Wholesale feeders

Hi I was currently trying to find out info on providing feeders insects and rodents to zoo,rescues and pet stores. My first question is how many feeders does a pet store or zoo consume a week/month? I understand when talking about wholesale where talking about huge numbers but I was looking for an estimate of how huge

When i had 25 breeders of bearded dragons i would go thru 5,000 crickets a week plus supersworms. when i did the teen survival challenge at the san diego zoo, we had to find a mealworm and i nocked on the reptile house door the guy answered the door gave us a superworm, he told me they purchase around 100,000 super worms at a time and there a huge zoo so it all depends on size of the place you would be supplying.

a young beardie will eat about 50 crickets a day. But as they get older, it'll probably drop to about 20-30 crickets per day. So if you know how many beardies you're dealing with, that could give you a ball park number of crickets.
