Food for Crickets

Many reptile owners keep crickets on hand to feed to their snakes, lizards and other reptiles and amphibians. Crickets make a tasty, nutritious meal for many of the most popular pet lizards, and when we refer to cricket food here, we mean food to nourish feeder crickets for larger animals. Not many peole keep crickets as pets, but they do keep crickets to feed their pet snakes and lizards. It’s not easy to go around your house and neighborhood collecting crickets to feed your pets. For this reason, you can order crickets from an online store like Zen Pet Supplies. By ordering crickets in bulk, you will know you have plenty of food on hand for your pets that that provides the nutrients they need to live a long, healthy life and that taste good (to them!). Let’s take a look at some of the cricket food on sale now at Zen Pet Supplies, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for, please check back soon because we update our inventory on a regular basis.
Crickets are omnivores and scavengers by nature, and they’ll eat just about anything they can get their little paws on, even fellow crickets. Yes, you read that correctly. Crickets are one of those low life forms that will feed on its own kind when hungry enough. If you keep crickets at home to feed your reptiles, you wan to feed them a highly nutritious diet, especially since they’re going to be lunch and dinner for your reptiles and amphibians. Crickets require a dry source of food, as well as a watery or fresh source of food, so, in order to provide your feeder crickets a well-balanced diet, you can choose both types here at our online store.

Dairy products can be used for cricket dry or wet food sources. Dry milk is often used as an ingredient in cricket gut-loading recipes (gut-loading is a term used for the process of stuffing crickets with nutritious foods right before you feed them to your lizards, frogs, snakes or other pet). Gut-loading recipes typically consist of a mixture of all of the healthiest foods that you are already feed your crickets. The difference between regular feeding and gut loading is that when you gut load, you are combining multiple types of foods together to overload the nutritional value, so your pet reptiles and amphibians get all the nutrients they need to thrive. Zen Pet Supplies has a number of cricket food choices available now, and many of them are priced under $5!
