Waxworms have been a staple feeder item for decades and are an excellent food item to offer your reptiles. Waxworms are great for lizards and amphibians that are expending a lot of energy for growth, activity, or reproduction. They provide another option that allows you to offer a variety of foods to more closely resemble a natural wild diet that would consist of many different types of invertebrates. Since waxworms are higher in fat than other types of feeders, you should not feed these exclusively, instead offer them as a way to provide high energy to active animals or as a weight gain feeder if you find yourself needing to fatten up a thin animal. As a maintenance food, you can offer a few every week for variety and a well rounded diet. Like most other common feeder items, you should dust with a calcium powder each feeding, and with a multivitamin every 3rd feeding.
Our to-go boxes were created so you can give your animal a varied diet. Mix and match any way you want and save on shipping in the process! You can find the rest of our to-go box insects here!
Please note: We do not guarantee Live Arrival or issue refunds or reships for insects that cannot ship due to weather. We ship when temperatures do not fall below or exceed 32 F and 80 F on both ends at any time that the insects may be in transit. We can arrange for pickup at FedEx Ship Centers if temperatures are slightly outside of this range. If you need help locating a FedEx Ship Center near you that holds live animals please contact us.
