So I was wondering at what age sugar gliders can start eating mealworms and crickets and how many per day? Some people say 8 per day and others say 5 per week?

It is better to wait until joeys are old enough to safely process the chitin in insects. I don't usually offer insects until they are about 4 months. However, they often learn to steal bugs from their parents.

I give my gliders 5-10 insects every day. When they get crickets, it is 3.
