Hi, im not sure how hard it is to breed locusts, but there not that cheap to buy and my girlfriend loves norbert so much she wants a beardie now to call her own (rest assured will be kept in a different viv)

Some people make it sound really easy, and some people make it sound really difficult, keeping various amounts of tubs and moving different age groups from tub to tub. Can it really be is simple as a few adults, a heat mat underneath, lots of food and some moist sand to lay the eggs?

Anyone on here breed locusts? Just looking to save the money buying them every week, considering i will have more than one beardie to feed soon.

Roaches are easier - never tried locusts but have tried crix and they're way too fussy.

Im going to give it a try, doesn't sound to difficult.

I have even more of a reason now because the supplier i use to collect mine from (Which is the same place that supplies most of the pet shops around here) has just had a serious fire on the premises and isn't going to be taking any orders for quite some time i would imagine.

If anyone has been successful in breeding them i would love some advice/tips.
