Online vs Store Bought Crickets: A Clear Victor

Quick! You only have a few days left before you're out of crickets. The pet store is half an hour away. You could make the hour+ drive and bring home a couple dozen, or you could order online. What do you do?As I'm sure you've noticed, Josh's Frogs sells crickets. A LOT of crickets. We generally send out more than half a million crickets on a slow week! As such, I feel like I'm in a pretty good position to discuss the benefits of purchasing crickets online vs picking some up at the pet store.Of course, I am a bit partial (buy from us!), but purchasing crickets online is 100% the way to go about 90% of the time.

Bulk Crickets are Cheaper

When you purchase crickets online, they are a LOT less expensive. Crickets can be 12 cents or more each at a big box pet store - that's $120 per thousand!We sell thousand counts of many different sized crickets for $15.99. Even after shipping, you're saving about 400% easily.don't need 1,000 crickets? I can't relate to that, but we do sell 500 counts, 250 counts, and even as few as 60 crickets at a time.

More Sizes to Choose From

How many times have you gone to the pet store, only to have to choose between ""small"" crickets and ""large"" crickets?If you feed a cricket that's too large, it may pose a health risk to your pet. If you feed an undersized cricket, your critter is going to have to eat a ton more to fill up, costing you a lot more money.Josh's Frogs carries pinhead, 1/8"", 1/4"", 1/2"", 3/4"", and adult crickets. We're also more than happy to help you choose the perfect size for your pet. Cricket Size Comparison Cricket Size Comparison

Farm Fresh Bugs
