A bulk of one thousand adult crickets will require at least a 10-gallon aquarium. Suitable substrates for your cricket's home include egg crates and orchid bark. You should also provide dark places for hiding. It is important to clean the cage out at least once a week, or between cricket shipments. 

The optimum temperature range for crickets should be 70-75F during the day and at night. This is necessary for the crickets metabolism and immune system to function properly.

Crickets are omnivorous, they will eat both plants and meat. Feed the crickets Fluker's Cricket Diet as the staple food diet to provide protein, and to keep the crickets meaty. You should gut load the crickets with Fluker's High Calcium Cricket diet 24 hours before introducing it to the reptile. You could also mix half of the High Calcium Cricket Diet with half of the Cricket Diet.

Use a small dish filled with gravel, with water just covering the gravel, or Fluker's Cricket Quenchers, in Original and Calcium Fortified, to provide a clean water source.
 
Also available is Fluker's Orange Cube complete crickets diet, a convenient, easy-to-use nutrient filled water and food source. Simply drop a few in the container with the crickets.


*Note: Fluker Farm's sponsored a grant with Louisiana State University to breed crickets. Dr. Joseph Woodring selectively bred crickets by taking the top 10% heaviest at maturity, and then repeating the process. These crickets were incorporated into our breeding stock, for stronger healthier crickets.
