Zoo Med Natural Cricket Care, 10oz
Feeder insects are only as good as the food that they eat. If you keep them well-fed with nutritious food, then they will be nutritious for your pet reptile, amphibian, or invertebrate to eat. However, if you starve them or give them low-quality food, then they will have very little to offer to your pet, which can affect your pet's health.
Crickets are one of the most popular feeders for insectivorous reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. However, the ones sold in stores are often under- or poorly-fed. Zoo Med Natural Cricket Care gutload is designed to help correct this problem by providing a high-quality, plant-based diet to restore crickets' nutritional value.
Instructions for Use:
Add a small amount of food to a shallow food dish in the crickets' cage. Provide water crystals in a separate shallow dish, or mix the food with enough water to form a thin paste.
Allow crickets to eat Zoo Med Natural Cricket Care for 24-48 hours before feeding them to your reptiles. Dust crickets with a reptile calcium supplement powder prior to feeding.
Store Zoo Med Natural Cricket Care in a cool, dry place.
