Hate the feeders

Postby WreckWrack » Sat Jan 12, 2019 7:36 am

Here's the problem;
I am absolutely terrified of crickets, locusts, and all that resemble such. I'm not too scared of roaches, but the dubias they sell at my local pet store are far too big to feed my 2 month old beardie. silkworms, hornworms, and other staples not resembling crickets or locusts are out of the question because I live in the UK, and would have to order online. Every time.
Does anyone know a good way to feed my beardie locusts without having to get anywhere near them?
EDIT: I have tried a cricket keeper, but the locusts don't go in the tubes.

Order online then.

You'll get better quality feeders of any species.

You need to get past this phobia of insects if you want to give your little dragon a proper diet .

One of these is what I use to gather my crickets when my bulk orders arrive and to gather enough for each feeding : https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vacuum-Spid ... 1438.l2649 makes fast work of catching 60 - 80 crickets to go into my keeper tubs, and when I'm gathering 8 - 10 cricket to feed the lizard.
