Caring for Crickets:
A bulk of one thousand adult crickets will require at least a 10-gallon aquarium. Suitable substrates for your crickets' home include egg crates and orchid bark. You should also provide dark places for hiding. It is important to clean the cage out at least once a week, or between cricket shipments.
Crickets have about an 8 week lifespan from hatching to death. So if you order 6 week old crickets you can expect them to live for approximately two weeks with food and water.
The optimum temperature range for crickets should be 70°-75°F during the day and at night. This is necessary for the crickets' metabolisms and immune systems to function properly.
You should gut-load the crickets with Fluker's High Calcium Cricket Diet 24 hours before introducing them to the reptile. You could also mix half of the High Calcium Cricket Diet with half of the Cricket Diet.
Use a small dish filled with gravel, with water just covering the gravel, or Fluker's Cricket Quencher in Original and Calcium Fortified to provide a clean water source.
Also available is Fluker's Orange Cube Complete Cricket Diet, a convenient, easy to use nutrient filled water and food source. Simply drop a few in the container with the crickets.
