Crickets will barely last 6 months in their life. You can shorten their growth though.

To make them grow fast, provide a lot of food, water sources, and heat. Once they get to the size you want, kick off the heat. You can provide heat with heating pads, or red or black light bulbs. Put heat pads under the tank so that they can’t utilize the cord to get out.

Growing two thousand crickets is a hard task to do. You need to provide them with plenty of space, and plenty of material for them to live on; or else they’ll keel off.

Good luck
