I haven't used them for crickets but as far as my other bugs are considered they like it, they just don't seem to last as long for me.

I can't see why Styrofoam wouldn't work for crickets. It's certainly worth a try.

Well I was looking it up and apparently they eat the Styrofoam so I was just curious if it was ok for them to Styrofoam or if it kills them xD

xD yeah toilet paper rolls where my first choice but they I found out by using egg cartons u can "hang em up" on the sides xD right now I got TONS of cardboard boxes so me and my boyfriend are gonna do some crafts and make some cricket hides and stuff


Maybe make like a layer going up with like ramps with the middle all open  for food or something.....

So I got a 62 litre Rubbermaid top the clear ones now what I plan for doing the crickets is all around the sides have ramps half way on each of the long sides going up layers and all around a walkway maybe make "rooms" idk yet

plan on breeding them so I was thinking to put the breeding containers on the ground idk maybe 2 medium containers and have a stick or something going from one layer to the next with a dish in the middle and using that to put the crickets cubes in and some veggies

Haha! I don't see much people doing that crazy stuff with their crickets, just the usual boring setups with tubes and junk.
