Cricket Care

Normal Care

  1. Maintain temperatures of 80 to 85 degrees. Huddled crickets are too cold. Dead, black or wet looking crickets are too hot.
  2. Store crickets in an aquarium, cricket hotel or condo, or other holding box with egg flats for crawl space and darkness.
  3. Holding boxes should be cleaned only with water in-between cricket orders.
  4. Always have fresh water. This can be done with a watering set-up. For 1 to 2 week old crickets, use a moist sponge.
  5. You can purchase our feed or feed can be unmedicated chicken feed or oatmeal.
  6. Keep insecticides, pest strips and cleaning products away from your crickets. When crickets are dead on their backs, they have been poisoned by some external source.

Special Winter Care & Handling

DO NOT OPEN CRICKET BOX. Warm crickets in the box overnight near a heat source (heat vent, etc.). This will allow them to recover from hibernation. After this process, you may empty the crickets into your normal holding box.
