Cricket Stuff

For decades the staple food items for insectivores has been the Common House Cricket (Acheta domesticus). Their jumpy movements make them irresistible to herps of all kinds. The crickets we offer in store and for online shipping is a mix of the common house cricket(Acheta domesticus) and banded crickets(Gryllodes sigillatus).
Banded crickets have a softer exo skeleton than most other crickets sold as reptile feeders.  This makes them easier to digest.  Banded crickets also have a much quieter call than others, which makes them less noisy in your home.  

Be sure to dust them with a fine CALCIUM when served! Also include a quality vitamin a few days a week.  

Feeding or "gut loading" is a must ! The hard chitinous exoskeleton of a cricket has little nutritional value on its own. 

At Jungle Bobs Reptile World we offer food to our crickets 24/7 so they are plump and their stomachs are full of good food when they meet your reptile, amphibian or invertebrate.  They will pass on the food in their gut to your happy herp when ingested. 

Before they meet their fate, here are a variety of items to keep them alive, well fed and nutritious. Be sure to stock up on "Cricket Stuff" as your herps are what they eat!
