Cockroach Breeding Training 

Lesson 8- Should I Breed Crickets or Cockroaches?

Choosing Crickets or Cockroaches?

Did you know that most of the components (containers, food/water dispensers etc) used to breed cockroaches can be used to breed Crickets. Crickets were difficult to breed in the past, but with new innovative methods they are just as easy to produce as cockroaches.

Producing both live foods will provide your animals or customers with better options. Both crickets and cockroaches have advantages and disadvantages as outlined in our Choosing Crickets or Cockroaches? page.

Breeding Crickets

Cricket breeding Training-book cover

Have you ever wondered why 95% of people succeed to breed crickets for the first couple of months, then  nearly all of them have given up after just 6-12 months using conventional techniques.?? The answer is simple….breeding crickets is easy, the hard bit is continuing with a laborious maintenance schedule (daily spraying, moving crickets between containers, cleaning, feeding etc.). To complete the failure cycle, most colonies then collapse from disease and pests due to lack of maintenance…aaaahhh!!  Our methods are the only technique on the market which offers an alternative to clumsy techniques that have a proven record of failure.

Our system are very different with automated systems that need no active management. Now crickets can be kept with the same amount of effort as cockroaches. Introducing the most  advanced, low maintenance and productive cricket and cockroach breeding systems in the world.
