You want crickets? My daughter has a bearded dragon that, for a time, we bought boxes of live crickets via mail order. Something like a thousand at a time. They came in medium-sized boxes with a dense air screen, and I'd collect them from the postal guy and set them somewhere I couldn't hear the rustling and cheeping.

One shipment, Mrs. B. felt sorry for them and went to put them in a cricketarium we'd used for smaller batches.

We had crickets cheeping in every corner of the house for two freakin' weeks. Guinea fowl were not an option. Nuking from orbit was seriously considered.
