Thank you for sharing such in-depth and great information!
Fellow beardie owner, if you'd cry if your beardie died, then you need to see this.

Perhaps these is a silly question, but what volume constitutes a dusting?

When I originally picked up our beardie Spyro I was told by the pet shop pinch of Caci dust or Vits into the crickets tub (tub 50 - 100 Crickets) give it a shake and feed. but in that tub is also the bug grub, it does not seem a very efficient way of dusting, would there even be enough on the crickets from just a pinch?!

Iwould love to know how others apply there "dustings"

I know that's a good question. :) With the calcium there is no real definite answer but just do so lightly and more often as babies [ every bug meal ] than for sub adults + adults. It's a bit of a guesstimate with every dragon, esp. since some dragons eat more insects than others and then there's calcium WITh D3 and without. I alternate those with my babies [ when I had babies ] and as they got near adulthood I only dusted every 3-4 times a week. As adults, 2-3 times a week. This seems to work for me.
