    Hey everyone,

    this is a cricket trip I built to help people catch crickets to feed to their pets! You can build like 10 of these (because they're free) and set them all over your yard. Each day you will get fresh crickets for your girls!!

    How do you guys do to get fresh bugs for your girls?

    [VIDEO]



    Also check out my blog on this particular trap!!!

    I'm sure the kids would love it. If you end up testing it maybe post some photos to get people excited about it;)
