How often can waxworms be offered?
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.
Some wax worms black and dead
Maybe 2 dozen black in the one container the other container just fine. But I would buy from you again. Guess that’s expected.
I was a little nervous purchasing these online and getting them shipped, but they arrived relatively quick and most if not all of the way worms were alive and well! Super excited to give these as a treat for my chameleon, thank you and I highly recommend!!!!
nice & plump

The wax worms are so adorable all came alive . I highly recommend all the bugs. They also have great response time for any questions
These people are great. They are fast and very few dead worms. Two at the most. Price is right and my bearded dragon can never get enough. When it's feeding time she goes nuts. Thanks for this great service that you provide. I'm here for life.
Fast shipping. Great communication with customer support. All waxworms were alive
