 Cricket Gut Loading Recipe

This is how I gut load my crickets:)




If you can’t tell what is specifically in there, here is a list:
-small schunks of carrots
-a tiny peice of strawberry
-some tropical fish flakes
-one Fluker’s Cricket Cube
-a small spoonful of Fluker’s Cricket Quencher
-One small spinach leaf torn up
-a small peice of rasberry
-one blueberry split in half

That’s all the ingredients with just a little bit of calcium and repti-vite sprinkled on top, all in a "cabbage bowl":) I use this to gut load my crickets (currently I have 40) for my anole:)

How do you gut load your crickets?

I feed my crickets mixed veggies, usually spring mix lettuce, spinach, a small piece of a carrot, raw kale, some fruit, eg: cantaloupe, blueberries, or whatever is in the house. They also tend to be a big fan of the kale, unlike me.

Yeah, I change mine up every day:) Ever since I started "heating" (putting a heat pad) under my cricket tank, the cabbage bowl has been drying up and the crickts eat all the cricket quencher:P I’m starting to breed crickets, so I’m trying to grow the ones I have now to adults:)

I’m trying to grow mine as fast as I can so I can start a cricket colony:) So far, there hasn’t been much progress:(
