Cricket Care
Crickets require proper care to thrive.
They need a well-ventilated container or terrarium with a lid to keep them safe and secure.
The ideal temperature for crickets is between 20-25°C.

Humidity
Crickets are sensitive to high humidity levels, so it is important to keep the humidity in their enclosure low.
You can do this by providing a substrate that absorbs moisture, such as paper towels or egg cartons.
You should also avoid placing the enclosure in direct sunlight or near a heat source.

Food and Water
Crickets are a common food source for pet reptiles and amphibians.
To ensure that your crickets are healthy and nutritious, it is important to feed them a balanced diet.

It is important to provide them with fresh water daily and the best way to provide water is using slices of fresh fruit or vegetables that have a high water content such as potatoes, apples or oranges. The crickets will suck all of the moisture out of the fruit or vegetable slices. 

Dry food:
Crickets need a dry food source that provides them with energy and nutrients.
Some good options for dry food include:

  • Crushed cat food
  • Dog food
  • Chicken feed
  • Mixed seeds and nuts
  • Alfalfa

Wet food:
Crickets also need a wet food source that provides them with moisture and vitamins.
Some good options for wet food include:

  • Lettuce
  • Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Slices of fruit

Gut loading:
In addition to providing crickets with a balanced diet, it is also important to gut load them.
Gut loading is the process of feeding crickets nutritious foods so that those nutrients are passed on to your pet reptile or amphibian when the crickets are eaten. Some good options for gut loading crickets include:

Cleaning
The cricket enclosure should be cleaned regularly to prevent the buildup of waste and bacteria.
You should remove any dead crickets or uneaten food and replace soiled substrates.

Why choose Minibeasts Crickets?
The nutritional quality of the insects you feed your pet is important.
It is hard to find information about the nutritional quality of insects because producers know that all insects are not created equal.
Some insects are more nutritious than others, and producers can grow insects at a lower cost using lower-grade foods. However, this results in the insects having a poor nutritional profile.

If you are looking for a nutritious and convenient way to feed your pet reptile, then Minibeasts Crickets are the perfect choice.
