    They will eat your hand if you chop it off and leave it for them...but the broccoli will do.

    I ran into an issue with Broccoli and my roaches.

    When I fed them grapes, melon, carrots the frass was not all that unpleasant, however after one feeding of broccoli the smell was considerably worse.

    As for health of the animals eating these crickets - I see no reason it would be harmful.

    I second the smell issue with uneaten broccoli that's been sitting in cage for 24+ hours. It is the broccoli itself that stinks.

    +1 Crickets will eat almost anything. I will agree with the potential smell issue, but they'll most certainly eat it.
