Temperature's Effect on a Cricket's Appetite

Our project is about how temperature affects how much food crickets consume. We chose this project because we both had a prior interest in crickets and we wanted to see how they could be affected by climate change. We found that temperature does not have an effect on the amount of food a cricket eats. As the Earth's temperatures increase we wanted to see how insects, crickets specifically, would be affected.
