NutriGrubs (BSF Larvae) are great staple feeders for bearded dragons, geckos, chameleons, and various other animals. Unlike crickets, super worms, and mealworms, they contain the perfect amount of calcium, so there is no need to dust. The worms can be stored at room temperature or in a fridge for a longer shelf life. If you choose to store them in a refrigerator, make sure they are in the door (warmest spot) or better yet a wine cooler.
Pro tip:If you notice some of your grubs turning black, they are close to the "fly" stage. Keep them until they turn into a fly and watch your pet go after them! It's excellent enrichment for your pet, and they are a slow-moving fly, so they are easy to catch. Plus, if your pet doesn't like the grubs, it should like the flies!
