Drove 2 hours home after spending 35.00 on crickets to find every one of the 10 boxes I bought had 5 or less. Some had only 2 in the whole box and not even any dead ones. I&rsquo;m beyond upset. Considering the 40 in gas, I just paid 1.66 per cricket. We never count cause no one has time for that but with individual packs that were pretty much empty it wasn&rsquo;t hard.

NEVER. First off, they can carry underlying diseases that are introduced into the native wild population. Even a harmless cricket. Think of settlers from Europe introducing measles to the native Americans. Who knew? Better to sacrifice one animal than to kill thousands in the local population. Sounds cruel to an animal lover, but that is life. A second example is pet store Boa Constrictors were release by owners tired of them in Florida rather than euthanize the animal and now Florida has a big problem with non-native Boa. Any vet can euthanize. <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: JMLorenz</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2020-01-03</div> </div> </div> <div class="bvseo-question-answer" data-questionid="5171301"> <h2 class="bvseo-question"> how can i get the crickets to chirp? </h2> <div class="bvseo-question-detail"> </div> <div class="bvseo-author">Asked by: mealworm569</div> <div class="bvseo-answer" data-answerid="5355801"> Only adult males will sing, as stated before. How to tell apart- Females have a &amp;quot;stick&amp;quot; in their butt, which is the ovipositor. The chirping is to entice a female to mate with him but they will sing when they are alone (i.e. loose). As a general rule only adult insects have wings with mayflies being the only exception. The warmer the room or container, the more likely it will sing. I raise crickets and have observed many a male cricket singing his heart out, only to be snubbed by the nearby female who walks away.
