Default suggestions wanted for a new cricket supplier

Well my main source for buying crickets went out of business so I am now looking for a new supplier. I spent over an hour checking various websites the other day, comparing prices and so forth. I do not need that many compared to those who have really large collections and I would like to find a dealer that is on the east coast if possible and will combine sizes. Suggestions?

I order mine from The Cricket Factory. I spend $11 for 1,000 any size, I am not sure what you have been paying.

Thanks Justin. I'll check them out. I had been getting mine from Zooquatic Pet Center. They sold 500 for 11.00 and I could combine sizes. I hate the thought of having to order them again but it is too expensive to pay standard pet store prices.

Whatever you do, do not go to wormman worm farm! I had a problem a few yrs ago where they would ship your order a month after the order was placed. That happened twice ~ 3 yrs ago, so I stopped ordering through them. Figuring that they may have changed for the better, I placed an order with them last october. Two weeks went by, at this point I`m frustrated, called them everyday, several times a day for a week, never got to talk to a person, always got the answering machine. I left a meesage on their machine to cancel the order, and also e-mailed them cancelling my order and to refund my credit card that they had already charged. Well mid-December I arrived home from work to find a package of frozen pin-heads. I was still unable to get into cantact with anyone from their facility, and had to dispute the charges through my credit card company.

I was going through krazy karls, but the recession has hit them pretty hard. Since then I have just been breeding my own crickets and wax worms.
