Perfect for your pets that require medium sized feeders, these are true ½" Banded Crickets - many pet stores sell these as "medium crickets". 

 

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

½" Banded Crickets can be fed as a treat or staple, depending on the animals you're feeding. Make sure to dust ½" 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. ½" 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 ½" 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.

Packaging was perfect, even had some potatoes to keep them happy along the way. Considering I ordered right around Thanksgiving I'm amazed that it still got here super quick and only about 4 casualties amongst 250 crickets! Thanks!! (Posted on 11/23/2018)

My beardie eats these right up. Review by Lynn
Quality
I originally had a small bag of crickets from PetSmart when I adopted my bearded dragon. I quickly placed an order for banded crickets from Josh's Frogs and he is MUCH more enthusiastic about eating these. Maybe they taste better and/or are healthier. 5 stars and we will continue ordering in bulk! (Posted on 8/22/2018)
