About This Product

Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens) larvae are a great feeder for a wide variety of reptiles, amphibians, birds, and invertebrates. High in calcium, black soldier fly larvae are also known in the trade as Phoenix Worms, ReptiWorms, and CalciWorms. Each container of extra small black soldier fly larvae (250 count) will contain at least 250 soldier fly larvae ready to feed out as soon as they arrive. Extra small black soldier fly larvae measure approximately 1/8 inch, and make perfect feeders for animals that like small food, such as dart frogs.

How to Feed: Feed soldier fly larvae with tongs or in a dish. Be careful not to allow soldier fly larvae to escape the dish—the larvae will burrow and pupate. After they pupate, the larvae emerge as adult black soldier flies, which resemble small wasps. Even though they look intimidating, black soldier flies are harmless.

Once the worms begin to pupate (if they're not eaten), they'll turn black. At this stage, the larvae contain a LOT of calcium, and should be quickly fed to your pets.

How to Store: Soldier fly larvae can be kept at room temperature, but keeping them at 55-65°F will keep them in the larval stage much longer. Remember, black soldier fly larvae can still be fed out after they pupate. Adult flies can also be fed out—chameleons in particular seem to love these!

Most arrived alive

Some of the larvae seemed to be desiccated when the containers arrived, and the larvae are a bit hard to extract from the soil, but generally a good purchase. My bearded dragons love them!

Living and Thriving!

I was a little afraid of these! I feared my beardies wouldn't like these much, bc at the time they were in love with the gut loaded crickets! They would puff up at any other food that wasn't crickets and choose not to eat! Lol!!!! However they surprised us and went to work of these worms! Now I try to keep them so that they don't run out! I plan to order more asap!
