Um...............................................j ust get a cup and a sheet of paper. Get the cricket in the cup, then slide the paper over the top. Basic method, really. It works though.

Do they have to be crickets? I mean if your animal doesn't mind, you can put a small sheet over a light bulb attatched to a glass jar top like a funnel into it from the bulb. You can get a fair amount of bugs overnight that way.

Thumbs up Crickets...

I usually do a basic pitfall trap. Have a piece of carpet, board or similar material over a buried jar. Make sure the dirt is to the rim of the jar, then I usually put cheese in the jar as an attractant. Another method I like to use that works very well and me and some buddies found out by accident is burying a jar (or in our case, a beer bottle) and dropping a glow stick in it. Don't ask me how we found this out. Hope this helps!!

Default I remember an article in "Boys Life" back when I was a teenager..

about using crickets to fish for bluegill. The article said to take a whole loaf of bread, cut a 5-6 inch diameter hole in one end and hollow out most of the loaf. THen place the loaf outdoors where you hear a lot of crickets calling. Check inside the loaf each morning. Never tried it but lemme know how it works if you do!
