Trusted cricket supplier

Postby Valntina » Fri Jan 08, 2021 8:16 am

Hi everyone,
I’ve just recently brought home a 2-3 month old beardie 3 days ago. I tried feeding him pellets, freeze dried crickets and mealworms, along with some greens and a little bit of fruit. He seems to only eat the greens and apple, maybe a tiny bit of the freeze dried mealworms, but he won’t eat any pellets or freeze dried crickets. He had also been eating very little since I brought him home and I’m starting to worry. I heard they don’t really eat freeze dried insects so I’m thinking of buying live crickets from online. I’m just concerned about him contracting a parasite or something from live crickets, are there any suppliers that sell healthy crickets that I could trust he won’t contract anything from?

I would look up any reptile stores near you, and buy crickets from them.

I would skip the crickets and get him some dubia roaches they are way more nutritional --- great silk worms and dubia roaches also small super worms
I would also get him some BSFL to compliment the roaches you will need a glass or ceramic bowl to feed them in something like this ... cx_mr_hp_d
If you need more help please ask

Do not feed freeze dried or pellets to a bearded dragon unless you are in some natural disaster and need to get some sort of semi-nutritious thing into their system. As I don’t think you are escaping a wildfire or hiding out from a tornado for a few days, you should always use live insects.
