Come to think of it I would throw a couple of small super worms and wax worms in with the crickets also, they were kind of cannibals so I gave them something else to nibble on that was moving. They loved the wax worms. U

Cricket food formulated for crickets is ok but fresh veg every few days is ideal for staple.
Sugar snap peas they like also.
Zucchini is another good one. I always found the potato rotted to quickly anyhow.



thanks alot ill try all those out hey can u please find my most recent topic about housing beardies and lend me some advice?

Does anyone have any information on Flukers crickets? I just placed an order over the weekend that should be here either by end of today or tomorrow.

It seems like superworms are being sold out faster though... I wonder if people are buying those instead now.


i get mine from pet supplies plus also and mine seem to have the virus. I'll buy 1,000 from them and within the first day a hundred or two will die randomly.

I just got off the phone with my cricket breeder (I had to place an order) and they are not seeing an unusual death rates with their crickets. They are also not breeding any type of cricket except the standard american brown cricket.

I use http://www.millbrookcrickets.com



I am looking into getting a bearded dragon for my son. What size crickets do I need to get him, I have not looked at any actual dragons yet so I don't know the size I will be getting. I'm going to get it from petsmart because I know someone that works there and I can get a discount.

Do you have a recommendation, other than the space between their eyes, for the size of cricket? I dont want to order 1K crickets and it be to big, or too small.

Thanks

You should be ok going with 1/4 size crickets. My little guys was on the 1/4 sized crickets when he was a month and 6 days old (when I got him).
