man this stuff is amazing the crickets go absolutely crazy for it. Anyone know how long a pound stays good for? how often should i be feeding the cricket crack how much is enough for 1000 crickets? I 100% reccomend this to everyone who has a chameleon or reptiles happy to say with getting crickets online and having a good gutload ill never have to step in to a petsmart again for feeders!

Do you provide a water source with it since it's dry food? I tried putting both cricket crack and bug burger in together and they go after the bug burger. I'm not sure but I think it's because the bug burger has liquid in it. This is why I'm asking.

Yes it does....so what is the problem? They eat it just the same without having to provide a water source

I was told they need to have some water source to extend life span. If all I need to do is throw dry cricket crack in then that would be great news but want to be sure. There are mixed feelings it seems on the forums but that could be said for almost all topics haha .

Mandarines alone don't make a great gut load, but can be used as a component. Here's a list of the best ingredients you can include. It's recommended to mostly use items from the "best" category and then items from the "good" category can be used in addition to

Best: mustard greens, turnip greens, dandelion leaves, collard greens, escarole lettuce, papaya, watercress and alfalfa.
Good: sweet potato, carrots, oranges, mango, butternut squash, kale, apples, beet greens, blackberries, bok choy and green beans

I have no clue how long it would last you, and there are so many differing factors. Perhaps that's why you haven't gotten a response. I would think a pound would last you long enough to figure out, way in advance, when you'd need more.

Good luck!

Thats still not what im asking how often should i feed the cricket crack once a day? Every night? And how much cricket crack should i use half a cup? I know that itll run out im not worried about that.
