Why were you collecting crickets to begin with ?

if you buy them from a pet store, they usually put them in a paper bag, or a flimsy box. this why you should get a cricket keeper if your using them to feed your lizard or something.

I've done this before and it sucks! We have a bearded dragon, and depending on where we get crickets the boxes are sometimes TERRIBLE. We have a plastic (fully ventilated) cricket keeper, but being a new beardie owner I left the crickets alone for a minute while unpacking my truck. Bad, bad, idea...

If you find any, put them into a jar or plastic container to keep them from getting out. This is of course only temporary and you should release them soon.

Your comment presented the grisly mental picture of their tiny insectile limbs getting torn out, as you attempt to remove them from the glueboard. I know that's probably killed your appetite, and I'm sorry about that, but does that happen, in reality?

Probably not an image you wanted, but I'm a beardie owner, and yes, cricket's legs are very easily torn. Though I personaly doubt crickets can/would rip off their own legs to escape a glue board.

I doubt they'd tear off their own legs... I also hope that no reptile owner would tear them off the glue trap and feed them to their pet... glue would probably be left of the insect... plus... chasing the crickets is half the reptiles fun

Standard crickets are fine, but if it's those creepy as fuck black ones, I'm with #5. (Also having lost repitle food in the house before and being a light sleeper, I have definitely reached the "blowtorch" point of rage with the lost crickets in my room on weeknights)

you should never feed black crickets to reptiles, they have much less meat and a much harder exoskeleton then Brown crickets. they aren't as healthy for them and can easily lead to impactation in animals which is fatal if not treated

They probably planned to, the petstores give you boxes a fair chunk of the time but they are terrible cricket keepers. My guess (based on my own actions) is that OP trusted the pet store box a little more than they should've, especially since tape doesn't work well with ALL kinds of cardboard.

#8, That's exactly what happened to me when I had turtles years ago. I hid the box and went to have a shower. My very young sister at the time crawled in to look at the turtles, but heard the crickets and found/opened them up. It was so gross and I got in loads of trouble at the time from my mother!
