New Low Maintenance Feeder Insect Breeding Methods are Now Available !!


After more than 13 years of commercial production and experimentation, we have pioneered revolutionary new techniques that have slashed maintenance, eliminated offensive odor and doubled production compared to traditional techniques. We have lots of free articles, training courses, books and videos to show you how to breed feeder insects with new low maintenance systems. There is no excuse anymore, its easy!! Why persist with methods we know don’t work over the long term?

If you have questions??… we have answers !! For more information on how to breed crickets, mealworms, cockroaches and soldier flies visit our new and improved website BreedingInsects.com.

Why Conventional Methods Have Failed

Have you ever wondered why 98% of people give up breeding crickets after just 3-6 months using traditional techniques.  The answer is simple….breeding crickets is easy, the hard bit is continuing with a laborious maintenance schedule (daily spraying, moving crickets between containers, cleaning, feeding etc.). To complete the failure cycle, most colonies then collapse from disease and pests due to lack of maintenance… This is why most people breed cockroaches and mealworms which have lower maintenance…yet even cockroaches can be messy, smelly and difficult to contain.

Unlike Conventional methods our systems are low maintenance. How would you like automated cricket and cockroach breeding systems that;

  • Needs no active management;
  • Collects waste for you;
  • Food/ water dispensers  which attends to your insects for 14 days or more;
  • Requires only 5 minutes maintenance every 10-14 days (less time than standing in line at the pet store)
  • Systems so productive that the average family will be able to feed 4-12 bearded dragons (depending of feeding rate) just from their scrap vegetables;
  • That’s over $1400/year cash you are currently throwing away!!.


Crickets- How do we do this?…Well in a nut shell, we have created two separate zones within a single container (conventional techniques require up to 6 separate containers);  one high humidity area ideal for breeding;   and a lower humidity area which is required for housing and food/water. We have also developed a unique detritus collection system which collects the waste and prevents contamination of breeding substrate and food areas.

This makes cleaning a breeze, eliminates odours and disease, increases egg viability and significantly increases cricket production. We have water and food dispersers which do the feeds for you, even when your on holidays! Unlike conventional techniques which need to be actively managed (daily spraying, and moving pinheads to new containers) our systems run themselves ?. Check out our How to Breed Crickets page for further details.

And our cockroach breeding systems are equally unique. See below sections for further details or visit our Breeding Cockroaches page.

You can see why we are pretty proud of what we have achieved. You really can produce more insects with much less effort. Its time to work smarter, not harder! Introducing the most  advanced, low maintenance and productive cricket and cockroach breeding systems in the world.

Imagine breeding all the crickets and cockroaches your animals desire, guilt free!!


We have bred crickets and cockroaches commercially for 14 years to wildlife parks, zoos, pet stores, wildlife rescue clubs, large scale reptile keepers and the general public…. and we are happy to pass on our commercial tips to you. See our Commercial Cricket Breeding  and Breeding Cockroaches pages for more details. This is the only guide that has sufficient detail and experience to be used for private and commercial cricket/cockroach production.

Commercial cricket breeding

With a little extra effort, you can add extra containers and sell excess stock to the public. Many wildlife and reptile enthusiasts are always looking for a cheap and fresh supply of food for their animals. This is a great way to turn an expense into an income. Why not use unused space in your house or shed to produce a regular income?.


The breakthrough wildlife enthusiasts have been waiting for. The crickets just keep coming!! .

“This book is amazing, there is so much information. Finally, a cricket breeding guide that offers something different to “placing toilet rolls and a bowl of vegies into a fish tank”.

“I wish I had discovered this book years ago. I cant believe how little time in now takes me to clean my woodies colony now”.
