Wax worms for sale are soft, juicy, and plump treats by bearded dragons, leopard geckos and chameleons just love (we call them the vanilla cake of feeders). Wax worms for sale are ideal food for many insectivorous animals and plants. Reptiles devour the creamy fat-bodied worms and the people that feed them love how digestible they are. When held in captivity, these worms can be fed grains, bran and honey.
Most refrigerators are too cold to store them in, but the refrigerator door is a little warmer and will usually work fine. They will keep for up to a month or two if kept at proper temperatures. Waxworms require little feeding and should NOT be refrigerated.
Fishermen use them for ice fishing, panfish, perch, bass, and catfish.
Let the waxworms pupate into moths for a treat that will make your reptiles go crazy! They love to chase them.
They’ll last one to two weeks at room temperature. Usually best to keep cool at 60 degrees, where they become dormant and will last up to 8 weeks – but must not be any colder than 55°.
Should be ideally kept in a wine cooler, butter tray in the refrigerator, or in a cellar. They must be stored in low humidity. If the bedding feels moist when they arrive, leave the lids off to let them dry out.
Daily remove any dead worms (they will be black) and remove the cocoons of any that are spinning one.
Wax worms for sale are medium-white caterpillars with black-tipped feet and small, black or brown heads. In the wild, they live as nest parasites in bee colonies and eat cocoons, pollen, and shed skins of bees and chew through beeswax. Wax worms for sale are always good to gut load live food, and wax worms will happily eat everything. But do not feed them with fruits and vegetables because the humidity kills them. Gut loading them is never essential though.
