Default Incubation/ventilation

Should i have holes in my cricket tubs containing my substrate and eggs? I dont at the moment .
Is this preventing ventilation?

no do not put holes in your tubs they should be air tight. They way to provide them will adequate ventilation is to lift the lid of a couple of times per week for a few mitutes just to let fresh air in.

If you were to put holes in the tubs then the eggs would probably go moldy
