Looking for feeder crickets that won't show up dead? Then Josh's Frogs ¼" Banded Crickets are perfect for you!

 

Josh's Frogs ¼" Banded 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 healthy crickets!

 

Perfect for your pets that require small feeders, these are true ¼" Banded Crickets - they're what most pet stores sell as "small crickets". Best of all, we guarantee live arrival and provide a generous overcount.

 

Josh's Frogs offers ¼" Banded Crickets in 250 count, 500 count and 1,000 count quantities.

How to Feed

¼" Banded Crickets can be fed as a treat or staple, depending on the animals you're feeding. Make sure to dust ¼" Banded 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. ¼" Banded Crickets are great feeder insects for: young bearded dragons, young leopard geckos, many chameleons, anoles, fire belly toads, and many other reptiles and amphibians.

 

How to Store

When Josh's Frogs ships ¼" Banded Crickets they are boxed with eggcrate. 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.  Please view our video on How to Care for Feeder Crickets.
