What Temp do I Keep Crickets at?

I always have around 50 on hand and give them lettuce or apples. I live In Cali so my room is always around 80 degrees. I doubt that they need to be heated. Are they all dying? If so are their bodies dry?

I don't have a problem with a ton of them dying, I get about 100 at a time and they last like 3 weeks, when some do die, their body's are not dry at all

They only need heating if you temps drop below 62-65 degrees (they do worse with too low temps than too high). If you plan on breeding you need to stay in high 80's-low 90's area etc.
