Cricket breeding correct me if i am wrong?
I usually keep the the cricket container at room temperature. I use a Rubbermaid container to house the crickets. You should keep the egg cartons in there. I breed with 1000 crickets. I am not sure how many crickets you are starting with.
I fill some plastic sandwich bins with vermiculite, then I cut a piece of window screen to fit the sandwich bin. Place that screen on top of the vermiculite. Cut a large hole or square on the sandwich bin’s lid and place over the vermiculite and the screening.
What the screening does is prevent the crickets from digging out the eggs and eating them.
With a 1000 crickets I put the bin in over night, take out and put into another Rubbermaid bin on top of a heat mat. Then is stick another egg bin in the cricket bin, and etc.
Make sure you keep the egg container moist, but I would not spray directly on the egg bins.
It may take you a couple of times to get it right, but once you get it right it will be easier and you will develop your own way of breeding crickets.
