Crickets - full of protein, vitamins, and minerals, and fun to eat!
From bearded dragons to anoles, tarantulas to red-eared sliders, just about every reptile, amphibian, and arachnid enjoys live crickets. Crickets are a good staple for their diets, and they're full of natural appeal. Shake a few crickets into their habitat, and watch your animal hunt, chase, and slurp them up.
Farm-Raised Quality and Freshness
Timberline's state of the art growing facilities produce healthy, feisty crickets. By the time they arrive at your door, they've led a pretty good life - well-fed, well cared-for, growing up with millions of friends. True, shipping can be stressful for crickets, but we make a strenuous effort to make sure your order arrives alive, come rain or shine (or snow, or freezing temps). You can order Timberline crickets with confidence, knowing that you'll get quality bugs - we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee!
The Ins and Outs of Keeping Crickets
So, once you have a box full of crickets at your doorstep, what do you do with them? In every order of live pet food we send, Timberline includes detailed care instructions to help you make the most of your feeders. With a little care, you can make your feeders last longer and be a healthier meal for your animals. The basics, however, are these: your crickets need a clean, dry place to live, away from chemicals and extreme heat/cold; they need moisture, and they need food.
Whether you're keeping 500 crickets or several thousand crickets, Timberline provides a full line of cricket care products that will enhance the life span and wholesomeness of our crickets. Our Easy Water is the cleanest and most convenient method of cricket watering, and our Cricket Power Food is great for everyday cricket meals and for gut loading the crickets prior to feeding them to your critters.
Many people use aquariums or large plastic tubs to house their crickets. There's nothing wrong with that, but if you want to make maintenance and clean-up as easy as possible, we recommend the Timberline Cricket Display Case. Crickets kept in our display cases stay well-ventilated, odor-free, and easily accessible!
Crickets shipped during cold weather might arrive looking dead; just release them into the container and allow them 3-4 hours to warm up. Cold temperatures can cause them to become dormant, but a few hours at room temperature usually perks them right up.
