I use the cricket pen but I really should switch to a tub since the keepers cannot support as many crickets as I need.
As for the food, do not buy that stuff it has no nutritional value to the cham. Buy cricket crack or bug burger. I provide both to my feeders.
If your going to buy a cricket pen, buy the big one. Thats the size we are using and it works great unless you hold more then a 100 large.
This stuff has worked great for me when I am using a dry gutload https://www.joshsfrogs.com/josh-s-frogs-insect-watering-gel-16-oz.htmlthank you that’s what I figured but how do you keep the crickets hydrated??
Your welcome! Happy to help.Thanks, I was just about to buy the small Kricket Keeper. I do love this place!
Exactly why I swap them out to the other pen every few days and then every time I get a new batch lol. Nastyyyyyy when they are left there.Definitely get the large cricket pen, like Beman I have two so I can rotate, I keep about 75-100 at a time, crickets are smelly so I clean everyday and rotate them to a clean pen with fresh fruit and veggies. It’s a lot of work but they stink less that way
