Default Live food online... Best place to order

Hi all, just wondering where you order your live food from as I'm paying £2.00 a tub of locust at my local and there's barely 20 in there, if they dont have any in stock I'm forced to got to Pets at home where I get a tub of 14 for £2.49!!

i got 2 bags of 50 large locusts (although there was more like 56 large and 35 mixed smaller ones per bag) and 20 frozen pinkes delivered for £22 so pretty good value if you ask me.. RS Reptiles

I use swell reptiles, I've never been let down by any of my deliveries yet, it's always fantastic quality and good value for money. I buy a lot of my reptile related bits from them.

If you want something from South Florida in the USA, try southflordiarodents.com . The problem is, it cost dollars, not pounds.

Lol, unfortunately I'm not moving to the sunny U.S of A
Maybe I'll start a colony then? Are locusts hard to breed?

They aren't hard to breed if you know what you're doing and do it right... compared to the likes of roaches they are more complicated to breed and require more time and attention to detail. Keep them hot, dry and supplied with the right food...

...then learn about the laying side of things, substrate + depth and watering frequency etc.

It isn't too difficult, but unless you needs lots of locust or you plan on selling them, I wouldn't bother... they take a lot more time and patience compared to anything else I breed or have read about that I might breed.
