I have been trying to feed the crickets this cricket food i found at the pet store (Fluker's Orange Cube Complete Cricket Diet) but for some reason they don't eat it at all. They avoid the food and it goes bad and a lot of them are dying because of it. Help? IMG_20200616_094611.jpg

This is actually not really "food". It's silicon gel crystals (which people use to hydrate their crickets) with orange dye. When it "goes bad" it means that the water is evaporating from the crystals. If they're not all covered with cricket poop you can soak them in water and they'll probably plump up again. Get some Flukers' gut load which looks like powdered grain and put it in the bottom of your cricket cage. They will eat that.
