Cricket Babies Eat Adults

The tables have turned. Awhile back, there was a post called Crickets are Full of Themselves. I described how when there is not enough protein available, the crickets will start to eat each other. And how it’s extremely important to take the breeding pods, where they lay the eggs, out of the bin before the adults eat the eggs and emerging babies. Well, it seems to work both ways. There was an adult cricket that got into one of the bins full of baby crickets and when I tried to catch him, he got a little crushed. I left the body in there as a food source and was not disappointed. The younglings are having a field day.
