6-inch Cricket Basket
Our cricket basket is 6" in diameter and keeps large crickets fresh with lots of aeration through the screened sides made with wire hard cloth.
Makes a great spot to store large crickets - up to 150 - until feeding or to tote along on a fishing trip.
They will live MUCH LONGER if fed a gel type food (e.g. Repashy Bug Burger) and kept near a heat source to be toasty warm.
Place pieces of either egg cartons, the middle part of a toilet paper, or paper towel rolls on the bottom so they don't touch white part that slides up and down.
You'll be able to pull them out and shake your crickets off of it into your pet's enclosure.
You can also put your Bug Burger, etc. on a shallow dish for the crickets to eat.
The fresh air will keep them alive for a very long time!
When you're ready to clean it, the white part slides up and down. Slide it all the way up so you can turn it upside down and shake out all the contents then clean in soapy hot water.
Rinse thoroughly and let air dry before adding more crickets.
