Hi,
I'm wondering - how much is it for a tub of crickets? I'm trying to work out the average price in the uk.
Please add your shop's price here. Oh and can you also say what size & roughly how many is in a tub if that's possible.
Thanks!!!

Local shop is £3.50 a tub, never sure how many you get to use cos they are crap.

Another shop I know, about 30 miles away is £2.20 tub. Never counted them

I sell on to mates at £2.00 a tub, just fill it up so dont count. I do bags of 1000 std browns at £15, but again, only to mate locally and only cos I get like 4-6 thousand a week !

my shop is around £2.15 a tub of around 15-30 crickets medium size.

online you can buy them in bulk bag which save you alot of money at around £5.18 but if you get one of them your reptile needs to eat alot and you need sufficient storage i.e. another viv for them...

The crix i get from my local pet shop are £2.10 a tub and the amount varies on the size. The ones i get are about 1 - 2 cm in length as i only have a baby beardy. and i get around 100 crix in the one tub.

Sorry: good point, never occurred to me that its not a standard measurement. :oops:
Our medium size insects are 2-3cm long and quite fat (about 75 mm across in the case of crix)
