A new size of crickets, perfect for keepers of Dendrobatids and small geckos, is available now. The new ‘mini’ cricket, is a 5-6 day old house brown cricket that is larger than a ‘micro’ but smaller than a ‘small’. This means the insects are slightly more robust and the optimal size for poison frogs, which represents an increasingly popular area of exotics keeping.  Approx 400 per tub.  We would recommend ordering these instead of micro and are pleased to confirm they are covered by our standard live arrival guarantee.

The following are non-standard sizes, allow an extra day for despatch

Size Instar Reg Tub Quantity Bulk
XL 20-30mm 7 25 Bag of 500
Micro 1-3 1 500 N/a

*Micro crickets are too small for the vast majority of species, they are excluded from our live arrival guarantee.  Please consider our new mini size.

Note on species: "Silent" is not a literal term, all crickets make some noise, larger sizes are supplied as g.assimilis and will be less noisy than other cricket species.  Smaller sizes are g.assimilis or acheta subject to production.


Live Arrival Guarantee

We want you to be confident your live-food will arrive fresh and live... the insects we post for on the overwhelming majority of orders do just that.

If that happens, don't panic: simply email us a photo showing the problem, within 24 hours of receipt, we'll replace them free of charge. It really is that simple.

*excludes orders where you have been unavailable to take the delivery on the first delivery attempt or have delivery rescheduled for a later date .
