Our Premium Disease Free, Pest Free, Live Crickets. You choose the size!

  • Many cricket farmers have tried but few have succeeded in producing a cricket that is as healthy and hearty as ours.  We cut no corners when it comes to raising our crickets. If you ordered from other sources in the past, you will appreciate the pristine quality cricket and professional package that gets delivered to you.
  • Buy in bulk for an even better value.

Live Delivery Guarantee when following these guidelines:

  • Choose Winter Packaging if temperatures are below 50 and above 30.
  • No ordering of crickets if your transit night time temperatures are below 30 degrees (if you order, we will ship with no guarantee)
  • Selection of "Next Day Air" Shipping service (or Standard Shipping in GA, SC, Al)  if you order 1/8" or pinhead crickets

What if my crickets arrive dead?

  • When crickets get cold, they go into a dormant state.  Prior to calling us, heat your crickets up for around an hour and most times, they will come back to life.

How long can I keep my crickets alive?

  • The life span of a cricket is 8 to 10 weeks.  Your goal should be to order enough crickets to last you for around 1 month.
  • Try ordering more smaller crickets and let them grow into larger ones.  You'll find that your trip to Pet Smart to buy 12 cent each crickets will be over!
  • All of the products that you need to feed your cricket for that month can be found in our Kricket Complete Kit.  Getting creative with apples and oranges only leads to a smelly cricket container.

I just bought a Baby Bearded Dragon

  • If you have a baby Baby Bearded Dragon, the smallest cricket size you should choose is 1/4".

Got my crickets in the mail today and you are not kidding when you say your crickets are healthy! There were only 3 or 4 dead ones out of 1000!!! They are very active and leave no doubt as to how healthy they are. The ones I have been buying up until now pale in comparison and generally are half dead (literally) when I get them. I will definitely be back! :)

I know a lot of people don't take the time to communicate something unless it is negative. I am guilty of this myself. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for providing high quality crickets and doing so at a great price with prompt delivery.

Your extremely pleased customer,

: I just wanted to drop you guys an email regarding my experience with y'all. I am a first time owner of a bearded dragon that I rescued. She is extremely malnourished and is going to require a ton of attention. I can honestly say that because of you guys, I think she will make a full recovery in no time! Your customer service was impeccable! I believe I spoke with Allison after I made my first initial order ( which had some rookie mistakes). I only ordered 500 crickets and a few butterworms. She informed me immediately that the computer systems were a little behind, but to call back and she would handle it over the phone. As soon as I called back she was practically waiting for me. After a few minutes I nearly doubled my order to include a complete Cricket keeper tub/material, mealworms, and Phoenix worms. She made the corrections to my first order, and I just received all of it today not even a full 24 hours after purchase. As far ask the crickets go! They all look amazingly healthy! Only about 10 were D.O.A., but than again that is only 10 out of 500! That is right at or less than 2% .. Overall, I am EXTREMELY happy with my purchases! I will never order from another supplier! Thank you again for making this experience painless! Adam

I recieved my crickets on time and healthy, with the oder pack and cricket food, I put them all in a 10 gallon tank with a fine screen lid. my cricket tank had 3 water pillows and a low watt heat pad underneath. The crickets had their egg crates for hiding and yet after two weeks it seems about half the crickets are dead? i don't understnad what happened, they were all very hyper when I got them, I feed only about 20 crickets at a time, once a day to my two juvenile bearded dragons. Shouldn't my crickets have lasted at least month? I know they molt and grow, but many of the bodies were still full looking, not hollow husks? i don't know how many crickets to order now, i lik eordering a thousand at a time, but what good is that if half will keep dying on me? on the plus side, my lazy dragon is much more perky after eating these crickets.

Up until now I ordered my crickets from *those other guys* only to be disappointed time and time again. Today I received my first order of crickets from Prem. Crickets and man am I happy with my order.. Opened the box and the crickets were all jumping around and look very healthy. When i got crickets from *them* I had to wait for hours for the crickets to warm only to find that they werent going to get any warmer they were all dead.. Your crickets are awesome and the shipping time is an added bonus.. You have a new long time customer here and I will be referring all my friends to you.. thanks so much.. Dee, Jersey City, NJ...

I'm just writing to thank everyone at premiumcrickets.com for the wonderful service and product I received today. I placed my order on sunday evening, and my order arrived promptly tuesday morning, with all 2000 crickets alive and moving!(yes I looked though for dead crickets) On top of that the crickets looked blumped and health. The 1000 supers I ordered were also in great shape and again very healthy. This will keep my 3 beardies happy for a long time comng...Thanks guys for your wonderful service, you just gained a loyal customer!, Anthony from Maryland.
