I just got off the phone to my friend who after looking after Lennox for a week decided to buy his own beardie "iggy" not very original i know.

Now as i wasn't to experienced when i first got Lennox (not that i am now but i feel i know more) i had little advise to offer him but went round all the time to check on things, after a couple of visits i started to notice a cricket or two wandering around near the viv, i remember saying before i left "keep the lid on the box when you feed him"

Anyway long story short he just informed me his girlfriend woke up from a nap on the settee screaming, i little brown cricket was wandering up her face....

Yum

Which is the reason mine just get locusts now and occasionally waxworms. I just can't deal with the ugly lil things and they stink.

one of the first few months i had crickets i was at work, got a phone call off my mum at around 10.30 saying she couldnt sleep through all the noise the loose crickets were making, my answer?

Dont worry mum just let lennox out he'll soon catch them,

The next thing i heard was a dial tone and a proper ear chewing the morning after :-(

Yes crickets stink and are sooo noisy. They used to drive us around the bend. Locust are cleaner and silent - bliss. We even used to buy the 'silent' crickets and they were noisy :roll:
