View Full Version : Help with crickets!

Let's just say I've been having a bit of a bug problem and I've been having people come and spray the baseboards of my house.

My question is, how do I keep my bearded dragon's crickets safe from these pesticides?

Are getting your cricket outside of your house?
If yes...well it's a bad idea, because you don't know where the cricket are coming from. Even if pesticide are illegal, some people are still using it illegally.

If you are taking cricket in your yard or any other insect, I would recommand you to stop doing it to reduce to possibility of killing your beardie.

The solution would be :
-Buying cricket in a petshop
-Breeding your own cricket.

Good luck!

I think he has purchased crickets for his beardie and is keeping them in a cricket enclosure. Now the bug man is coming to spray and Box Turtle wants to keep the crickets safe from the spray. Is that right?

I would get the crickets out of the house the day of the spray and keep them away from any place the guy is spraying. I would also cover your beardie's cage and/or seal the ventilation slits.

I didn't know you had your beardie! Congrats!!

P.S box turtle (write : 0.0.1 Bearded dragon in your introduction so we can see that you have a new little buddy ;-))

But thanks so much for your help, I appreciate it!
