Live crickets suitable for most reptiles
What is a Swell Live Black Field Crickets Pre-Pack?
Swell Live Black Field Crickets Pre-Packs are bundles, sometimes called a day pack, of Black crickets that have been specifically bred as reptile food. Black crickets are suitable for many of the most popular reptile and amphibian diets - for further information on feeding exotic pets you can check out our range of care guides.
Bearded dragons, Water dragons, chameleons, Leopard geckos and Crested geckos are all known to enjoy the insects as well as frogs and even birds. The Black field cricket is a big and meaty insect, ideal for making up the staple diet of many pets. Black crickets provide much more nutrients than Brown crickets, while also not being as jumpy.
Where do Black field crickets live?
Black field crickets are native to Australia and New Zealand, where they are considered a pest due to their hearty appetite for plant matter. This means that Black field crickets are comfortable with high-temperature environments, making them ideal for serving to lizards.
How long do Black field crickets live?
We deliver our Black field crickets as fast as possible to ensure you receive them young and with plenty of time to serve them. Live crickets will last about a month when kept correctly with plenty of food and water to keep them nourished.
What can I feed Black crickets?
You can serve Black crickets bran and rolled oats to give them plenty of energy. However, before serving the crickets as reptile food you can gut load them with high-vitamin fruits and dust them with calcium powder to give your pet a well-rounded meal.
