      We see it first hand; crickets are the most popular feeder insect.  But why?  We wrote this article comparing crickets to BSFL, and there’s overwelming evidence that BSFL are the superior feeder insect:

      • BSFL have an excellent calcium-to-phosphorus ratio (crickets don’t have an excellent ratio)
      • BSFL are easier to digest than older crickets due to less chitin
      • BSFL have more fat, which is great for reproducing reptiles and amphibians
      • BSFL handle cold temps better, and are far more likely to survive winter transits.

      We think crickets certainly have their benefits, but BSFL takes the cake.
