:Sorry if this has been discussed before. How hard it is to keep crickets and breed them or whatever? I am getting sick of going to the pet store all the time and giving them however much money. But even in the little "cricket corral" I get some that die. Umm just let me know cuz it is something I am really interested in. Thanks :)
Get into all that yet, I breed them,because I have frogs that eat them, 8 collareds,and many other types of lizards, I started by buying 1000 and then you have to pick out a few female and male crickets put them seperatly in a tank or tub whatever, with a a container of potting soil kept damp,Temp must be warm for them to do this, atleast 80, they will go into that container like a plastic deli type, and females will deposit eggs . Leave container in with them for a week, then you can remove and put where its atleast 80 or more degrees, then they hatch and ya have tiny tiny baby crickets, but then that takes about 3 weeks for them to get to the size to be food. Unless you always have more being layed in different containers all the time, which I think is just alittle much right now for 2 I would just purchase 100- 500 maybe online from a cricket place near you. When I dont breed, because of just being to busy I order a couple thousand from Herpfood.com hes been great to me, hes got different bugs worms and so, different amounts you can buy, works out !!! Also when you get into breeding, or Many crickets they have a smell, you have to keep them very clean or you will wonder where that stink is coming from LOL. :0) Eve
