Crazy Critters offers you the convenience of high-quality live feeder insects at affordable prices, delivered to your door!


❝ food in its natural state
provides the best source of nutrition ❞




Our wood cockroaches (woodies) are now available in 4 different sizes: 

As woodies are highly active, they trigger a positive feed response in pets that are motivated to feed by movement. 


Woodies are a clean, natural and nutritious option as a staple feeder insect in your pet's diet. 


You can feed our insects to your pet:

  • frogs

  • geckos

  • insect-eating birds

  • lizards

  • predatory fish

  • scorpions and spiders

  • turtles; and

  • wildlife

to provide variety in their diet.


Offering your pet various feeder insects promotes better overall health through a more balanced and nutrient-rich diet.



We recommend that you: 

  • unpack your woodies on arrival to reduce the risk of losses

  • store them at room temperature in a storage container without a lid AND

  • apply a 5cm - 10cm strip of Fluon Insect Barrier Paint to the top inside edges of your storage container to prevent escapees! 

  • raise them on a pre-formulated diet like Crazy Critters Gutload - Premium Insect Food, or for a lower-protein option try our Organic Wheat Bran, and provide fresh produce twice a week.



Woodies do not have an adequate calcium:phosphorous ratio for many animals and may require additional calcium before feeding to your pet. 


You can achieve a higher calcium content by:

  • dusting your insects immediately before offering to your pet; or 

  • adding the calcium powder to a gutload supplement fed to your insects. 

Note: woodies are also commonly referred to as speckled feeder roaches and lobster roaches.
