I've just placed an order with: https://www.cricketking.com.au/

So I'll try to remember to let you know how that goes. They apparently don't use water hydration gels with their insects either at ANY growth stage, as I received in an email after questioning them about it.

Okay, so the insects arrived one day after ordering (this is within the Sydney metro area, so other areas may differ in time) and the insects were within a zip-locked, canvas bag. Inside was an egg-crate with shredded carrot and what I assume to be dry pellets of some kind, along with hundreds upon hundreds of crickets! I thusly highly recommend Cricket King ^_^

Okay thank you! I did manage to find a website on my own it is cheap and has Woodies. It's called Biosupplies I bought off them and they came in egg crates in a sack and are doing very well!

Do you know if they use that gelled water at any stage in the insect's growth?

My opinion of LiveFoods is that they aren't too bad, though they are pretty damn expensive with all their handling fees. Plus they only post on Tuesdays. I think I'll start only using Cricket King and BioSupplies from now on...

Thanks for the links!
The advantage of online casinos is a great variety of gambling. They offer free slots and many other resources for players who deserve quality. It's easy to play free slots with https://bestledjumprope.com. I play just for the fun of it.

I go to petbarm and get packet of about 30 small crickets for about $5, a tub of about 150 meal worms for $22 and small tub of about 60 woodies at $7 :) so with left over woodies you can put them in a small mouse cage and rebreed them, or can let them grow and they than turn into woodies eventually :) because the meal worm cycle goes ----> meal worms into woodies into crickets
