Small-scale breeding and harvesting of house cricket Acheta domesticus


Author(s): Soham Mukherjee and Akanksha Mukherjee

Abstract: Insectivorous animals in captivity must have access to a consistent supply of live food that is both plentiful and fresh. House crickets are a nutrient-dense source of essential amino acids, carbohydrates, fats, minerals, and water, as well as a rich source of protein. Unfortunately, because feeder crickets are not widely available commercially in India, purchasing crickets for this purpose is not yet an option. Due to the demanding maintenance needed by traditional methods, many people who try to breed crickets in a home environment fail over time. With the method described in this article, it is possible to produce large quantities of crickets affordably, consistently, and with fair ease.
