how to breed crickets

This guide will teach you how to breed crickets for your reptiles, fish, birds and may other pets to eat 🙂

step 1: you will need a glass aquriam to breed them in, a 10 or 20 gallon will do fine. Line the tank with packing tape about half way up and all the way around(this will keep the baby crickes, whitch can climb glass from climbing to the top and escaping). Then you will need to line the bottem of the tank with around a inch or two of soil for the crickets to lay there eggs in. also you will need a reptile heat pad to place under the tank to help incubate the eggs to let them hatch properly. also you need a water and food dish for them.  make sure there shallow enuf for them to get out. in the water dish you can add paper towel and they will drink from it. you will also need a spray bottle to keep the soil moist to stop the eggs from drying out.

after you have all these things your ready to start by adding the tape to the inside of the tank. then adding the soil, food and water dishes and the heat pad. then you can go to your local pet store and buy about 50 adult crickets. add them to the tank and they do the rest of the work 🙂

***DO NOT GIVE CRICKETS TAP WATER BECAUSE IT USUALLY CONTAINES CLORINE, USE BOTTLED WATER***
