What are butterworms? Butterworms are also known as Tebo worms, the larval stage of the Chilean moth (Chilecomadia moorei). Butterworms are commonly used as fish bait, but they also make great treats for pets!
Our Large Butterworms measure 3/4" to 1 1/2" long, making them perfect treats for medium-sized reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates like bearded dragons, chameleons, white’s tree frogs, and tarantulas.
Due to their naturally high-fat content, butterworms should only be given as treats, never as a staple feeder. If you’re looking for a staple feeder, we recommend dubia roaches and NutriGrubs instead. Butterworms should always be dusted with calcium powder prior to feeding.
To store your butterworms, keep them in the door of your fridge (approx. 42-45°F). At these temperatures the worm enters a state of hibernation and won’t require any food or water for up to 3 months.
Counts and sizes are approximate. We sell by weight, so actual sizes will vary from week to week.
IMPORTANT: BUTTERWORM ORDERS MAY BE DELAYED DUE TO LOW INVENTORY AND HIGH DEMAND. WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO SHIP YOUR ORDER WITHIN ONE BUSINESS DAY AS WE NORMALLY DO, BUT BE PREPARED FOR A DELAY UP TO A FEW DAYS ON BUTTERWORM ORDERS.
