Superworms are high in fat and are considered more of a "treat". If your pet is favoring superworms over other bugs, try not offering any superworms for a week or two.
What are superworms?
Superworms are the larval form of Zophobas morio, a type of darkling beetle. They're like mealworms, but bigger and fatter. This makes them good for use as occasional feeders or treats for reptiles, amphibians, and some arachnids.
We offer a pre-cupped option is great for hobbyists that want a convenient alternative to "boxed" or "bagged" feeders, and pet stores or resellers wanting a professional pre-packaged solution.
How big is each superworm?
Our medium superworms are approximately 1 1/2" long each.
How often can superworms be offered?
Superworms can be safely used as part of a rotation of feeder insects or as treats. Due to their higher fat content, avoid using superworms as a staple feeder.

I love the products and feed for my beardies Sparky and HoneyNut. The worms are fresh and the delivery is always speedy.
Very Good Quality, fast shipping, great packaging
I would just like to think Dubia for the wonderful order that I received. This is my first time ever having to order live feeders I was kind of nervous because I didn’t know how this would go or if they would be alive but my order came in a timely fashion and my baby loves everything they were alive customer support has been in contact with me every time I need some thing. If you are wondering if this is the site for you I promise it is!
They all came alive! Right amount also!
Everything was just as I wanted and was what I ordered. Thanks for carrying what my son needs for his bearded dragon.
My beardie loves these!
