No cricketsicles! Huzzah!!!
By Florence Ivy
Middle of winter, 100% live arrival. That's what I'm TALKING about. I've got some hungry, hungry reptiles, and you know how much use I get out of a box of 250 dead, frozen crickets? ZERO. ZERO USE! I got that three times in a row with Fluker's. What a nightmare. Out of sheer frustration, I thought, you know what? I'm seldom saddened by an Amazon experience and lo and behold, this guy came through. LIVING crickets arrived at my door, and they STAYED alive until they were consumed by hungry reptiles. Which, have you considered what that's like for these little bugs? Oof. Best not think such things. Just be happy they arrive alive, until their big gladiator type finale.

Chaos a bit upon arrival
Ordered 500 crickets, many were dead on arrival, but with 500 ordered that is fine. Opened the box, thankfully outside and the crickets all exploded out of the box...would have been nice if they were in say a paper bag inside the box so transferring from one container to my cricket container was easier..so of course we lost more crickets at the transfer. Lastly, there were other bugs in there other than crickets....at least a dozen of these black tube like bugs...to attempt to remove them would have also allowed other crickets to escape. Overall, just going to buy crickets from now on at the pet store since this mail - order way was just not so easy.

So, I gave this three stars for the fact that you DO get quite a bit of crickets for a decent price. HOWEVER, there is a reason it's so cheap it turns out. The way they are shipped was a freaking nightmare. I didn't know what to expect, I've never bought crickets online before, but thought I would give it a go for the convenience factor. There is no convenience factor with this. They shove 500 crickets in a small box with holes and a large piece of egg crate. You open the box and suddenly there are 500 crickets jumping all over the freaking place. THANK GOD I had the forethought to open the box in the bathtub or I would have had all these dudes living in my house. It took me three days to get all the guys from the box into my cricket keeper because I had to try to scoop them from the box by hand.
