Pisces Crickets can be added to the diets of many animals. They are easy to use and provide a more balanced diet to supplement prepared food and help provide the protein and roughage they would naturally acquire in the wild. Crickets are also lively game to bring out the natural hunting skills of captive animals.

How to Feed
Placing the container in a refrigerator five minutes before feeding will slow down cricket activity. Feed only enough crickets that will be eaten immediately, as escaped crickets may establish themselves under feeding containers or in the soil around the roots of plants. These crickets could damage lizard eggs or newly hatched birds during periods of darkness.

Storage
Place a cube of Pisces Aquaload or a slice of carrot every few days into the container. This way, Pisces crickets can be stored for about 1-2 weeks. For longer storage, place the crickets into a deep sided plastic or glass container with a tight fitting ventilated lid and provide some hiding places. Keep up a regular supply of Pisces Aquaload and Pisces Gutload as often as the crickets consume it, and make sure to avoid overcrowding to prevent cannibalism. The best storage temperature for crickets is between 18°C and 25°C. It is essential that they are not exposed to poisonous fumes including pest strips and cleaning supplies.
