Live Crickets

Dec 1, 2008

FLUKER FARMS, which has been raising feeder insects for reptiles and fishermen since the 1950s, introduces, "Hoppy Meals." They are boxes of live crickets for feeding to reptiles and lizards.

Hoppy Meals

Hoppy Meals come in four different units, each containing different sizes of crickets: 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and one inch, in order to provide the right size meal for the sizes and appetites of various creatures.

The minimum order is a case of 24 Hoppy Meals units. Each individual clear plastic unit contains approximately 30 crickets, and all units contain the same size crickets. The case comes in its own countertop merchandiser, which has an eye catching header. The units themselves resemble a takeout hamburger carton

Orders are shipped overnight Fed Ex, and the crickets live approximately two weeks. Each container is ventilated, has a crawl space, and includes a food and water source. It also has a layer of cardboard that absorbs waste and keeps the container looking fresh.

Regardless of the size of the crickets inside, the wholesale price of a case of 24, including shipping, totals about $32, or $1.30. The suggested retail price is $3.99.
