Feed your pet a tasty, lively treat with live crickets. Crickets are natural prey for a variety of companion pets including lizards, amphibians and arachnids. If you have a leopard gecko, a green tree frog or an emperor scorpion, odds are that your pet would love to eat a cricket. Feeder crickets are irresistible to insect-eating pets; chasing live crickets around a terrarium makes mealtime both fun and exciting! Vita-Bugs Live Crickets are naturally appealing and nutritious. You can increase the crickets' nutritional value by using supplements or vitamin additives. Some supplements can be sprayed onto crickets while others can be consumed. These supplements add calcium and other essential nutrients required in a proper lizard or frog diet. Vita-Bugs Crickets are available in a variety of sizes to suit many ages and types of pets. Smaller sized crickets (pinhead, 1/4" and 1/2") are ideal for smaller or young pets. Adult crickets should be reserved for full size pets of the appropriate size. A cricket that is too large may be inedible. Understanding the needs of your pet's type and age will help you determine which size of cricket is best for feeding. Be sure to watch your pet when feeding live crickets; live uneaten food should be removed from your terrarium to prevent crickets from injuring a resting pet. Vita-Bugs Live Crickets are for sale in bulk quantities, so you will want to make sure you have the right supplies to maintain your crickets until feeding time. Feeder crickets benefit from specialized cricket diets and gel drinks that provide nutrients and hydration without the risk of drowning. Food for crickets is designed to nourish not just crickets but also your pets; by gut loading your crickets, you can increase their nutritional value before you feed them to your own reptile, amphibian or arachnid.
