In Reply to: Crickets Stink!!!!!! Need Advice....read on posted by jsm on May 02, 2003 at 15:47:42:
You need to clean out the aquarium *daily*. (I keep my crickets in a 10 gallon tank.) I use iguana food for cricket food. For water I use a shallow dish with a sponge in it.
Most of the stink comes from rotting decaying cricket bodies.
: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?
