After they molt.

Could you get pictures? Then we can see what they are.

I have had on several ocassions pinheads showing up in scorp tanks, infact my male B. Gigas has a few right now. I see it as a bonus gift....if you can raise them big enough to be worth anything.....freshly hatched mantids are always ready for some newbie crickets Very Happy

Yes.

If they are really bothering you, or if the scorp seems to be getting stressed out, a substrate change should get rid of them.

I have often been plagued with new born (pin head) crickets when using adult females as feeders. In case you don't know, the female crickets have a long tube comming out of their rear-end. They stick this is the substrate to lay eggs and then the eggs hatch.

I'm new at this but the way I see it if you are using an adult female as a feeder you need to make sure that she is eaten right away. If you leave her in the cage you might get babies. I usually feed the adult females to my critters that eat right away and save the adult males for critters who like to eat without me around.

I have not had this problem with baby crickets. I don't sort them by male vs female if I need to leave them in the cage. However, I'm not sure at what point the females become sexually mature and can lay eggs. Maybe someone can chime in about this???

Also, a thought I've had (but have not tried) would be to cut the egg tube off the adult female crickets to prevent them from laying eggs in the cage. Anyone try this?
