Methods

Describe the study organism under the subsection “Study organism”. Include the common and scientific name of the organism and a description of where they came from (i.e. purchased from local pet stores). How they were housed (include the number of crickets in the colony, the average size of crickets in colony, size of the container they were housed in, length of time they were housed in the container prior to experiments). Kellie will go over some of these details in Lab during the writing workshop.
