Crickets (Acheta domesticus) are a very popular feeder insect for reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, and other exotic pets. There's a common myth that crickets should be avoided as a feeder because they're low-quality nutrition and more likely to infect your pet with parasites. So here's some facts to clear things up:

  • Crickets are a good source of essential nutrients.
  • They are no more likely to have parasites than any other feeder.
  • Crickets' natural movement stimulates reptiles and amphibians to eat.
  • A feeder insect is only as good as the food it's fed and the quality of the facility that produced it.

For best results, use crickets as part of a rotation of feeder insects such as dubia roaches, black soldier fly larvae, and hornworms. Variety is key to a balanced diet!
