How Fast Do Crickets Grow?


New Member
Hey guys
I ordered crickets online for the first time a couple days ago. They came in, but I picked a size way too small (1/4"). My Veiled is a couple months old, so its not that terrible, but he was eating crickets about 1/2".

Anyways its a pain in the butt to use these, he has a hard time finding them and its tough to even hand feed cause they're so small. I purchased 1000 of them so I'll have them for awhile. How long do you guys think it'll take them to grow to about 1/2"?
They grow very fast if they are warm and you feed them properly. Another advantage of little crickets is they have a lesser die off rate. I keep mine outside and live in Florida-so they grow very fast. Mine would go from 1/4" to 1/2" in just over a week.
