Live Delivery Guarantee

We have a 24 hour notification window from the time you receive your package! If it’s after hours or on the weekend, please email us at support@premiumcrickets.com and we will see it as soon as we reopen for business. Failure to do so voids the live delivery guarantee! We only guarantee insects that are ordered of a quantity 500 or above, have the correct weather protection (if needed) and shipping method per temperatures. If your order meets the standards of our Live Delivery Guarantee and is unfortunately dead on arrival we will charge $4.95 then we will repack and reship your order. The $4.95 processing fee will cover all other incurred costs of the reshipment.

If you order a smaller amount and they arrive dead, we will add insects to your next order to compensate for your loss. We reserve the right to determine if we will make a replacement shipment to you in the event of DOA or add more crickets at no charge to your next order. The good news is we only have to reship .5% of our orders. Please check below prior to placing an order to ensure you are allowing your insects a safe travel.

FedEx Delays, Damages and Refusals

Whatever happens to your order, whether it arrives damaged, delayed or dead, do not refuse the package! FedEx will charge our company $16 to ship the product back to us. This charge will be passed on to you and we reserve the right to deny any reshipments to you. So do not refuse your shipment by any means! As a customer you are not the only person who can reject the order. Apartment Complex offices can refuse the package if they deem it not allowed in the complex. If you live in an apartment please check with the office first! Also, FedEx can also refuse the shipment at their ship centers or FedEx office and print stores. Office and print stores will refuse your shipment, do not ship their! If you ship to a FedEx Ship Center only use express services provided (FedEx 2 day Air, Standard Overnight and Priority Overnight). We have been using FedEx for some time now with relatively good success. If your shipment is delayed for any reason after we shipped the package, your best bet is to contact FedEx directly and provide them your tracking number. If FedEx can determine it was an error on their end and not “an act of god” (your order got stuck because of snow for example) we will make sure we will do everything in our power to rectify your issue! From time to time FedEx can accidently damage a package. Don’t worry we have you covered! As long as you do not refuse the package we will replace what you lost (we reserve the right to determine at the time whether it is to add the missing items to your next order or reship the items).

Weather Restrictions

If your temperatures are very hot or very cold you can reduce the risk of receiving dead product. Think about shipping your insects to a FedEx Ship Center (do not ship to office and print centers as they have the right to refuse your shipment). To find your nearest ship center there is an option for you to select the nearest Ship Center at the time of placing your order. Your order will avoid the hot trip in the FedEx van and FedEx will call you when they arrive. If your order is shipped via FedEx Ground or Home Delivery, FedEx will refuse the shipment at the ship center and will be returned to us. We will not replace or refund these orders.

Normal Weather Shipping

When the temperature is above 50 degrees at night and below 80 degrees during the day, we rarely have any problems with shipping. In the rare event that your insects do arrive all dead, email us at support@premiumcrickets.com (remember to take pictures) and we will immediately work on rectifying your issue. As long as you are in the parameters of the temperature requirements we will happily reship your order and all you will pay is the $4.95 processing charge. If part of your live delivery arrives dead, we will compensate by adding free live products to your next order.

Hot Weather Shipping

If your temperature is above 80 degrees in the day, we will ship your order but there will be no guarantee if shipped via FedEx Ground or Home Delivery. If daytime temperatures are between 80 and 85 degrees your order will be guaranteed if shipped Priority overnight. Once daytime temperatures exceed 85 degrees there is no live arrival guarantee under any circumstances.

Cold Weather Shipping

Insects live within a given temperature range. If the temperature is too cold they will die. During cold weather spells, you can add Weather Protection to your shipment. The cost of the weather packaging is $3.00 per item for the packaging. During the ordering process you'll have the opportunity to select the Weather Protection option. If the transit temperature is below 50 degrees at night choose weather protection to receive the guarantee. If the transit temperatures in your area are between 40 and 30 degrees at night, choose the weather protection and FedEx Priority Overnight shipping service if you want the guarantee. If your night time temperatures drop below 25 degrees there is no guarantee in any circumstance. When Insects get too cold they go dormant. Before calling please ensure they have been acclimated to warmer temperatures for at least 3 hours (try to avoid heat lamps as they tend to dry out the dormant crickets and cook them). A lot of times this is all that is needed to spring them back into life.

