Waxworms add tasty variety and nutritional diversity to your pet’s diet, whether you have a reptile, amphibian, tropical fish or bird! Feeding live Waxworms to your pet provides excitement and interest at mealtime, making every bite a fun treat. They provide complete nutrition that is both natural and healthy for your pet.
Feeding time will never be the same once you introduce live Waxworms to your reptile or amphibian. The movement and fresh flavor gives them that special quality that freeze-dried and packaged foods cannot provide: a moving meal! All the action is sure to prevent boredom and renew interest in your pet’s food.
Vita-Bugs Live Waxworms are naturally healthy for your pet. They feature high protein and low fat content, ideal for the diets of most reptiles and amphibians. As the larva of darkling beetles, waxworms are arthropods and possess a somewhat crunchy outer shell that appeals to many lizards and frogs.
Vita-Bugs Live Waxworms are sure to keep pets on their toes, stimulating energy as well as appetites. They make an excellent, healthy snack and can also be used as a main course. Be sure to include waxworms in your pet’s food, alternating with any other live foods or prepared diets.
Petco.com offers live waxworms in bulk quantities. They range in size from mini worms to extra large worms. Be sure to care for the waxworms that are not being fed right away; taking proper care will help you keep worms healthy and tasty for your reptiles.
Your Waxworms are shipped in a box containing egg crate. The worms should be transferred to a shoebox sized plastic container. Drill a liberal number of holes in the lid of the container, and fill it with about 1” of mealworm bedding. Add your worms, and then layer another 1” of bedding over the top. Waxworms can be kept in the refrigerator for up to two weeks with very little maintenance. After two weeks, remove your worms from the refrigerator and add a small amount of gelled water, or a few slices of potato to the top of the bedding. Allow the waxworms to stay at room temperature for about 24 hours; this allows them to become active enough to eat and drink (the bedding is their food source). After 24 hours, remove the gelled water or potato and place the worms back into the refrigerator. Repeat this process on a two-week schedule to keep your worms healthy and tasty!
