Corralling crickets can be quite crazy at times. The mealworms are much, much easier to catch, that’s for sure. After a couple cricket harvests, it seemed like there must be a better way to collect them. So I cut open a water jug to use the inverted top as a funnel and taped it into a storage bin to create a hopper for all those hoppers. This allows me to take the egg crates where the crickets hide and gently tap the cardboard crate on the sides of the bin and the crickets fall inside. After giving it a go, it works beautifully. The crickets gently fall into the tub where they can be weighed and then sent to the freezer.
