white kneed-king cricket questions from a new keeper

Nephila Edulis

Feb 27, 2017
Found some of these guys for sale online and I'm really interested in keeping them. So far I haven't found any good enclosures online that I can fill with 10cm of soil. The crickets dig deep burrows but are sold as juveniles, will the burrow still be as deep as that of an adult? Will the king cricket happily eat apple, carrot, melon or leaf litter? How often should I feed the king cricket feeder insects (roaches, mealworms and smaller crickets)? If anybody can give me a link to a site that's selling a 25 cm deep enclosure with no vents on the side, that'd be great. Do I need to let them burrow? Or can I just provide a few deep hides
