I went to the place where I get my crikets as usual. Only this time they were out of them. If this was a petshop it would seem normal, right. However, this is a cricket producer. I asked myself, how could this happen. Well I asked them and they reluctantly told me that almost their entire breeding colony was wipe out. They said that it looks like the virus go them. Now if this was the same species of cricket that was decimated by the virus then it wouldn't concern me, but it's not. It's the big crickets imported from Europe. I hope it's just an anomaly and not the begining of another species infected by the virus.
