In Reply to: How are the crickets getting out? posted by Esther on June 25, 2002 at 00:04:23:
well that's a slight problem, you see i haven't quite determined exactly how they're escaping. Just when i go to fix what i think their escape route is, the manage to find another way out. This is very frustrating. I will try the vaseline idea and hopefully that will solve my problems.
Thanks again. :)
: I think that crickets need more air circulation than just small holes in a Rubbermaid vat. Most pet shops keep them in aquariums with screen tops. Are your escapees climbing up the silicon bead in the corners of your terrarium? I had some new-hatched crickets to that, but I stopped them by applying a layer of Vaseline in the corners, about a 2" strip of it along the silicon. Worked great. Or, is the top fitting loose? How big are the crickets in this terrarium? I can't imagine any but the smallest new-hatched crickets coming out of a mesh screen top on a tank.
: Try the Vaseline trick if the silicon is their escape route.
