Do black soldier fly larvae need to be dusted with calcium?
Black soldier fly larvae require no dusting with calcium powder because they already contain all the calcium your pet needs.
How to care for your black soldier fly larvae:
Our black soldier fly larvae are fed a high-quality, plant-based diet to make them as nutritious as possible for your pet. However, this does mean that they tend to grow and pupate faster than the ones from other breeders. For best results, make sure to keep your black soldier fly larvae cool (50-55°F). When chilled properly, black soldier fly larvae last approximately 1 month.
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!