Shipping Your Orders

Shipping to a PO Box

Only the Post Office can ship to a PO Box. Since we don't use the Post Office as a shipper, we cannot ship to PO Boxes. It is your responsibility to put in the correct shipping address. We need a physical address.

Incorrect Addresses

If you put in an incorrect address and we ship, FedEx will try to find the correct address and make the correction. FedEx will charge us $16.00 for the service. That $16.00 will be charged back to you - Please make sure you put in your correct address! If the delivery is delayed due to you putting in the wrong address, the guarantee is void.

Shipping to an Apartment

FedEx will deliver your package to an Apartment. However, they will not leave the package at the front door of an Apartment if you are not there. If you make an order and have shipped to an Apartment, it is your responsibility to be home when FedEx makes their delivery. If you cannot be home, have the shipment sent to your place of employment or a friend's house. We will not guarantee shipments where FedEx makes an attempt to deliver to an Apartment and no one is home. Consider shipping your Insects to a FedEx Ship Center, if you select FedEx Express Services Only (2 Day Air, Standard Overnight and Priority Overnight)

Cricket Care Sheet

Cricket Care Sheet

Now that you bought your crickets from Premium Crickets, how do you keep them alive?  You should plan to keep your crickets for around 1 month to get the maximum benefit from your purchase.  Here are a few tips, questions, and answers that will make feeding your reptile with Premium Crickets a breeze.

Where should I keep my crickets?

Crickets have some characteristics of people – their like their own space.  That means you can’t keep them in the shipping box that we provide as their permanent house.

I recommend to people to go to Wal-Mart, Target, or Home Depot and purchase a plastic storage tote (see pictured):

 
You can poke holes in the top for ventilation.  The top really is not necessary until the crickets start growing wings – which is just after they reach ¾”.  If you get a container that is at least 2 feet high then no top is necessary.  Deeper the better

Choose a clear plastic container – clearer the better.  We found the clear containers are slipperier and the crickets cannot climb out.

Open your box of crickets INSIDE the plastic tote.  If you do not then you will surly have a house full of crickets.  You have no idea how many first time buyers of bulk crickets make that mistake.

Pull out the egg crates that are inside the cricket-shipping box and place the crickets and the egg crates together in the plastic tote.

Throw a hand full of cricket feed on the bottom of the plastic tote and a small plate full of cricket water – and you are in business.

How do I remove the crickets from the storage container to feed to my reptile?

A good trick that I found is to place a toilet paper roll in the container.  Crickets like extra space and a good hiding place so they will happily go inside the roll.  Just pick the roll up and transport your crickets to your reptile cage.  This is a good trick for those of you who don’t like to touch crickets.  The pros don’t really care – they just scoop up a hand full and toss them in the reptile cage.

How long do crickets live?

It takes 42 days to produce a full grown cricket.  Once they are full grown, they generally have two to three weeks before they pass on.  

When do crickets begin to chirp?

Some people get annoyed with the sound of chirping crickets.  The chirping begins when they grow beyond ¾” in size and start developing wings.  So if you do not want to hear the chirping, order smaller crickets.

Why do my crickets smell bad?

The crickets do not smell bad - it is the bacteria that cause the odor.  What causes bacteria to flourish?  Rotting food and dead crickets.

What rots? – All the food that you throw in the cricket cage – like potatoes, carrots, etc.

What should I feed my crickets?

Try our cricket food.  It does not rot and has all the vitamins and most minerals needed to produce a fully ‘gut loaded’ cricket.  We have our cricket food specially blended and grounded to achieve an ideal growth rate and gut load for our crickets.

