*Research findings:

  • Evaluation of nutrient composition of common invertebrate feeders fed different supplemental diets. Latney, L.V., Toddes, B.D., Wyre, N.R., Brown, D.C., Briscoe, J.A., 2009. Proc. Nutrition Advisory Group. Tulsa, OK, pp 22 -23.
    • Overview - Mealworms and superworms were fed a variety of diets for 48-244 hours, then proximate and mineral composition was measured. Calcium uptake by the insects was highest for these fed Mazuri ® High Calcium Cricket Diet, providing a more ideal calcium:phosphorus balance.

  • Feed to crickets or other feeder insects free-choice for 24-72 hours. No supplementation is needed.
  • When this diet is consumed, the total body calcium of the crickets and feeder insects is increased. The presence of this diet in the gut of the feeder insects results in a higher level of calcium being delivered to reptiles and other animals that eat them.
  • Fresh water should be available to crickets at all times.
