Considering banded crickets from Josh's Frogs.
I would like to know if these are a feeder that is a good idea for Maya. I did feed him the Acheta Domesticus cricket when he was a baby and juvenile, but then he contracted pinworms from those crickets. So, I switched him to Dubia roaches. Hearing all the benefits of them. Now, he cannot eat them due to the high uric acid in them.
I'm wondering about the Banded Crickets and whether they have a high uric acid rate in them.
I do want him to have a variety of protein. But, I don't want him to become ill from a bad choice.

Since he's 9 years old, he's slowly leaning towards his greens more often. But, I'm sure he would love to have some insects. I don't know if he'll be able to chase them down yet.

Banded crickets are superior to others, they live longer and are supposedly cleaner (of parasites and such).

Personally i HATE crickets they are the most bothersome creatures to ever exist lol. I'm pretty sure they were put on this earth to torment poor beardie keepers.
But i did have better luck keeping the banded ones alive though. When i finally (crossing my fingers) start having hatchlings the banded is what i will buy.

I don't like them either. They used to keep me awake all night with their chirping. I stored them in my bedroom.

lol. One legged crickets. I'll probably have to hand feed them all to the goofball who's all sprawled out on his pillow bed. He seemed to be uncomfortable on me tonight because I was wearing something annoying to him.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
