*Now packed in our new and improved proprietary substrate. Buy one of our sifters to separate the grubs from the GrubSoil™ easily.
Our Small CalciGrubs™ (Black Soldier Fly Larvae) are less than half the size of our Medium CalciGrubs. They are a great staple food item for many small species of reptiles, hatchling reptiles, amphibians, inverts, fish, birds, etc. They require no dusting with calcium powder as they contain all the calcium your pet needs, and can be stored at room temperature or in a fridge for a longer shelf life. If you choose to store them in a refrigerator, make sure they are in the door (warmest spot) or better yet a wine cooler.
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!
Great food for:
- Bearded Dragons
NOTE: Our black soldier fly larvae are fed an extremely high-quality, plant-based diet to deliver optimal nutrition for your pet. However, this does mean that they tend to grow and pupate faster than black soldier fly larvae from other breeders. For best results with our black soldier fly larvae, make sure to keep them cool (50-55°F) and only buy one month's supply at a time.
