    This happens to me once in awhile, I usually let them die off.

    They don't live very long. If the substrate is moist at all, let it dry out and they will go away.

    The only time crickets can cause a problem is when the T is molting. At this point they are just extra food:D Keep an eye on the T, you shouldn't have any problems.

    I just catch as many as I can and throw them in a container with a balled up wet piece of toilet paper and some food. I caught some a month or so ago and they have grown a lot and not a single one has died. Just make sure to keep the source of water wet and they do well.

    No sence in wasting perfectly good T food :}

    I just put in a shallow water dish. They will jump in and drown.

    I put in a toilet paper roll and all the crickets migrate to that then I pull the roll out and transfer the crickets to my cricket cage.
