In Reply to: Crickets Stink!!!!!! Need Advice....read on posted by jsm on May 02, 2003 at 15:50:05:

Hi- I provided a link below to show you how I keep my crickets when I don't have silkworms to feed. You should consider changing your feeding habits for your crickets, because what you feed them is what your animals eat. To start off with fish food is not recommended to feed crickets. You should get a cricket gutload food and stick with it, add a mix of FRESH veggies and fruits for a water source and added nutrition. Crickets need to be kept dry. I use pine bedding on the bottom of the box, and a lid with a large screen cutout on it. It is all on the website, click the link below. Hope this helps!

:I know almost all these forums use crickets for feedings so I am posting on a few different forums (so I apologize for the repeated post for those of you who skip frm toads to geckos to newts etc) What can I do to keep my crickets from smelling so bad. I have them in tupper-ware with holes. I feed them veggies, fish flakes, oatmeal, fruit, whatever. And even if I clean there 'house' every day, they always STINK sooo bad. They are dirtier than any animal I have every had!!! Ewwww help!!!! Do you guys have any secrets you do?
