I have fallen in love with my cricket keeper. I am now able to keep crickets and very few die. I have a small cricket keeper and get approx. 30 large crickets at a time.The only thing I dislike is how annoying it is to clean between batches of crickets. The clear plastic part is very easy to clean however it is somewhat difficult to clean the black tubes. I have been soaking them in hot water and then using a soapy paper towel to try to wash inside of the tubes. Is there a more efficient way to do this?
