Crickets

Postby Joan » Thu May 29, 2008 2:14 pm

If you catch your own in the yard, make sure the lawn hasn't been treated. Most on-line places that sell worms also sell crickets: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5387
Also: Fluker's http://www.flukerfarms.com/ and www.armstrongcricket.com
Trouble is, they usually come in such large volumes. Pet stores sell them, but I find them much cheaper at Bait Shops.

The local petshop sells them too and if you only have a couple of squirrels the few cents difference doesn't really matter. ;) They are 8-10 cents each at my local petsmart/petco. They also have calcium food you can feed them to make them more nutritious. My frogs eat them but Krikkit won't eat Crickets. :roll: I'll keep trying though.

They love June bugs if Texas has them. And Dragonflies ... Mishi snatched one out of my hand so fast, all Chuck got was a whiff!

We do have them but I've not seen them yet. Perhaps they are waiting for June. ;) He loved the mosquito hawks. We had tons of them a few weeks ago but now they're few and far between. I'll grab some June bugs for sure when they come out.
