When your crickets arrive place them in a container with ventilation. If you are ordering the classic pack you can simply leave them in the container they arrive in.
Feed them on cos lettuce and carrot. This is their main source of water so its important to keep them fresh. Avoid using an open water dish as they will all jump in and they are NOT good swimmers. The smaller crickets will have trouble eating carrot so just the lettuce for them. Remove and replace the veggies every couple of days. You can also add some high protein pellet food like chick starter.
If you want to give them a water dish make sure there is a sponge in the bowl so they cant drown.
Use the egg carton that comes with the crickets for them to hide out in.
Keep them nice and warm, around 25-26c, but don't let them get too humid. Ventilation is key.
We do our best to keep the crickets warm on their journey to you, however overnight temps in winter in some areas can drop lower then the ideal for crickets. On arrival take a little time to slowly warm them back up to 26c. They may all be lying on their backs with their feet in the air, but, in most cases they will roll over again.
