What should I know about cricket care?

Primarily you should know that, like most things, the better you take care of them, the longer they will last. Make sure they always have access to fresh water either through a sponge or in a shallow dish (for larger crickets). Smaller crickets may drown in standing water. A clean, healthy environment promotes longer life and less odor. Wipe down the inside of your cricket container with a damp paper towel and rinse all parts of the watering device in clean water several times a week.

Frequently clean cricket care supplies with a mild bleach solution, soak for five minutes. This will ensure that everything is kept as clean as possible. Make sure to rinse more than you feel necessary to be sure that all of the bleaching solution is gone.
