Due to the extreme cold weather that can affect the city of Chicago, we recommend having your live insects held for pickup when your temps get below 40 degrees, the rest of the year is usually okay but if you aren't sure then this is always a good option!
Dubia roaches thrive in warmer conditions so you will want to have a low level heat source such as a heat mat for them, during the warmer parts of the year this will be unnecessary. Hornworms and soldier fly larvae are very nutritious snacks for all insectivorous reptiles they grow quickly when warm but when it's cool you will find that they grow very slowly and last longer making these a great option. Waxworms can be used as a treat option and also grow slower in cooler temperatures. Superworms and mealworms are also great options, and will benefit from the cooler weather.
