3 any time I stop breeding crickets, be it that weird disease that causes them to go kinda mushy and die, or if they just aren't breeding well.

$0.

I breed five or so species of cockroach, so I never have to buy feeders. However, I do wind up having to feed them quite a bit of healthy vegetable matter to keep them well-fed and thus ensure the health of my collection.

To breed roaches expect a one-time payment of around $20 or so, then plan to not use them for a few months. It takes a while for a breeding colony to get to a size large enough where you can routinely feed out of it without risking depleting the population to the point where it will crash.

You can also spend more to get a larger colony that's ready to start feeding off immediately.

Maybe I should look into starting a colony, I spend around $10+ a week.
At least this week thats about the price I paid.
