Our KK got tipped over today, and while the lid stayed on, the hatch opened wide. There were probably about 75 escapees, and about 20 recovered, which was not good enough for the GF, and if it wasn't for it being able to cause a problem with the landlord, I'd let it be and catch them as I find em, but instead I've got to set up bug traps to get them gone Sad

let your place get dry and set out "water traps." Something they can climb into and then drown.

That's exactly what I did :p water traps in quite a few places. I didn't want to bother with the real glue traps, because crickets are probably the worst animal I've seen when it comes to drowning. In fact I'm fairly sure I don't actually need to put any water down, they'll find a way to drown themselves somehow.

I would be sooo grossed out if a load of crickets escaped. GROSS

Hope you manage to find them all

Our cat didn't need training -- he attacks and eats any and all escaped feeders (so he'd probably go after the scorps and Ts too No).

Let us know how the water traps go.

He hasn't attacked them yet -- but he probably would if one got out.

a few of my crickets have escaped in the past and I would always hear bitching about baby crickets being found in the house.

Kiki once got the giant day gecko when she escaped from the tank.
Poor thing had a gash!
Survived and healed.

Well, no crickets in the water traps as of yet. I've rounded up a few more live ones, and stepped on one in the bathroom this morning, so I know at least one has died already!

I would just kill them. Spray some roach poison or something no use keeping them alive anymore.
