The highest quality crickets on the market!
Crickets are not as easy to grow as one might think. The secret lies in
the ability of the grower to provide a 'Stress Free' growing environment.
If you put too many crickets in a brooder, they stress - if the temperatures are
too hot or cold, they stress - if there are parasites (like the Black Larva Beetle),
they stress - if there isn't enough food or water, they stress - you get the picture.
When you buy crickets from any source, ask if they got rid of the beetles and
worms from their farm. These insects are naturally attracted to crickets and
bring disease to the crickets (which transfers to you pets). A very common
pest found in cricket farms is the black "Wooley worm" (or Black Larva Beetle).
The Wooley Worm feeds off the cricket and can eventually overtake the farm.
They pose the greatest challenge to the cricket farmer.
We are one of the few cricket farms in the United States who employ growing techniques
that significantly reduced pests and disease - including the Wooley worm.
I was just emailing you to comment on the quality of your crickets. They are
awesome!!! I have personally been feeding crickets to my reptiles for about 6
years now and have ordered from all of the largest cricket breeders. But i have
found out that the cheaper crickets from the bigger cricket farm breeders are
just as that, not as healthy and full of bugs other than that of crickets (ie.
wooly bugs, spiders, beetles, etc.).
A healthy cricket, like yours Mike, do not carry all of these extra parasites
for which I am grateful. Every box seems to have at least a 10% overfill. Since
I have started feeding your crickets I have noticed that my reptiles are
healthier and for this I thank you. Please keep up the great work and I will
tell everyone about you.
The Absolute Best Place to Grow Crickets
To grow crickets successfully, you need the proper blend of temperature and humidity.
Crickets breath through their skin (exoskeleton) and if there is not enough humidity
they stress and die prematurely. Too much humidity and they tend to be prone
Crickets love warmer temperatures. The ideal temperature range is from
80 to 90 degrees. In central Georgia, we enjoy warm temperatures with ample
humidity to grow your cricket in a healthy and happy manner.
I’ve been ordering crickets from you for the past several months. My daughter
has a bearded dragon and makes me promise to order only from you. She stands over
my shoulder when I’m placing the order online to make sure I only visit your website....
You’ve been “bookmarked”.
Your crickets ALWAYS arrive when promised, and are ALWAYS in great condition.
I’d also like to thank you for the comprehensive videos and tutorials online which
have shown her how to care for the crickets. We have increased our orders from 250
to 1,000 as we’ve gained confidence in caring for them. You make it easy, and at
10 years old, she is caring for her animal like a pro.
Thanks again for being the most reliable online supplier we’ve had the pleasure
to deal with.
Same great service for the Large and Individual Customers
There are bigger cricket farms out there, but our customers tell us that our product and service is working well for them.
I would like to say how much my coworkers and I appreciate the service you and your company have provided during the last couple of years that we've been working with you. As you know, my lab has hundreds of amphibians that we must feed daily. We initially assumed that a large supplier like Fluker's or Southern Cricket would be the only ones capable of meeting our high demand, but it turned out that those vendors provided terrible service and a sub-par product. Sometimes it seemed like we were ordering fruit flies and wooly worms instead of crickets!
Once we switched over to you, these problems pretty much went away. The crickets you provided were lively and always numerous, and came with little or no pest insects at all. I'm personally very thankful that you always cleared up the rare errors that occurred, and you did so promptly and never though to charge us extra for it. As far as I'm concerned, your company is the best supplier this lab has ever had, and I suspect you will be providing us with crickets for a very long time!
Thanks so much,

Slow Grown Crickets
Many of our customer comment on how "hearty" our crickets are. We know
if we put a lot of protein in the cricket's food, we'll get a cheaper cricket to
produce - but one that will die on you quicker. We grow our crickets real
slow so you'll have the healthiest product for your reptile.
I just wanted to tell you that your company is awesome. I rec'd my order today
and all of the crickets were alive. I rec'd my 1000 crickets and the 100 phoenix
worms. And you included the 500 from the problem with my last order. You guys are
great. I couldn't ask for better service. I have told everyone I know about your
company. I hope that it generates a lot of business for you. You guys deserve it.
Thank you so much for everything!! Talk to ya next month for my next order!!
When you place your order with Premium Crickets you won't have to worry about
the crickets that get injured in shipment. We put between 10 and 15 percent
more crickets in each shipment FREE.
I just wanted to provide you some feedback. I have three Gecko's and a Bearded
Dragon that I purchased back in November of last year. Needless to say I go through
a ton of Crickets, and getting them at PetSmart was really expensive, so I tried
mail order to reduce my cost. I placed two orders with you. Both were received on
time with very little dead loss. Of course rough count the dead loss was more than
covered as it appears you put about 600-650 crickets in the 500 counts. Not bad
considering only 10-20 were dead.
So for my third order I figured I might as well try your competition in my area.
Well about all I can say is they cost a little extra and that cost probably pays
for their nice little box that advertises their business instead of a plain brown
cricket box. Their crickets came to me with 400 live at best. AND they have been
the WORST smelling batch of crickets from the moment I opened the box. I keep the
crickets pretty clean but no matter how clean I kept them they STUNK!
I've tried your competition and they stink! (pun intended) You've got my business
from now on! Why try buying from someone else when you're getting quality with your
current supplier! Thank you so much from us that your crickets don't stink!
Guaranteed Live Arrival
On rare occasions, shipments get lost or your crickets arrive dead. If
your entire shipment arrives dead, we
will replace, at our cost, your order, with the exception of the 110 crickets,
any specials that we run, and all Puerto Rico shipments if you follow our

