At Top Hat Cricket Farm, we carry the banded cricket also known as the Gyllodes sigillatus. While we guarantee that the feeder crickets you buy online will be alive and healthy when they reach you, the best way to get your money’s worth is to ensure your crickets live as long as possible and are as nutritious as possible for your pet. In this post, we will go over how you should take care of your feeder crickets in order to keep them nutritious and alive as long as possible.

Keep your feeder crickets in a plastic container. It should be large enough that your crickets can move and jump around freely. If your crickets are overcrowded, they will not live nearly as long. Your crickets should also be kept at a temperature of 70 to 75 degrees. A heat light is not necessary, unless that’s the easiest way to get the temperature into the proper range.

Feeding crickets is easy. Simply leave fruits or vegetables, such as apples or potatoes in the container with them. They also need to be hydrated. If you have large crickets, you can leave a shallow water dish, if they’re small and at risk of drowning, use water-soaked sponges instead.

Like with any animal under your care, you need to make sure that the living area is kept clean by wiping down the interior of the container with a clean, moist towel. You should also make sure any accessories or supplies are regularly disinfected and cleaned, as well.
