LIVE - Pinhead Sized Feeder Crickets

$ 22.50


Our LIVE Pinhead sized feeder crickets are:

• approximately 1-2 days old

• about the size of an ANT - perfect for a vast array of very small animals (dart frogs, baby chameleons, baby bearded dragons, etc)

• extremely soft bodied - very easy for your animals to digest

• wingless - no wings makes them very easy for reptiles and amphibians to digest, and also means they are QUIET! (it's the rubbing together of a cricket's wings that makes the chirp)

This size cricket does NOT have any potato in the shipping container because small crickets can be easily injured or killed by the pieces of potato bouncing around in transit. Remember to add a food & water source upon receipt!

We know you want your crickets, red worms, or mealworms NOW, and we would prefer to get them to you NOW too.  But until teleportation gets invented outside of science fiction, we're going to have to commit to these shipping sanctions:

Cricket Shipping Generals

  • All crickets are shipped with USPS Priority Mail, which will arrive in about 2-3 days. 
  • Orders are only shipped Monday - Friday, to avoid weekend transit delays.
  • Nature didn't prepare crickets for the postal service.  So upon receiving your crickets, it is important to promptly introduce them into their new home, and offer them some apple or potato slices.  This will help hydrate and nourish them.
  • We can ship with FedEx, but it may incur additional fees.  Please contact us for these accommodations at contact@cheapfeedercrickets.com.   

Red Worm Shipping Generals

  • All red worms (red wigglers and euro nightcrawlers), are shipped with USPS Priority Mail, which will arrive in about 2-3 business days.
  • Red Worms orders are only shipped on Mondays and Wednesdays, to ensure live delivery.
  • Red worms are packaged in peat moss.  This will dehydrate the red worms, which will make them appear scrawny and lethargic after the transit.  So promptly give them some water after you receive them.
  • Same with the crickets, we can ship with FedEx or UPS, but it may incur additional fees.  Please contact us for these accomodations at contact@cheapfeedercrickets.com.

Mealworm Shipping Generals

  • All mealworms are shipped with USPS Priority Mail, which will arrive in about 2-3 business days.
  • Mealworm orders are only shipped on Mondays through Fridays to ensure live delivery.
  • Mealworms are packaged in bran.  The bran acts as a food source for the mealworms.  However, upon arrival, the mealworms will be dehydrated.  So it is important to offer them some potato or apple slices when they arrive.
  • Same with the crickets and red worms, we can ship the mealworms with FedEx or UPS, but it may incur additional fees.  Please contact us for these accomodations at contact@cheapfeedercrickets.com.

 

Adverse Weather

  • Crickets, mealworms, and red worms are pretty hearty.  But even they have limitations. So, to ensure that they get to you alive, we perform our due dilligence and keep a close eye on the weather.  If our location, your location, or the transit route is experiencing temperatures below 25 degrees F or above 95 degrees F, we will postpone your cricket, red worms, or mealworms shipment until further notice.  
  • If you are in desperate need for the crickets, and need them shipped regardless, we will honor your request, but the LIVE Delivery Guarantee is no longer in affect.
