Anyone have bad experience with Camel Crickets with your critters?


Recommended Posts

I have had wood Camel crickets with my beetles and hissers for over 7 months so far, and everything seems to be going well. I don't see any aggression, and the Camel cricket seems to clean the backs of the hissers. They are fun to watch. I know some crickets can be aggressive or eat other bugs, but have not seen this with this breed of Camel Crickets. I found them under some logs in Minnesota. I am curious about them, because they eat mold, and hopefully mites and spilled food.

They're a little unpridictable.  My niece used to have one for several months, she was really nice and gentle.  But she turned her back on her cage mates and  even with food available, she randomly killed and ate my niece's meadow katydid!
