Additional Product InformationThis listing is for live crickets (Gryllodes Sigillatus or Banded Cricket). These crickets have a higher protein content than some other breeds. They move quicker to give your pet more of a thrilling chase. Additionally, many people find them easier to care for, quieter, and cleaner than other breeds of crickets.
We ship them using potatoes or water crystals and feed so that they have a food and water source.
Crickets like to be kept between 80 and 85 degrees. If you are only going to have them for a few days, you can use potatoes to provide them water and nutrition. If you are going to keep them more than a few days, you should give them some type of cricket food and a wet sponge.
We do guarantee live delivery of our crickets. If more than 10% die in transit or within 72 hours of arrival, please let us know within 72 hours of delivery. We always put extra crickets into the box to account for up to a 10% loss. If more than 10% die and you meet the conditions of our live delivery guarantee, we will work with you to make things right. We will either issue you a refund for the portion that died or ship you a fresh box equal to the amount that died. If we do have to make a replacement, we will ship it using USPS. If the crickets are not accepted during the first delivery attempt, the live delivery guarantee is voided. If the crickets are delivered to a PO box and are not picked up the day they are available for pick-up, the live delivery guarantee is voided. We DO NOT guarantee live delivery if your overnight low is below 25 degrees Fahrenheit. .

Occasionally, there are problems when shipping live animals. If you experience any problems, please contact us directly to work out the problem. If you open a case with eBay before contacting us, we will work out the issue, but we will also block you from doing business with us again.
Please note that occasionally we may not have the exact size available. We try to get as close as possible to the correct size, but sometimes they may be slightly bigger or smaller. Also, keep in mind that the crickets are continuously growing. They can jump sizes pretty significantly during transport, depending on temperature. The hotter it is, the faster they will grow.
Please note that we do not mix sizes. If you want multiple sizes, you will have to order multiple boxes.
We will not put your order in multiple boxes unless you order multiple boxes.
There may occasionally be other bugs mixed in with your shipment. We do our best to remove any additional bugs, but some do still get through. Usually they are the dermistid beetles and their larvae, which can be helpful in keeping the box clean by feeding on dead crickets and their waste.
