From what I understand at this point in my learning, keeping crickets alive can be a tricky thing to attempt. Does anyone have any tips on raising your own feeder crickets, or keeping a large order of crickets alive for future feeding?
Tried that and got to the point where I was changing the moist food daily and picking out the corpses twice a day. Still had a 90% mortality rate.Water gel and dog food is just too rich of a diet for crickets. It works excellent as a gutload, but crickets who are on a diet of this will definately die in no time. To keep it real simple, (and this is how the cricket breeding companies do it), all you have to supply is carrots and potatoes, and take them out and add fresh ones once or twice a week.
