Waxworms are the juvenile stage of the Greater Wax Moth (Galleria mellonella). These soft-bodied grubs make great treats for reptiles, amphibians, and birds alike!

How often can waxworms be offered?

Waxworms are naturally high in fat, so they should only be offered as rare treats, never as a regular feeder. If you’re looking for a staple feeder, we recommend dubia roaches and NutriGrubs instead.

Always dust waxworms lightly with calcium powder before offering, as they have a high phosphorus content.

How to care for waxworms:

Waxworms last up to two weeks at room temperature. However, to make them last up to 4 weeks, you can keep them cooler between 50-60 degrees. The best way to do this is with a wine cooler and low humidity.  Do not cool waxworms past 50°F.

Remove any blackened dead worms and cocoons daily. If the bedding feels moist when they arrive, take the lid off for a while to let them dry out.

Not satisfied with last shipment.

My last shipment had more than half of my DubiaRoaches dead. Out of 100 I might had 30 live ones.

Beardies lack interest

They all came alive, my baddies just aren't fond of them I guess. They never seem to want them.
