Locusts are better but more expensive. Trouble is that once they've started on locusts they really won't touch any other insects readily. You could try roaches, otherwise it's try to wean him off them and on to crix but that's not easy with a baby as you have to effectively withhold live food until he takes the crix - not recommended with babies due to their rate of growth.

Yeah you dont get anywhere near as many locusts as you do crickets in a tub. Tia wont touch crickets at all no matter how hard I try so I have the roach colony. She gets the odd tub of locusts as a treat