 

Other food sources work, but not as well.  If you do not want our food, go with oatmeal, corn meal, and/or dog food.  You can use a potato, however it's full of starch and not a good food supplement.

You also need to provide a water source for your crickets.  The cheap way is a wet sponge or paper towel.  However, keeping the sponge clean can be a challenge over time.  Paper towels dry out quickly.

What is the ‘Cricket Water’ that you sell?

 
We sell our cricket water in a dehydrated form.  When you get your bag of cricket water, add the contents to 1 gallon of water.  Stir for about 15 minutes and you will see it turn into a ‘jello’ form.  It is the same stuff you buy at the Pet Store – just no fancy label. Scoop a small amount on a small plate (or jar cap) and change out every 3 days.  It makes watering your crickets a snap.

Do I need to refrigerate the cricket water?

No, you do not.  I carry around the same cricket water to reptile shows for people to see for over two years.  The cricket water should be stored in a cool location.  If it goes dry, simply add some more water to rehydrate.

Why do I need to ‘dust’ my crickets with Calcium? (Rather than feeding them with Calcium)

 

Many people make the mistake of trying to ‘gut load’ their cricket with calcium-supplemented products (like cricket water, etc.).  Here is the problem – a cricket has an exoskeleton.  That means their skeleton is on the outside of their body.  Too much calcium makes their skeleton brittle and they cannot molt it off as they grow to their next stage of development.  Premature death is the result.

We sell a high-grade calcium product that you can use to coat your crickets prior to feeding to your reptile.  We recommend that you dust your crickets with calcium every other feeding.

What else do I need to consider?

  • Crickets should be kept at 70 degrees or better (find somewhere inside your house)
  • Crickets and fly strips do not do well together – the fly strip wins.
  • Crickets are very sensitive to chemicals.  They are hearty, but weak to chemicals like paint, new carpet out-gassing, and of course – bug spray.
  • Clean your cricket cage out every week.
  • Have fun!

What is Weather Protection

A 40 hour heat pack is used as weather protection when temperatures are between 30 degrees and 50 degrees. Some insects like the heat and cannot handle the cold very well. A 40 hour heat pack is all the warmth they need during shipping.

There is a $3.00 charge for this service. Please see our shipping policy to ensure your shipment has the live arrival guarantee.

I just orded 250 crickets for my lizard. I ordered them on Monday and got them today, Thursday. I opened the box and they were all dead. Not a single one alive. The temperature at night time was around 40 degrees, and I ordered the night time temperature package (Which is just a stinkin hand warmer thrown in the box) and they were still dead. I called them today, and could not get my money back or a re-shipment of crickets. Even though it says that you can. I am very dissatisfied. This is the first time I ordered online and I am probably not going to do it again. This site has amazing reviews though.. But I have no idea why. Thats the only reason I ordered. - Michael Artley

I think the owners of this website write a bunch of fake reviews to get business because their product and customer service is about as poor as it gets.

My first couple of orders with premium crickets went fairly smooth, but my last 2 shipments from them have been horrible. I have 2 bearded dragons and order 2000 crickets at a time. My last 2 shipments half of the crickets were dead on arrival. I can understand the issues with the cricket virus and heatwave, but premium crickets did not work with me to resolve me order. I would never order from them again.

I was very suprised when I got my orders and none of them were dead! I ordered 2 different size crickets and they are all healthy. This was my first time ever buying crickets online and they are healthier than the ones i get from the stores around here! I will definatly be doing business with you guys again! Thanks Mike!

These crickets were incredibly healthy. I ordered pinheads and 1/8ths. Both containers were full of very healthy and live crickets. I couldn't even find a single dead one when I transfered them to my containers. Weeks later and I still have plenty of live crickets. Cheaper and better then what's available in my local pet stores, without a doubt 5 stars from me.

I agree with another customer's comments. My first 3 orders were great. I just rec'd my 4th order of 110 and they were all dead except a few that were wiggling around. I will order the amount the guarantee next time. A little disappointed that I spent all that money on shipping to receive a can full of dead crickets.

