#142273 - 09/04/06 10:11 AM Ewwwww! My Crickets Are Rotten!

I just bought a "Can O Crickets" from Suncoast a couple of weeks ago. I opened them last week and fed a few. My Babies loved them....but when I opened them again last night, they were molding, rotten and stinky. Yuck! The can didn't say they needed to be refrigerated or anything. They weren't in a hot location and we have air conditioning. They were just sitting beside the cage. What did I do wrong? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />

Once they`re opened, they only last a few days. Whenever I use these things, I put them in a freezer baggie and freeze them right away after I open the can, that way they can last as long as you like. I did the same thing as you did last year when I bought them for the first time. We all learn as we go along I guess.

I made the mistake too. Good God, that was a smell that you don't forget! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

Lesson learned. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

Can O Crickets specifically says on the label to Refrigerate after Opening.

Okay, I hit 40 and I can't see small print. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" /> LOL. Thanks. I will know in the future. That'll teach me to not let the kids read it TO me. Or, suck it up and put on the glasses. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />

LOL The print is pretty tiny. The manufactuers should make something so important larger but maybe they hope to sell more that way. Grrr
