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
Feeder Crickets are available in sizes ranging from 1 week old (3/16 of an inch) to 6 weeks old adults (1 inch) and in quantities starting at 100.

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.

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. 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.

    Great quality, service, and price

    Posted by Kent on Apr 30th 2022

    The crickets are high quality, and the price can't be beat. Even with the cost of overnight delivery, I pay less overall than I would at a local pet store and the crickets are in much better shape. The customer service with Fluker's is ALWAYS amazing. I highly recommend these people and this business. I've been using them for years. I live in New England and ship all the way from Louisiana.

    Crickets

    Posted by Lori Colby on Apr 27th 2022

    Very healthy, great price and quick delivery. Yes, some may not be alive when you receive them but the majority do. I'm always satisfied with my purchases from Flukers.

    Crickets

    Posted by Jenesis Emory on Apr 26th 2022

    Great customer service. We had an order with not all crickets making it (during a non freeze) and they sent new ones immediately. Good sized for what I ordered and haven’t heard my Beardie complain yet.

    Live Crickets

    Posted by Kris on Apr 25th 2022

    I have tried ordering from multiple cricket farms over the years, and Fluker's has always been the best. The crickets arrive healthy, and stay healthy longer than any other farm I tried. Their subscription service is also great, with many options to suit my needs (frequency, shipping methods, etc.). Another thing I greatly appreciate is when there is bad weather in their area, they notify you of possible delays allowing me to temporarily make arrangements so my many reptiles and arachnids did not go hungry! I would give more than 5 stars if I could!

    Another bug was sent with crickets

    Posted by Samantha on Feb 22nd 2022

    I've ordered from fluckers few times and their crickets are great! But I had noticed each time they came, there was an unknown species (to me) of a bug that came with them. I've never seen this kind of insect/bug in my life and definitely don't want it to come to my home again.

    Half Dead

    Posted by Michelle on Feb 18th 2022

    it looks like i got almost half the crickets alive. the container was pretty cluttered so there were like chunks of dead crickets bunch together so i had to take the alive ones out. took like 6 days to get here so maybe if i lived closer there would be more alive? :(

    All Dead

    Posted by Seth on Feb 9th 2022

    I was initially really excited to have an easier way to get crickets, but was disappointed when all them arrived dead. I waited for my second order and they were all dead again... I assumed a few would die, but not 100%. I cancelled my subscriptions. I'm sure if you live within a days shipping they come alive, but these buggers did not :( Just really disappointed. I don't think they should offer 7 day shipping if none of them are going to live OR maybe they could put come food or water in there? Idk but somethings off. one love <3

    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.
