Cricket Care Sheet

  • Keep crickets between 85 and 90 degrees; they will die rapidly at lower or higher temps.  We recommend using a heat bulb or temperature-controlled heat mat/tape.
  • When crickets arrive, empty them out into a cage or commercial bin, place egg cartons on the inside wall of the cage, add cricket food and water crystals. Fresh fruits and veggies are recommended. Any fresh food should be cycled out every 24 hours.
  • Provided water crystals and food daily. We cycle every day with cricket chow or veggies/fruits. Do not let food mold.
  • Crickets along with any other feeder insects should be kept away from chemicals, especially cleaning supplies not animal safe.
