. Something has changed at Fluker's and I hope they figure it out otherwise I will have to find another cricket supplier.
