Care

Housing

Crickets in boxes can be stored in the supplied packaging. If you order the cylinder box we advice you to move the crickets to a closed bin with smooth sides (made of synthetic material or glass) and wire gauze on top. The recommended measures of the container are approx. 30 x 20 cm (L x W x H) per cylindrical contents. Adding extra climate material is advisable.

Temperature

Preferably between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius.

Nourishment

Crickets are shipped with enough food to arrive at your house in good shape. You can keep crickets well for several days when you put a small piece of carrot or apple to maintain humidity in the box.


A piece of advice for your insectivore's

Wild insectivores enjoy a varied menu that supplies them with an adequate amount of vitamins and minerals. Almost all insectivores need calcium for their bone structure. Insects, also the reared ones, contain low calcium content. Therefore it is advisable to add a high-quality calcium preparation to the nourishment of your insectivore. Kreca has excellent calcium- and vitamin preparations in its assortment.
