SINCE 1981!

The level of available worm will be restricted to 500g maximum purchase, our website platform will not allow us to fix the drop down, which will allow people to buy more. However, customers will only be sent 1 500g bag and refunded the outstanding balance.

This has been a very devastating year for our company, but with hard work and focus we will forge forward and endeavour to get production levels back on track. We are breeding living organisms that take a certain time to grow in this case it’s 15 weeks, things cannot be rushed, once you lose 3 weeks of production there is no way to get it back unfortunately.

I’m sorry for the problems that this may cause you all, but we are trying to make sure that all customers get something to feed their animals.

Banded Crickets Large (Tropical House Crickets) Size 5 14-18mm

Banded Crickets are native to Southern Europe. Our breeding insects are fed on Progrub, bran and potato making them a safe, clean and inexpensive insect. Crickets are rich in protein and relatively easy to store. They are sold in a variety of sizes to suit all needs.


Brown (banded) crickets proved themselves to be far more nutritious than their rival Black Crickets and Silent Crickets in recent laboratory tests. Brown (banded) crickets were proved to have a higher calorific value and to contain higher levels of protein than both their rivals.

Why would anyone want to pay more? Brown (banded) crickets represent a genuine, honest, superb deal for livefood buyers. Probably the best value for money on the UK internet today. Maybe we should call them Super Crickets?

The tests came out as follows:

Tests were performed by Foodtest laboratories on behalf of Livefoods Direct on April 26th 2010.
