You guys weren't kidding when you said that the rats love them. crafty little buggers would eat me out of house and home if they could just figure out how to get out of the cage.

The best I've seen superworms sell for is 10c apiece, is there any cheaper alternative? Will they eat crickets? What about other kinds of worms?

They love dubai roaches too. I just have to hold them in the tongs until they pull the heads off so they don't run away.

I haven't tried them on crickets but I'm sure they would love them as well.

Actually, they are the weirdest creepiest thing I have come in contact with in years. I wish I had a video the first time I realized they could pull the head off and the body would still pulse.

What's even freekier than that is one night I was sitting at my computer and looked down on the carpet. I saw the head and three legs walking toward my chair - FROM THE NIGHT BEFORE! Does anything kill these guys? I can't imagine if they got loose and bred in the house. I figure if the bodies are separated there's only so much they will be able to accomplish.

The head and legs is kind of creepy, but at least it wasn't creeping like a cricket that you can't find.

Eww.

How come I can leave a cricket in a bin without food or water and it will live two weeks...

But if it escapes, I find it dead and all black in a few hours.
