    So my question is that could you increase the calcium content in crickets by feeding them a high Ca:P ratio diet? I know you can increase it a bit, but is it possible for crickets to have a 2:1 Ca:P ratio? Or the plus calcium only ends up in their waste? I'm not planning to stop dusting them...

    I know one of the most common questions seems to be around feeding dragons. So I apologise for posting another one. I have read so many different things, but I've not seen anything yet that gives an idea on specific quantities to expect them to eat. I now know variety is very important with...

    I was feeding my bearded dragon and then I took out one cricket and it had a clearish ball on it's back. I went to take a picture to ask some of my friends but it jumped off my hand and landed on the floor, the ball burst and is now empty? Any ideas what this could be? I tried to research it but...

    Hi all So I have a bit of a problem with some escaped Crickets. They don't seem to die and I have found one large mature female. I was going to use some upturned duct tape to catch them, but I was wondering if anyone had any better ideas for catching the crickets? Thanks for any help Dan

    I found this in a box of crickets earlier. its a bit bigger than a large black cricket. Thought it might be a turkestan (red runner) roach, but the head just looks 'different'. Literally looks like a cricket, just bright red and a bit bigger. Anyone got any ideas.............

    Hi everyone I am after advice regarding crickets. I have seen cricket dust for sale but looking at the packet it says 99% calcium carbonate. I wondered if I could just use the calcidust I have at home for the same effect. Or is there somthing special in the cricket dust? What sort of things...
