Rated 4 out of 5 by from The large crickets are pretty small, but it doesn't really matter to me because my leopard get goes, enjoy them also, I was wondering, how many crickets can I get for 25 dollars looking to start breeding them and keeping them in a bucket and feeding them so they can grow so I can just feed them out of that bucket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great crickets I have a leopard gecko and he loves them!!! And they are very cheap, the only negative thing I would say about them is the size there just a little small.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not satisfied The large are rarely large and good luck keeping them alive more than a few days. These "large-medium" crickets are so small they can get out of their cage through the top hood vents. The prepacked boxes are full of dead crickets but you can't see them until you get them out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very upset customer I just drove 2 hours for 240 crickets. Got there and they had prepackaged only, 24 in a pack for 3.36. Couldn’t see in the pack because cardboard cover. Drove 2 hours home after spending 35.00 on crickets to find every one of the 10 boxes I bought had 5 or less. Some had only 2 in the whole box and not even any dead ones. I’m beyond upset. Considering the 40 in gas, I just paid 1.66 per cricket. We never count cause no one has time for that but with individual packs that were pretty much empty it wasn’t hard. Check out this unopened pack about 6 in the box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the worst I buy 50 every other week for my beardie. He enjoys them, and they're cheap. I keep them in a separate tank with Flukers Calcium Cricket Quencher and some toilet paper rolls and feed him every other day. I would recommend them to a friend. They can be kind of small but that's all right, because when prepared and served properly the nutrition value stays the same.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible quality The last time I purchase these they threw a free roach… not something I wanted. The large crickets are the size of most small cricket at reptile shops.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A lot of loss I bought 30 small crickets, the girl said that she gave me 35 due to the large loss that was in the cricket habitat at the store. I came straight home, maybe a 5 minute drive, they went into the cricket carrier with Fluker’s Cricket Quencher. By the next day there were probably 10 dead and a few each day after that. In other words I payed for 30 and got less than 20 to feed.

Hello, I'm doing an edible bug project for school and I was wondering if your crickets could be eaten safely by a human.

Asked by: Beane
I do not think this would be a very good source of crickets for human consumption as most crickets sold at pet store are cared for vary poorly and are not in the best of health and are often kept in a very unsanitary environment.

how big exactly are these small live crickets? Also are the crickets $0.13 each or for a pack of them? I am getting a sling tarantula that is 1/2 and inch so i am wondering if these small crickets will be to big. Thanks! <3

Asked by: jkiera789
It will be fifteen cents per cricket. Also the crickets would be to big for your tarantula , they are half an inch,but fruit flies would be a better option for your pet tarantula.They are smaller,and don't actually fly.

Do they chirp? 

Asked by: Msk5467
Yes they do, if you want something that makes no noise and has no smell you are better off with Dubai roaches. Plus over all, they are healthier than crickets and they don't need as much care.
