Advertisement Hi everybody! I don't keep any inverts right now, but I've been thinking about getting a tarantula, and I just had a question about feeders. Is it alright to exclusively feed just one species of insect? Like only feeding crickets or mealworms? The reason I ask is because I've had to deal with crickets in the past, and frankly, I would rather not have to deal with them again if I can avoid it. Would it be healthier for the T to have more variation in its diet, or would it do fine on just mealworms? And also, if I do need to feed crickets, how many would be best to buy at a time? I would only have one tarantula, so I wouldn't really need a huge amount of crickets at a time, but they die pretty fast, so it could end up being pretty annoying to run out to the store to buy more every week or two. And also, because I know somebody is going to say it: No, sadly I cant use roaches. Tropical roaches are illegal in Canada, and even though its not like the FBI is raiding houses to make sure nobody is hiding any dubias, there still isn't anywhere I can go to buy them. Sorry if any of my questions are kinda dumb! Its just that crickets are annoying, and if I could avoid them without complicating the tarantula's health that would be great.
