The Ins and Outs of Keeping Crickets
So, once you have a box full of crickets at your doorstep, what do you do with them? In every order of live pet food we send, Bluebird Landing includes detailed care instructions to help you make the most of your feeders. With a little care, you can make your feeders last longer and be a healthier meal for your animals. The basics, however, are these: your crickets need a clean, dry place to live, away from chemicals and extreme heat/cold; they need moisture, and they need food. Read our Cricket Care Instructions
Choosing Cricket Sizes
The best rule of thumb? Choose a cricket that's smaller in width than the animal's mouth. It's usually better to guess small on cricket size, rather than large - your animals will still eat a cricket that's smaller than its ideal size, but if the cricket is more than a mouthful, it's too big. Our customer service representatives can help you choose the right size or combination of sizes for the animals you keep. With ten sizes to choose from, we'll certainly have the size of cricket you need!
