Pack each cricket with maximum reptile benefit! Much of reptile nutrition comes from the gut load of the crickets, mealworms and king mealies they eat. The problem: a captive insect's sparse diet can't match the complete nutrition of their wild counterparts. Gut Load was created to pre-fill each insect with vital carbohydrates, calcium, calories and vitamins. Simply place a supply in the insect enclosure 24 hours before feeding to a reptile. It takes only ¼ teaspoon per insect, and you'll see the benefit in a healthier, more active pet.
