Cricket keeping

Fresh fruit and/ or vegetables twice a week and lots of fresh nettles from spring to late autumn.
Homemade cricket food once a week: 1/3 oatmeal 1/3 grass meal 1/3 dry cat food The whole thing is ground very finely and then minerals, trace elements and vitamins are added.
Water dispenser with a large and flat stand. The perforated aluminum sheet protects the crickets from drowning. For very small crickets, a piece of foam is also placed in the foot.
On the front side, 5 cm ventilation grids were attached. Additional ventilation holes have been drilled in the lid to ensure good ventilation of the boxes.
The SAMLA boxes from IKEA are simply set up and are therefore very easy to clean: 2-3 cm beech wood granulate which is replaced regularly half egg cartons, which are also exchanged regularly Water container with a large and flat stand Feed container
