If you own a reptile that eats crickets, you usually have to go to the pet supply store each week and purchase some. It can get to be a nuisance and if you have many pets to feed, you might fare better with a home supply of crickets. Once you get your cricket farm started, you should have a constant supply of crickets available to you. Alternately, you can raise crickets in your home to sell to other people with pets, or to the pet store.
Place about five egg carton bottoms vertically in the container. Stand them up on their sides, standing next to each other in a row. The crickets will use the egg pockets for homes.
Place commercially prepared cricket food into another margarine dish, or use cat food along with some chopped green vegetables. Put the container into the habitat and place another ramp so the baby crickets can get to the food.
