Had it with my old one. Anyone in the Southeast have recommendations for a good bulk cricket vendor who ships? I go through about 4 boxes a month.
I'm actually in the Northeast, opposite of what your looking for, so sorry if this doesn't help at all...
But I order my crickets online from Ghann's cricket company. They are speedily delivered, NEVER dead, and always easy to contact if I have any questions.
They even called me once when my email confirmation didn't go through to verbally tell me the crickets were on their way!
As a bonus reason to buy there, they had an episode of "Dirty Jobs" filmed there, and you can "see" how your crickets are raised and harvested.
Sorry about your cricket troubles!
I dont know what species of cricks they sell at Flukers, but I do know that Ghanns sells the brown banded cricks, and after haveing all the others, they are the only cricks I will buy.
They are non aggressive, dont stink, not as noisy, and jump like crazy!!
I know when I buy from Ghanns, I will always get the brown banded, if Flukers has the same species, I would switch, and save on shipping.
If not, then I would rather pay the extra $$ and buy from Ghanns.
