Freeze dried crickets

Postby reiddragons » Sun Jan 26, 2020 11:54 am

Hi everyone,

My beardie isn't eating crickets as much as he used to. Yesterday he only ate a few and today he has not had any interest. This behviro has been going on for a while - we started using roaches instead.

I thought that I could start using either fluker's frozen crickets (which are gut loaded) or start freezing the ones I currently have alive (which I have been gutloading myself.) What do you recommend? Or should I just space out his cricket feedings to once every other day (he's not a full year old yet) and stick to more veggies?

He may just want some variety. I'd try offering the live crickets on a rotation with the roaches and maybe something like black soldier fly larvae. At his age he should still be offered bugs every day but perhaps he just wants some more options. They sometimes get bored with the same feeder all the time.

Try adding some worms to his salad -- here are some websites for worms and insects - order large as they are small and you need a glass bowl that these and the worms cant get out of - I get horn worms and butter worms from here they are out of butter worms now but if you order horn worms order small amounts as they grow really fast
www. I order silk worms from here and here
You can also get wax worms and super worms from your pet stores feed sparingly w/ all the worms
