Haha...that anxiety is incredibly well founded, actually. I have a tree frog and a toad who eat crickets as their staple. Where I live, we don't have those little tan crickets that get sold as feeders - we have those nasty cave crickets and the black field crickets. Usually I just buy those little cricket keeper cardboard boxes that contain 25-30 crickets, open the little door on it, and put it in the terrarium. The tank has a heavy, tight-fitting lid. Yet somehow, crickets escape. The ones that I feed to my killifish (and now Jack Dempsey) *must* be escapees from the terrarium. I have no clue how they get out.
