Zoophobas Morio species
1kg Superworms. Packed in a calico bag with bran, paper and carrot.
These are not to be confused with what other companies call superworms which are juvenile hormone sprayed mealworms.
Superworms grow up to 5-6cm.
OTHER AVAILABLE WORMS SIZES:
mealworms (although these are a different species)
Please do not refrigerate superworms as this will result in death.
Superworms are easy to keep in a plastic container with holes. We ship them to you with bran, which they use for bedding and food.
They are best kept at room temperature and will live for up to 2 weeks as a worm before they start to pupate. They should be fed every couple of days by adding a few small pieces of carrot which they will eat and use as a source of moisture.
The carrot is their main source of moisture so needs to be changed regularly.
Superworms should be considered a "treat food" as they are high in fat and have a hard exoskeleton that can cause issues with some animals. They are a good addition as part of a well-balanced diet.
