I dont know about you all and your geckos but mine are tired of lame old crickets, but i fed my golden geckos some big grasshoppers, does anybody know of a grasshopper supplier or a wayto breed these dumb lively insects?

I don't know about grasshoppers but if you're sick of crickets, give roaches a try. They're great feeders and easy to work with and breed. The two types of roaches most common to use for geckos are B. Dubia and Blatta Lateralis (I use both). Look around in this forum and you'll find LOTS of info on them. They're very popular.

I second the roach comment, but then again I am a biased source. Honestly though, roaches are much easier to breed and care for than crickets, and I speak from experience.

Well, along that line, don't forget about

ROACH PAGE (http://www.theroachguy.com)
Aaron Pauling.com (http://www.aaronpauling.com)

I have done business with Aaron, good guy and I highly recommend. Never worked with Justin (roach guy), but I have talked with him. Very respected in the business, and I wouldn't have any doubts about ordering from him.
