If your pet is favoring superworms over other bugs, try not offering any 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.
