 All male cickets?

Hi everyone,I have just bred my 1st batch of around 500 crickets and they are now around 10-15mm after 1 month. The problem is that every single cricket appears to be male, could this be something to do with the temperature or food? How do I get females? They have been fed goldfish flakes and been kept at ambien temperature which is around 30 degrees during the day and 20 at night.

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated as without females my farm won’t work!!

Your crickets are still just youngsters. It isn’t until they get older that the females begin to show the ovipositor.
