Breeding crickets problems

I've decided to try and breed crickets, I have a pretty long plastic container with vermiculite as substrate and a lot of egg cartons on one side. There are 2 small containers with soil but I'm gonna change that to coco husk where the females can lay their eggs. I do not think any of the crickets are adult yet but im feeding them carrots, salad, and bell pepper. Im really wondering about the humidity and temperature as sites say different things so I don't know who to believe. Some say 70 - 75 Fahrenheit and some say 80 - 85 Fahrenheit and the same with humidity. One says 50% and one says keep it below 75%. I am currently using a heating pad under the plastic pin but not directly under it to heat it up and it is around 80 - 87 Fahrenheit. I just wanna know what is best with temperature and humidity and what works for you when you breed crickets.

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?