I just wanted to tell you guys that I have ordered crickets and superworms from you guys three times now and I am so happy with your service. There is minimal death during shipping and the crickets are so healthy that I rarely have any die off. You guys are the best. I would highly recommend your service! Feel free to use my quotes...... I love your service! Thanks Carla Sewell

Shipment was delayed, not Mike's fault, but he is going to throw in a few extra crickets on my next order...what a guy! I will definitely be ordering again and again and...well..you get the idea :-) I've been a customer for a few months now and I can honestly say that this is the BEST place on the web to buy live food!

I rear praying mantises from around the world. I have ordered multiple shipments of various sized crickets (pin-heads and larger). As I live in Las Vegas, the temperatures reach oven conditions-- especially now in June. I have had boxed crickets sitting out on my porch in 105+ degree heat for many hours... and they are still okay when I release them into their terrariums (but not so much when I put them in with some hungry mantises). Premium Crickets provides a great service and offers an excellent product. As with any product, there's going to be some occasional deficiencies. But overall, they get two thumbs up for quality and service. Collecting prey items on my own in the backyard for my hordes of mantises gets two thumbs down. You will not find a better competitor for live feeders. I'll buy from these guys any day. I'm putting in another order right now. *grin* Kris Anderson

This is my first order and I have to admit it was a bit cofusing for I am use to small, med , or large and so I hope I am ordering the correct size for the three tree frogs I have for this is a classroom curriculam and I thought I had done all my homework but I guess not. Until now I have been going through Pet Smart witch as you can guess is a bit costly but at least I had a live person to tell me what size to buy, and how often to feed them.I would suggest that you add a bit more info on your sizes for what type of frogs. We will see the product once I get it for all this is out of my own pocket w/ no help from the private year around school I work for. Thanks Ms.Sandy

WOW!! What service ! Super quick shipment and All the 3/8 were alive. The 1/8 had just a few casualties but hardly noticeable in the generous shipment. They are perky, clean and healthy looking. You've got a new customer in me, Lola, my tiger legged tree frog and Ecco, my leopard gecko. thanks again.

I really like the packaging for the crickets it is a lot easier then a box that will not fit in the Kricket Keeper. The price is just right i bought two of the 110 since i wanted two different sizes and it was only $15 with s&h. I bought 250 from a different site and it cost a little more than $25 with s&h. I could have bought 1000 from this site. I didnt get many dead ones either. I will buy from this site again.

My first order was great, but my second order of 110 crickets were dead!!! I was able to salvage 15. I paid extra for the heat pack but I guess they forgot to open the air holes. I understand no live guarantee. I will be order a product with a guarantee in future.....

I've ordered crickets from other online stores and have bought crickets directly from pet shops and there are always crickets that don't survive transport and die within weeks despite my best effort of care. This is the first company where all the crickets arrive alive and live a long life. The prices are extradordinary and I love that I have the option of ordering in smaller quantities of 110. This is the best compnay I have ever ordered from and will be the only company I ever order from again. The food is is top quality at a superb price. Keep up the great work. A Happy customer.

Automatic 5 stars, if only if they had even more stars! The crickets came promptly, and Mike shipped them out the same day I ordered them. The crickets arrived in excellent condition and were very frisky, showing how much life they have. This is my first time ever purchasing crickets off the internet for my Leopard Gecko, Kira, and I must say, this site have much cheaper crickets then anywhere else, and their gutloaded! This is the only site I've found that sold less than 200 crickets, seeing that everywhere else sells 500 - 1000 and even more. Great site, customer for life!

First time ordering crickets online. I am very pleased! The crickets were delivered very quickly and most (if not all) are alive and very active! I lost a group when I tried to transfer them but after chasing them around my bathroom floor for 15 minutes I think I got them all. Haha. Good deal, healthy crickets, fast delivery! It was well worth it, I will be back for sure!
