T hey are excellent...however they apparently can constipate a cham if fed exclusively after about 5 days. Its best to always mix up your feeders. Either a variety each day or a few days of one then something new.

I use a $60 wine fridge at 56 degrees and i have kept them alive for almost 6 months and counting will be 6 months October 1st). I paid like $16 for 1000. Cheaper if you buy more. I dont think you can get crickets that cheap once you pay shipping and there are few deaths and way easier. I do nothing but take some out every week or so to let them pupate. I dont feed them, i dont spray them, nothing until i take them out. Then i give them a carrot or something as gutload. They are dumb so i open the cage, open the cup, tap the cup a few times until they fly into the cage. Had maybe 2 escape and they are easily caught.

In other words, I recommend them.

What i would do is let them pupate. She will eat the flies. But you need to keep trying her on new things. Does she eat from you hand? If not get her to by starting with her favorite.

Just looking at this thread - how do you go about letting them pupate?
