Live Crickets Are The Most Common Feeder Insects

Live crickets are used as live feeders for the reptile and arachnid industry, they are the most widely used live food available. Live crickets are a very versatile insect. In addition to reptiles and arachnids, live crickets are also a useful protein source for small mammals such as hedgehogs and hamsters. Live crickets can be substituted for mealworms for pet birds. Finches and other smaller birds are especially fond of crickets.

Live crickets are also an excellent fishing bait, especially during the heat of summer. You can use live crickets to catch small pan fish found in most lakes, ponds and streams as well as bass, pickerel, bream, catfish and trout. Live crickets can be fastened to hooks with a small rubber band.
