I keep live mealworms for the wild birds and I mix this with the Fluker's mealworm diet which is much more expensive.
I have been using this for about a week now with baby crickets, they are fat and healthy and have all stayed alive. Nothing bad to say about this product
i use this for crickets and my roaches they all love it
Crickets love this. One of my Crickets main diet.
I feed this to my crickets , superworm colony, hissing cockroach colony, and Dubai roach colony. And all love it. Especially the hissing cockroaches. I feed this with potatoes and carrots and manages to keep my crickets alive for two weeks! Definitely recommend if your crickets die fast. Plus way better than the jelly cube things I’ve seen those dry up or tend to mold. This does not. Also a lot bigger than expected!
As soon as I put some of this into my cricket container, they immediately go for it! I'm very happy with this purchase.
It is very hard for me to rate this product because I tried it to gut load my crickets to feed to my bearded dragon. My beardie has a very sensitive stomach so I have to watch what I feed my crickets. When I switched the crickets to this food he didn't respond well to it. I've known others though who swear by this food! It really depends on your reptile and their preferences. It's worth a try!
In my opinion, any feeder insect colony does well with a light bedding of this. Phenomenal for producing healthy stock in insects and quality meals for my babies. I buy it by the 6lb jar just to save time and money. It makes a great bedding so i just change it when it needs cleaned and I don't have to worry about anything starving, i can just put in a dish with organic material after that.
I feed this to my mealworm farms. They love it and grow quickly because of it.
So with my having to keep crickets now for an inherited tarantula, I tried a different brand of food for the crickets but they didn't touch it. I decided to try this food for them. What a difference! They loved it! I put about a 1/2 teaspoon in an empty water bottle top and placed it in their home. They immediately went after it! I feel good feeding them this as it's high calcium. Healthier crickets make for a healthier tarantula. Thank you Chewy for offering a good selection of different products and a great customer service team! They're the best!
