About This Product

LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEED if your temps fall within our LAG (read here). Please check your temps before ordering!

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 Black Soldier Fly Larvae - 50 count Large will contain at least 50 soldier fly larvae ready to feed out as soon as they arrive. Large Black Soldier Fly Larvae measure approximately 1/2" - 3/4", and make perfect feeders for bearded dragons, chameleons, leopard geckos, fat tail geckos, and many insectivorous invertebrates.

How to Feed:

Feed soldier fly larvae with tongs, or in a dish. Be careful not to allow solder fly larvae to escape the dish - the larvae will burrow and pupate into adult flies. 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 began to pupate (if they're not eaten by them), 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 55-65F 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!

Great product

The worms arrived alive and 2 out of 3 of my chameleons loved them. I will buy again.


Very good for feeding my chameleon. He loves them.

My chameleon terry chomped through these very quick he loves these and I recommend them.


Great Quality

There was no dead loss, and I actually got more than the 50 that I ordered. Much better quality than what I have purchased in person at pet stores.


Gobbled up

Perfect size for my growing pacman. The ones he doesn't eat that turn into flies go to my jumping spider and she greatly appreciates it! I would highly recommend adding these into your pets diet for the high amount of calcium alone. Theyre highly digestible, last a long time, and are surprisingly high in protein as well.


A hit with my toads!

They worms all arrived active and alive- and they were a hit! The large worms are a perfect size for my 3 month old baby toads.
