Thought I'd try the cubes for a change. Only problem is my crickets don't like them! Have used Fluker's dry cricket food for years, along with polyacrylamide water crystals with great success--almost zero mortality! I'll supplement with these to use them up. Maybe Kentucky crickets are too finicky!
Keeps Crickets Healthy & Alive!! 6/26/2013
My husband & I are becoming quite the cricket keeper experts since we bought a couple dragons (bearded & frilled) who are both big fat pigs. We were finding they ate more crickets than we felt like going out to the local pet store each week to buy, so we started buying them in bulk but the only way we have been able to ensure less than a 5% mortality rate is when we gave a combination of these orange cubes, blue cricket drink, and cricket dust food daily. Great Product!
Helps to keep Crickets alive 2/27/2013
I'm no expert. I purchase crickets about every 2 weeks to feed to a couple of anoles. This product is a lot easier than other things I've tried and the mortality rate is minimal.
Great Gut Load! 12/9/2012
While no cricket gut load by itself is a "complete" diet, this is as close as it comes! I use this for both crickets and mealworms. Although I also supplement my crickets diet with carrots and celery, I have found that the orange cubes by themselves are still a fantastic gut load.
