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.
