Waxworms (Galleria mellonella) are the larval stage of wax moths and are small in size (approximately 0.75” in length) with a white/yellow-coloured body and very soft skin. They are an excellent feeder that should be considered mostly as being a treat for your pet and should be fed sparingly. Waxworms are very high in fat contents and provide a rich source of moisture that is perfect for various pets, such as reptiles, amphibians, arachnids, and birds! Their high-fat contents make waxworms an ideal food source for animals that require to gain weight quickly, such as sick animals or females that have recently laid eggs or given birth. Their fattening characteristics, easy maintenance and wide availability at discounted quantities make them an excellent feeder for occasional meals!
Our waxworms are fed with fresh and healthy nourishments and kept in ideal living conditions to ensure that they arrive to your animal in good health! To maintain your waxworms and maximize their longevity before undergoing transition to their moth stage, it is best to keep them refrigerated. By doing so, the waxworms will not only survive for much longer, but will also do so without requiring any further kind of maintenance, such as feeding.
