Established for 27 years, Livefoods Direct is Britains foremost supplier of livefood insects and associated products. The company specialises in producing a wide range of invertebrates including mealworms (in 4 sizes), black crickets (in 6 sizes), brown crickets (in 6 sizes), silent crickets (in 3 sizes) and locusts (in 5 sizes) as well as waxworms and fruit flies. Millions of mealworms and hundreds of thousands of crickets and locusts are produced every single week at the companys temperature and humidity controlled factories in South Yorkshire. And since livefood insects form an essential part of the diet of many reptiles, garden birds and exotic birds, the company has no shortage of customers. Customers choose Livefoods Direct because when buying livefoods, freshness, quality and a speedy reliable service is paramount. Since the company actually produces the insects that it sells it can maintain levels of control over quality, freshness and stocks that suppliers relying on third party producers cannot hope to achieve. It aims to despatch orders received before noon Monday to Thursday on the same day and to despatch orders received after noon on those days by the following day. So the next time you see Bill Oddie on TV urging you to feed mealworms to the birds you know who to contact!

    As a new customer, I found the website could have been more clearly worded, and didn't find it easy to choose which product I wanted. Also, some parts of the website were loading very slowly (24/4/17).

    Really like the idea of bulk buying to save money but having the deliveries spread over a period of time to keep the locusts fresh
