We apologize for the inconvenience, but our website will be shut down until Friday due to an increase in order issues and delays. We are doing our best to get orders out within 1-2 business days, but unfortunately we are now delayed by up to 3-5 days. To minimize the amount of negative reviews and experiences, we have had to make the tough decision of closing until Friday the 27th. At that time we will again be processing orders within 1-3 days until we shut down on December 14th. We sincerely apologize, and we hope to come into 2021 as strong as ever! ❤️

Waxworms are the larval stage of the Greater Wax Moth (Galleria mellonella). These soft-bodied larvae make excellent treats for reptiles, amphibians, and birds. 

Due to their naturally high-fat content, waxworms 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. Waxworms should always be lightly dusted with calcium powder prior to feeding.


Waxworms will last up to two weeks at room temperature. They can be kept cool at 50-60 degrees, where they become dormant and will last up to 4 weeks. Do not cool waxworms past 50°F.

They are ideally kept in a wine cooler and must be stored at low humidity.  If the bedding feels moist when they arrive, take the lid off for a while to let them dry out.

Remove any blackened dead worms and cocoons daily.
