Looking for tiny crickets that won't show up dead? Then Josh's Frogs Pinhead Crickets are perfect for you!

Josh's Frogs pinhead crickets are young banded crickets (Gryllodes sigillatus), which we've found ship much better than other species of cricket, allowing us to safely ship you 1-3 day old crickets!

Perfect for your pets that require extremely small feeders, these are true pinhead crickets—they're tiny (about 1/16 inch), unlike most other feeder suppliers who offer 8-10 day old crickets.

Best of all, we guarantee live arrival and provide a generous overcount.

How to Feed: Pinhead crickets can be fed as a treat or staple, depending on the animals you're feeding. Make sure to dust pinhead crickets with a proper vitamin and mineral supplement before being fed to your pet. Watch our video on How to Dust Crickets if you're not sure how.

Pinhead Crickets are great feeder insects for:

  • poison dart frogs
  • bumble bee toads
  • mantellas
  • praying mantids
  • slings

Any animal that is microphagus (eats small foods) will love pinhead crickets!

How to Store: When Josh's Frogs ships pinhead crickets, they are already stored in a cardboard tube with eggcrate and a bit of food. If you'll be feeding out the pinheads within a few days of arrival, feel free to keep them housed in their shipping container. The food provided will make an ideal food and water source.

If you'll be using the crickets over a longer period of time, please set them up in more permanent cricket housing using one of our cricket care kits and feed a quality cricket food. Crickets should be gutloaded with a nutritious food for 2-3 days before feeding them to your pet. Watch our video on Gutloading Crickets to find out how.

If you'd like to store pinhead crickets for more than a couple days, please view our video on Feeder Cricket Care.
