What Do Crickets Eat??

Almost all of our cold blooded animals in Awesome Science (four lizards, two toads and our one tarantula) like to eat crickets.  So, it’s fun to think about what kind of consumer/eater a cricket is.  Think about your food chain after your meals this weekend. Bon appetite!!

Think about crickets and then predict if they are herbivores, carnivores or omnivores.  After predicting, read below for your answer!!

Crickets eat just about anything — they’re omnivorous. You’ll find them in your garden eating rotten tomatoes and other debris. They’ll even eat other insects, including each other. They can also get into your house and eat paper, clothes, or anything else they feel like eating. Sometimes they’ll chew on something that’s wet, just to get moisture. And once they’re in your house, they’ll wake you up in the middle of the night with their chirping songs.
