What do you feed your crickets?

Hi everyone,

I couldn't find a topic on this, question so thought I would start one. I know the commercial industry for pets feeds crickets chicken layer mash/dog food etc, but is this ok for human consumption? Has anyone had experience feeding dog/cat/chicken feed to crickets and can tell a difference in their taste? Any alternative foods or tricks to make them taste better/different?




  • Mint fed to crickets is able to come through in their taste. Some producers for human consumption shift their cricket diet a week & a half before scheduled euthanization to more fruits & vegetables; among other items in Laos/Thailand it's often squash & in the west apples.
