Bulk order crickets...


When picking up my weekly crickets this afternoon at my local mom and pop pet store I decided to ask if they would be willing to order me crickets in bulk. They said they normally don't do that and asked how many i wanted. I said 500 and I was told that I would have to order at least 2000...yes 2000.... :eek: So I guess I will be ordering my crickets from one of the sponsors...

Is 500 enough to start with to try to breed them or would I need more?

Guess its time to research cricket suppliers..lol

500 is fine to start with although you will find that most online vendors are going to want to sell the larger sized crickets in lots of 1000. Order the 3/4" ones, this will allow you some time before they grow up and start to die off.

500-1000 is plenty to get some breeding going.
