Hi there, strangers of the internet. I have a 5 month old beardie who's been plowing through 20 crickets a day at this point, if I'm being totally honest it's starting to get a bit expensive... About 10 dollars a week for 70 crickets that disappear in no time! God- half of them die off before I can feed them! I can't keep doing this! How on earth can I keep these things alive? They are kept in a 13" long 10" wide plastic tub with decent airflow and lots of room to climb, I'm going to drill some holes in the sides tomorrow morning and I'll try to add a mesh on the top if I can... They are offered the greens I feed my beardie to gutload them along with some of that weird Fluker's cricket diet, the food is replaced when ever necessary. They aren't dehydrated... Did I get the temps wrong? They aren't kept anywhere special, they are in 67-84 degree temps (maybe a bit on the cool side, my city is going through a heat strike atm so the ac is cranked). Please, please, please help me out on this- I swear if this keeps up I'll go broke (ok, not broke but it's gonna take a number on my bank account.) Any and all advice is welcome, darn it, I just want to feed my animals! Why is everything so darn expensive?
My girls about 5 months old ive seen her mow down 100 in a day shes crazy there are some websites to order bulk for cheaper so were i order its 13-14$ for 250 i also get bsfls i order by the 1000$ as my beardie refuses salads only eats small pieces from my hand no matter what i try

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?
