I have every confidence that someone here can figure this out…

Let’s say a cricket farmer has 1 million crickets. They are active, healthy crickets that reproduce at a rate of doubling their population every 8 weeks. These crickets have a lifespan of 12 weeks. 2/3 or 667,000 are juveniles and 1/3 or 333,000 are adults (this is the average ratio of adults to juveniles at any given time). Only the adults lay eggs. Adults are crickets that are 6 weeks old and they lay eggs until they die at 12 weeks. Juveniles under 6 weeks old do not lay eggs. Bear in mind the total population doubles every 8 weeks. How many crickets can this cricket farmer sell each week, and still maintain a 1 million cricket population?
