I'm not entirely sure how I manage to keep all of the animals alive.... But give me a batch of crickets and they're dead in 2 days. I give them everything that is recommended.
Also, how am I more scared of the crickets than the reptiles I am trying to feed them to?
Yesterday one of the crickets got loose. I didn't want to touch it, but couldn't manage to catch it in a container. It crawled down into one of the vents in the floor. He's been there chirping all day and night. He's crawled to the vent under my bathroom. I tried jacking up the temperature in the hopes that it would blow him away. It just shut him up for awhile. He's still there. Chirping.

them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
