    Default Very snall scale cricket breeding? Wrong forum?

    Hey guys, this might be the wrong forum...honeslty have no clue where it should go, sorry.

    Anyways Im just wondering if it is possible to breed really small amounts of crickets. I need around 75 medium sized crickets weekly. Is it possible?

    I've heard crickets are a pain to breed. Someone said it's also pretty complex to do it. Have you heard of dubia roaches (If they're legal in your area)? These are much easier to breed and they live much longer. Hopefully someone with more cricket knowledge can tell you.

    Roaches are illegal here. What about mealworms , is super small scale breeding with mealworms possible?

    I believe so, I know a few people that breed them and it seems fairly easy. The mealworms will turn into darkling beetles, then they will breed. Here's an article that might help:

    Mealworms are easy to breed but I wouldn't recommend them for cresteds.

    I have not had a hard time breeding crickets, though they are quite stinky! Just put the adults in a container with some cardboard,food, watercrystals or potato and a thin layer of clean ( No pesticides or fertilizer) potting soil keep it moist and warm and in month or so the eggs should hatch. I use an airtight container and open it everyday to ventilate. They getv mostly dry leftover cgd as the little one get stuck if its wet and also a little fish food dog food and veggies for variety. I keep them well fed and cannibalism has not been an issue.
