Buzzing With Questions?

  • Can I order online?

    At the moment, we are supplying our MiniBeasts to your local pet stores and businesses (and there are over 250 of them!). We know how much your pets love our beasts, so we suggest talking to your local pet store about how you can get hold of our product.

  • How long do my MiniBeasts Last?

    We have gone above and beyond with our research and breeding to bring you the longest lasting live food on the market - lasting 4 times as long as competing beasts. We don’t stop there - our MiniBeasts quantities are a record 25% larger and hold more nutritional value than any others!

    Put our MiniBeasts to the test today and see if your scaly pal agrees!

  • How do you deliver?

    We have a fleet of MiniBeasts on wheels - giving us a speedy and direct delivery method to our local stockists! Depending on your location, we may call for some outside helpers to deliver your stock of MiniBeasts. We will always keep you informed on your orders to ensure your order is on its way - safe and sound!

  • How important is nutritional quality for insects?

    It's vital, yet it's hard to find. Insect breeders realise all insects are not equal! Insects can be grown cheaper using lower-grade feeds, but they have inferior nutritional profiles.

    Do you know how nutritious your animal's insects are? Do you value your pet's long-term health? This is why we work hard to take care of your pets dietary requirements with precision breeding and raising processes. Our hard work is reflected in our mealworms - containing twice the protein of that advertised by another supplier (Petwave accessed September 2021).

    We are industry leaders and are happy to provide nutritional information. This will let you compare our insects and improve the industry (including us)!

  • What is your delivery fee?

    We personally deliver over 90% of our client orders in a Minibeasts delivery vehicle, arriving within 8 hours of leaving our MiniBeasts farm. Where we can’t use our vans we will use the most reliable courier we can find to ensure our stock gets to you efficiently and safely.

    Our delivery vans make scheduled deliveries, and ensure our products come to you in top condition. For those who would love to stock our MiniBeasts menu, but are a bit too far for us to deliver personally - please contact us to discuss logistics and pricing.

    We charge the same delivery fee for live and frozen orders.

  • Is there a minimum order?

    We don’t require a minimum order however we do suggest that you do your best to fill a box in order to make your delivery fee as cost effective as we can.

  • What’s the best way to store our crickets?

    We suggest storing crickets in a warm, draught free environment with good airflow. In store it is best to stack them in a pyramid style or, better still, arrange them as a single layer. For best results we recommend removing old carrot every two days and replacing with fresh carrot.
