blanched medium sized crickets in piece
Our Blanched Crickets are an easy way to provide your ants with freshly preserved protein food without having to feed live insects. The included crickets (Acheta domesticus) have been gently blanched to ensure that nutritional value, flavor and aroma are preserved. In addition, the chitinous shell of the insects is softened in this way, so that it can be digested more easily. The compounds of the collagenous proteins are broken down so that the ants can utilize them better. Canned Acheta domesticus have the same nutritional value as live crickets, but are easier to digest. In contrast to frozen or dried crickets where about 60% of protein is lost, the contained protein can be processed to almost 100%.
The blanched crickets are not suitable for hunting ant species that require live food. (e.g. ponerines (primordial ants) such as Harpegnathos or Odontomachus).
