Crazy Critters offers you the convenience of high-quality live feeder insects delivered to your door!
Our mealworms are available in 3 different sizes:
Crazy Critters live mealworms are perfect for animals stimulated to feed by movement or for those fussy eaters who have little interest in non-moving food.
You can feed our insects to your pet:
- insect-eating birds
- predatory fish
- turtles; and
to provide variety in their diet.
the key to good nutrition in captive diets is variety, variety, variety
We have various quantities ranging from 10g to 1kg bulk so whether you have 1 or 1,000 animals to feed, we have you covered.
We recommend that you:
- unpack your mealworms on arrival to reduce the risk of losses
- store them in a fridge to slow their growth
- remove them from the fridge every 1 to 2 weeks: allow them to eat for 24 hours then replace the bran in their container before returning them to the fridge
- when feeding your pet: remove mealworms from the fridge 24-48 hours beforehand and gutload
We offer live shipping rates in the checkout to ensure our customers are offered accurate shipping charges that reflect order volume.
We send out orders on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday each week to ensure your live insects arrive before the weekend. This practice helps reduce any losses in transit.
Our live insects are carefully packed with dry food, fresh food or a combination of both, to ensure they get sufficient nutrients and moisture in transit and arrive in excellent condition.
All Crazy Critters boxes have adequate ventilation for airflow and are labelled to ensure appropriate handling. We also slightly oversupply our live insects (up to 20%) to account for any small losses, so you can be confident you receive the right numbers in your order, every time.
We understand the most important part of ordering live food is that they arrive... Alive! So Crazy Critters offers a 100% Live Guarantee. If your live insects arrive in poor condition, let us know and we'll make it right.
Mealworms are not considered a staple food because of their high-fat content, so we recommend you offer them as an occasional treat to pets in good health.
If your pet is injured, sick or breeding, adding mealworms to their diet can help with healthy weight gain.
