"Can O' Worms" problem?!

First off, I do get "Can O' Crickets" since live crickets smell worse, and they live forever under your fridge if they get away! Wanted to try the mealies version... Went to use it today (two days ago it was used) and wondered why it was covered with a cotton sponge....

IT WAS NOT A SPONGE it was a thick layer of cobweb like hold. And for me, I dislike mold - won't even eat things the day of it's expire date, or even scrape off mold on cheese x.X So now I have the heeby jeebies and don't even want to open the crickets one because I don't know if it is the same! Doesn't say to refrigerate or anything...

What can I do to avoid this from happening?

The can of crickets are fine x.x Found the VERY small print of "keep refridgerated".... Though in our house it is often then not cold enough to keep just about anything out

Gross...it was for this reason I use to breed my own bugs for feeding, mealworms were easy as hell to breed for, just get the adult bettles and put them in bins and get going. Crickets were a lot harder but with enough food and sponges filled with water for drinking I had a happy cricket colony working. Of course after my salamanders passed away I was then left with more bugs than I could care for and sold them off to friends who had gecko's and bearded dragons. They solved my population problems fast xD

Also much more cost effective, bins for mealworms and critter keepers for crickets.
