Cricket Farm Materials List

  • 2-3 Very large clear plastic tote containers with lids. The crickets will start to eat each other if you don’t. Would you want to live with a hundred of your mother in laws? Yeah, that’s what I thought!


  • Metal mosquito screen


  • Utility knife and a hot glue gun


  • Vermiculite or egg cartons. Vermiculite helps trap the moisture and keeps bacteria from growing. It also keeps the smell down. Smelly little buggers! I would also recommend replacing it every couple months or so.


  • Pesticide free top soil


  • Very shallow bowl for water. A lizard water bowl would work.


  • Space heater or a lizard light from pet store.


  • 40-50 crickets.

Cricket Farm let’s go!

Start off by cutting two 6-8″ circular holes in the lids of your containers.

Cut the mosquito screen to its a little bigger then the holes and use the hot glue gun to mount them on the inside of the lid.

Pour about 2-3 inches of the vermiculite in the bottom of the container. Then layer about another 2-3 inches of the top soil.

Place your crickets in their brand new cricket farm. Either put a lizard light on top or you can put them in a closet with the space heater to start the breeding process. The temperature should be roughly around 75-90 degrees. The crickets will start to get their groove on when you hear the males chirp.

In about 2 weeks the female crickets will lay eggs in the top soil. Once the eggs have been laid, scoop the top soil and place in a second container. Make sure you keep the topsoil somewhat damp now. If it dries out, your cricket farm dreams are gone. Continue to keep the temperature the same on this container. Two more weeks, you should have crickets. Rinse and repeat.

Now that you know how to start a cricket farm, I can sleep a littler better at night. Please let me know in the comments if you have raised a cricket farm before or you think it is just plain disgusting. See you next time!
