Water Crystals are perfect to keep your Dubia Roaches and other feeder insects hydrated.
Each ounce of Insect WaterGel granules will absorb 1 gallon of water, swelling over 400 times in size.
Providing a safe way to provide water to feeding insects. Helps to reduce drowning.
Directions. . .
Add dry crystal granules to approximately five cups of water and leave it to swell for about four hours, or overnight. During this time the granules absorb the water and increase their weight by about 400 times. The softer the water the more the gel swells.
Next, use a sieve to strain off the surplus water and allow the gelatinous mass to dry for at least two hours.
This helps to avoid a build-up of water in the bottom of the dish or container. Now put the gel into a container or watering dish. If you are adding nutrients, calcium, vitamins, etc. Always add these items to the water prior to adding the dry crystal granules.
After allowing time for the granules to fully absorb the water, pour off or remove any excess (not absorbed) water. Removing the non-absorbed water will help prevent drowning. To dispose of used crystals, pour crystals into flower beds or garden. WaterGel is a non-toxic substance that will not harm your plants, grass, soil, pets or insect
