About the Crickets

Conservation Crickets

Our crickets are grown under the strictest conditions - they need to be! The Amphibian Research Centre is growing crickets to feed some of the world's most critically endangered species.

Our quarantine facility is protected from pests and diseases without the use of pesticides. We only use the highest-grade food possible and your crickets are treated with the same care as our own - we pack your crickets straight from the same boxes we use to feed our endangered frogs.
The cheapest crickets

On top of that, we offer the cheapest crickets. We are a conservation centre, not a profit-driven commercial business, so the normal profits are shared by you and our conservation projects. And we will beat our competitors' prices - just ask!

Interstate Orders

Insect deliveries can be made to anywhere in Australia.

Ordering, Delivery and Packaging

Orders are sent out each Tuesday. Orders should be placed before Tuesday 9am to ensure postage on Tuesday afternoon. If you do not want your order sent on the first Tuesday after processing, you can select a future start date at checkout.

Insect orders will be sent separately to other merchandise.

Delivery options

(These options are located on the product page.)
Frequency and Additional Deliveries

The "frequency" is ignored unless a value other than 0 (zero) is chosen for "additional deliveries".

When ordering, it is desirable that the "frequency" and the "additional deliveries" options are identical across the different insect types when placing a mixed order. (It's cheaper for you too, as it will minimise the number of deliveries and delivery charge).

Ongoing payment

Choosing "ongoing payment" allows you to create an ongoing order without the need to pay for multiple deliveries in advance. The ARC will continue to send your insects at the frequency you have selected and your credit card will automatically be charged at the time of each delivery. If at any time you would like to cancel your ongoing order, you can select the "cancel ongoing payment" product in the "Manage orders" category.
