    So awesome

    By Tina on Feb 13, 2021

    This cricket pen is awesome. I was reading some reviews that said the crickets escaped. Don’t see how that is possible. I’ve had mine for 2 weeks and, have 20 small crickets and not one has escaped! Love the sponge water dish, I watch them sit on it and drink. They drink a lot, remember to keep the sponge This cricket pen is awesome. I was reading some reviews that said the crickets escaped. Don’t see how that is possible.

The tubes are awesome! Makes feeding my salamander, so simple. Going to order another one so I can have something to put them in while cleaning out each pen. Highly recommend this. There was a small crack down the side, when I got it but I just covered it with clear packing tape. Hasn’t caused any issues. … more

    Crickets everywhere

    By Amanda on Jan 13, 2021

    Don't bother. Crickets can basically walk right out of this thing. After losing a whole batch of "small-medium" crickets overnight, I taped up most of the top. Went back to local pet store and bought more crickets. Half escaped. Put this box inside a 2-gallon Ziploc bag with the top unzipped but, raised Don't bother.

    Cracked cricket keeper

    By on

    I love Chewy and have always had 100% success. I ordered a cricket keeper. It was cracked. I messaged Chewy, they immediately shipped me another one. Got it the next day. Didn’t open it until yesterday when we bought new crickets. It’s also cracked. We decided duct tape would be the best approach and we’ll make it work.

    Best way to take care of my "cricks"!!

    By on

    I had my crickets in a lidded bucket before. Was a little difficult to scoop 1 with a cup! The little nasty buggars would jump up my arm while I tried to get just 1 out! This container is awesome!!! I just take a tube and hang it over my frog's cage and tap the tube like ashing a cigarette and one falls in! Simple! I love it! Also very easy to clean up.

    WASTE OF TIME & MONEY

    By on

    I was so excited to start getting my crickets 50 at a time. Only 2 or 3 even went up the tubes and they all died in just a few days. I went and bought 50 again...same thing. I cleaned it out and put it away. I guess I'll just buy them 12 at a time and just put them in with my lizards. I kept bottled water and the yellow gelled food in there for them too but it seemed to be a lost cause. I'm disappointed and done.

    Escapees with smaller crickets

    By on

    I was pretty excited to have this new pen just as my new shipment of half inch crickets came in. They really did go right into the tubes! Seemed all good. Then I checked on them later and... Disappointment. I had to chase a few escape artists around my daughter's room. What is the point of all the great extra features if it does not fulfill it's prime function of keeping the crickets in? I had to run to Lowe's and buy a bin, modify the lid, and hot glue on some aluminum mesh to keep these bugs out of my daughter's room. What a waste. I did use the food and water dishes in the new bin though!!
