    Hello. I just ran out of cricket water gels yesterday is there any other way I can give them water that won't drown them ???

    You can use a sponge in a dish.

    You can also get the crystals from a floral supply place, just make sure they don't contain any chemicals. It's the same stuff.

    That would probably work, it will just dry out really fast.

    Not only will the paper towel dry up quick it will grow bacteria and mold. And the crystals are available at most garden supply stores. Its a soil amendment for potting soil.
    One of the brand names is Agro Soak

    A carrot or something rinsed with water to make it extra hydrated would be fine, just replace it often.

    You an also use cotton balls. I've used them in a pinch. They don't dry out as fast but I changed mine out daily.