will be reshipped.
Please note that
when the temperatures are cold, a heat pack and double box are required to get the
replacement. Worm orders need to be sent overnight if your temperature is
90 degrees or above to receive guarantee. See the individual order pages for the temperature guidelines.
I just wanted to send you a current letter. I have been through several illnesses
with my bearded dragons and haven't needed to order as much up til now. I was very
pleased to see you offering butterworms as we have started to use them! My last
couple of orders have been fantastic. The superworms were 100% alive. Now that I
am feeding 6 dragons my needs are even greater. I appreciate the prices you offer
as they are slightly less that some of the other recommended online suppliers. Your
shipping prices are more than competitive as well. I just wanted to thank you for
your great product and shipping. I continue to recommend Premium Crickets to new
reptile owners and as a general link on our beardeddragons.org forum for people
looking for on-line suppliers.

Hi Mike,Standing Orders
I really appreciate the quality of your crickets and your standing behind the
product- I had to purchase some crickets locally last weekend (to carry me while
you refilled the order) and when I opened the box the crickets were full of black
bugs, some weird worms, and they were not very healthy- it really made me appreciate
the quality of your product.

We appreciate each and every customer!
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for a truly pleasant transaction. I
tried buying from three other sources and didn't come away a happy customer. One
wouldn't ship, another I received nothing from, not even a reply to my emails or
phone calls. In fact I had to contact my credit card company because I never
received the crickets or a response to my communication. I bought a few times
from the third company, but wasn't entirely satisfied with them either.
I must say after my first transaction with Premium Crickets, I'm very
satisfied. Thanks again for a smooth transaction. I look forward to doing
business with your company in the future.
How do we count crickets?
We get this question every day. Maybe this video will help answer that
I just wanted to say that I am very pleased with the insects
I actually work in a large pet shop, and while the crickets we sell
are good, they are overpriced and not nearly as healthy as the orders I get from
Premium Crickets. I've tried other suppliers as well, and nothing compares!
keep a very large community vivarium, and it's great to have a supplier that
offers the highest quality product at a good price, with fast shipping.
herps are happy, and so am I!
I am so glad I can
count on you every time I need crickets. I have never received a bad order and
the crickets arrive here fast, too. They are healthy and last me a long time.
Now I am going to start ordering superworms from you as well, and I am sure
they will be just as healthy. I am very happy with your company. You have a
customer for life!
I just wanted to drop a line your way and let you know how impressed I am
with my order. I recently had a HORRIBLE experience ordering crickets, and upon
the advice from another reptile breeder tried premium crickets. I am a brand new
reptile owner, and the problems that I had really made me nervous about ordering
I was SO pleased today when I got my order! The crickets are exactly the size
I wanted, they are clean, healthy, and EVERY SINGLE ONE was alive when I
unpacked them! As an added bonus, the order was about $10 less than the previous
two that I got from the other company. Also, the box that they were shipped in
is way more convenient to unpack - the small size fit right inside the aquarium
and I didn't have one on the outside of the tank - it took less than two minutes
to empty the contents!
You have a customer for life, thank you so much! I look forward to doing
business with you again, and will most certainly be recommending your company in
I just wanted to let you know that this week was the first week that I
ordered from your company and am pleased to say that the crickets arrived
healthy with not a single dead cricket. This is a great improvement from the
last company I ordered from. When their crickets arrived I didn't get the
correct number that I ordered, about 1/10 of them were dead, and they seemed
Anyway, I just wanted to thank you and to tell you to keep up the great job
your company is doing.
My first, second and all subsequent cricket and Superworm orders arrived on
time. I was VERY pleased with both the quality and the count of the insects. It
appears that you put an extra 15-25% more crickets than ordered and NO EXTRA
insects I don't want! THANKS and please put me on the AUTOMATIC order system so
I can receive my insects without having to think about it.
