We pack to the absolute maximum to give you the very best value for money purchase. So, while the travel tub is perfect to get your crickets to you safely, as well as compact enough to keep courier costs low, it is not ideal for longer term holding of your crickets. Just like you wouldn’t buy a goldfish and leave it in the little bag, don’t do it to your crickets.

Superworms are easy to maintain and can be kept in just about any plastic container; although 20-50 litres is ideal for larger volumes – make sure the sides are smooth to prevent them climbing out. When keeping large numbers together, preferably place them in a thick layer of bran and stack the egg boxes to increase the usable surface area as the worms like their own crawling space.

Roaches are easy to maintain and can be kept in just about any plastic container; although 20-50 litres is ideal for larger volumes – make sure the sides are smooth to hinder them climbing out and that a secure and vented lid is fitted. When keeping large numbers together, preferably stack several layers of egg boxes to increase the crawling area.
