Here's one step in the evolutionary process that was worth the wait. The BugBox! package is the most convenient way to get healthy, gut-loaded crickets. For consumers, it's as easy as walking in and just grabbing a box. Meanwhile, employees aren't distracted tracking down the ones that got away. Watch the BugBox! video.
The concept behind BugBox! crickets is a pre-pack system that makes buying or selling feeder crickets incredibly easy. The BugBox! package is its own biosphere, including food and water, for live feeder crickets. When combined with vertical "drop-down" dispensing sleeves, a consumer is able to serve themselves healthy crickets. Retailers, employees, and consumers all benefit from this sale but the biggest winner may be the herptile that gets guaranteed well fed, gut-loaded crickets in the process.
The BugBox! design is the first cricket package designed to include:
Biodegradable, environmentally friendly material
Food and water supplements to ensure well-fed live crickets
A seven day in-store guarantee
An eye-popping retail "Wow" appeal
Punch-out end openings to introduce crickets to the vivarium
Vertical dispensing sleeves for customer self-service and product rotation
Pre-packed crickets provide retailers with a clean, convenient, and cost-effective way to sell crickets. Using the BugBox! retailing method will improve image and profits by:
Saving countless employee trips to the cricket aisle
Recapturing time lost cleaning, feeding, and repackaging loose crickets
Allowing for merchandising and promoting the impulse sale of crickets
Ending all consumer frustrations finding an employee and waiting for service
Stopping all store "get-aways" inherent with loose crickets
Giving a professional image to the retail environment
Managing cricket inventories
Encouraging rotation of live stock for healthier results
Generous overcounts in each box at no extra charge.
The Bug Company has received national industry awards and media coverage for the BugBox! package including product of the year and coverage on the Today show and Newsweek magazine.
