Not had it happen yet,but was wondering if anyone has had live food escape in the house?
If so what was it and did you catch it?
Not sure if this is the right place to post this so moderators please move if not.

The occasional cricket or roach get out but if we don't grab them one of our cats usually catches them pretty quickly.

I had an Adult Dubia Male crawl out of my coat pocket yesterday morning while at work. Haha.. And we keep finding Turkistan Roaches in the bathroom :/
I now have about 8 Livefood traps dotted around the house

haha this made me laugh....when I first bought a bulk bag of crickets I didn't realise how big the egg cartons inside the bag were....tried to trip them all in to a container that was waaaay too small and yes....i had nearly 1000 bugs running around the front room! got my dragons out to eat as many has they could....the cat was helping to catch them (although she would catch them, chew them a little bit them spit them out!--not too helpful!) it was like a living brown carpet!

needless to say we were finding crickets for days after :D they even found their way into the shower in the en suite!
