Bulk Crickets

Crickets are a staple for some pets, with bearded dragons, lizards and iguanas among them. Those particular pets are insectivores, meaning they'll devour all types of live insects, including the feeder crickets that Top Hat Cricket Farm has grown and supplied for 65 years.

It Just Isn't Cricket (Feeder Crickets, That is)

Feeder Crickets

We like that phrase. Brits have a way of saying things, and it would be great if a few of them would catch on here. “It Just Isn’t Cricket.” Even though you usually hear it expressed in the negative, it’s actually a very positive thing. When something is wrong and elicits a complaint, they will say it “isn’t cricket.” If what’s wrong isn’t cricket, that means that when something is right, something is good, even something is virtuous … it IS “cricket.”

Mealworms Are a Great Source of Nutrients for Your Reptile

Bulk Crickets and Worms

Mealworms, a beetle larva, are extremely high in protein and a great food staple for your pet lizard. Mealworms begin as eggs that hatch into very small worms. These little worms eat non-stop until they get too big for their exoskeletons, which are shed. For a few days the mealworm is "naked" and creamy white – waiting for its new exoskeleton. This process can happen up to twenty times as the mealworm is growing! Once the worm grows to just under an inch it will go into the pupal phase waiting to become a beetle.
