Help keep your critters safe with Zilla’s Reptile Cricket Water Pillows. Hydrating crickets with an open water dish can be potentially hazardous since there's always a risk of them falling in, but with these unique polymer pillows, crickets can safely get the water they need! The polymer is designed to steadily offer moisture and absorb water less quickly than a paper towel or sponge. And they are easy to use—simply moisten the water pillow and place it inside your reptile’s terrarium. Not only are they safe for your reptile and designed to help keep crickets alive longer, but they are great for hydrating hermit crabs too!
Designed to help keep crickets hydrated without the risk of drinking from an open water dish.
A moistened water pillow can offer a supply of water for multiple days.
The reusable water pillows can easily be re-hydrated with more water once they dry up.
Perfectly suitable for terrariums and insect cages or carriers.
Water pillows can also be used to help hydrate hermit crabs.
I placed 3 in their terrarium and they never touched any of them except to go over to get somewhere else.

Leaks after water gets absorbed

Once they absorb water they seams leak horribly. I bought 5 packs and one 3 of the squares didn't leak out gel everywhere, some never even used!
Great for some insects

These work great for small crickets & meal beetles. Larger crickets will lay eggs in them, though, & mealworms & waxworms will chew into them, drowning inside. I always refill mine daily & they work great for my 3/8-1/2 crickets & mealworm breeder beetles.

Works but had an odd mishap

These water pillows work great for holding moisture for longer periods of time without having to worry about your insects drowning.
The problem was that, apparently, they're the perfect breeding ground for flies and gnats. Some got into our live cricket habitat and laid their eggs into the water pillows. When they hatched into larvae, the pillows burst and made a mess of the gel that was inside to retain water (not to mention fly larvae). It was pretty gross.

They work great for crickets. I decided to throw one in with my superworms so they would have water too and they just burrowed into it lol. So I would not suggest trying that haha.

They are good until they dry out in 2 days. I live in the desert & it gets pretty dry up here. I am having to soak them every 2 days. They could be better & you don't carry live crickets.
