Feeder variety and the importance of gut loading.

Did you know that some people just feed feeder crickets? Crickets are a great low-cost feeder, but variety is extremely important.

Think of it this way. If you ate nothing but oranges. Oranges are low cost and great tasting. But you would end up getting overloaded on the amount of Vitamin C and sugar. Also, other nutrients would be missing.

Variety can be problematic because most feeder providers have a narrow menu. Buying your bugs from multiple sources can be a pain. Especially paying shipping multiple times or paying the higher cost of local sellers.

We provide a variety of high-quality feeders that are perfect for any insectivore ratking.ch is perfect to supply you with all your feeder insect needs.
