Ihave 14 tarantulas so i have a lot of crickets on hand all time , from pin heads to adults.

so i had a few questions

what is the best food to gut load crickets with ?

when a cricket turns really dark does it mean its going to molt soon?

When females have babies how many eggs does one female lay?

how long does it take for a baby pinhead to emerge?

and the average lifespan of crickets is two weeks right?

fresh fruits and veggies or get the gut load food at your local pet prison

if the cricket is adult and is turning black, it means it will be dead soon

no clue on eggs

depends on temps and humidity

average lifespan is close to 6 weeks maybe a bit longer

You can increase the lifespan of your crickets by storin them in a cool place. I put mines in the basement, i have had some adults since Jan. this yr and they are still alive. And eggs take 1-3weeks to hatch and can take some where from weeks to months dependin on temp./feed to reach adult size.
