Has anyone ever gotten bit by a cricket before? It hurts more than you'd expect it. Anyone else?

no, but i've heard about bites. I would guess they do have strong mandibles since they have to eat strong, tough plants.

the ants in my house are no joke. Just got my C. marg back the bicolor morph. Fed it. 10 minutes later ants are trying to eat the dead roach that the scorpion is eating so I change it from enclosures go to lunch come back and the ants LITERALLY tore him apart. I'm back to having 1 scorp in my collection.

try putting olive oil on the oudside of all your enclosures, they cant climb it and they die if they get on it when its wet (in my experience) Very Happy

See all ive ever know about our ants *not a great deal* is that I only ever seen them near food items left out.
Ive never seen ants just run, attack and kill something...

These ants find ways into the enclosure I've tried glue traps olive oil and anything else you can think of. The only this that has worked is to actually feed the ants. but they seem to prefer crickets and scorpions to hot dogs now.
