Q: How do you keep crickets alive? Mine died and they stink.

A: We use a very large CLEAR plastic tub from Wal-mart. No Lid. When crickets arrive for your bearded dragon(s), open the box, flip it over and dump the whole thing into the bin, egg crate and all. The crickets will run in between the egg crate rather than up the sides of the bin to get away from the light. If you use an opague bin, crickets feel safe and run up the sides and out. If the clear bin is large enough, even with no lid there should be no escapees. If you must use a lid, use a screen. You want air to circulate. Otherwise, humidity builds up in the cricket bin causing odor and die off.
