Large Feeding-Grade Black Soldier Fly Larvae

Delightfully disgusting

Arrived in perfect condition. I got these to eat my compost and maybe feed some to my chickens. They got right to work and have at least tripled in size since I received them. The chickens love them. Fingers crossed when they become adults, I’ll get more larvae!

Small Dubia Roaches

Perfect for Beardie

My Bubba loved his dubia. They were all alive and well sized for him.

Great feeders and great customer service!

I’ve been feeding these to my bearded dragon for over a year. They come regularly and the one time they arrived less than perfect, I messaged customer service and they sent me a new batch right away.

Approved by my duprasi

My fat-tailed gerbil is quite picky with his insects. These were devoured on the spot.

Meh

Really stinky. Won’t be buying again. It’s not the sellers fault. They just stinky bugs.

Amazing!!!!!!!!!

I bought almost every bug in the can so I have nutritious back up if I run out of bugs! Not only that, my bearded dragons got to try scorpions for the first time and LOVED THEM!! Thank you for being a reliable and awesome company!!!!

Sift & Scoop Combo
Ray (Dallas, US)
Great tool for larvae

Scoop and sifter are a great option to help you feed your animals just the larvae. It’s a simple set of tools that allows substrate to be separated from the larvae.

So far so good

Seeing how they go, came cool and not hatched overnight as promised. We are at about 1 week and so far I have success. Will update if need be.

My beardie loves them!!

I just became a beardie parent and it's a lot of trying different feeders to see what they like and this is their favorite by far!! Definitely will be getting more.

Sizes where very much off

The sizes in the large that I bought and I bought 2000 where filled with a lot of smalls and mediums. Unlike the large I’ve ordered before causing my order not last as long as when I had bought just 1200. the reason I know there was a bunch of smalls is when I was sifting they would just fall through and I was able to fill one of my older cups with the smalls and give them substrate and now I have smalls for hatchling that I didn’t order but hey it’s the silver lining.

Bugs weren’t normal quality

I’m still giving 5 stars because bugs are usually always on time and most are healthy. Last order most of them are already black and few are still alive. Waiting on the next batch hopefully they last a little longer.

bugs great, shipping not so much

Sadly, the containers of bugs arrived completely smashed and in a large baggie. Just FYI.

Great product and service.

Good quality bsfl and dubia, my Beardie, Bubba, loves them. Customer service was also great. There was an issue during shipping and they responded and sent out a new shipment immediately.

Canned Superworms

Perfect for emergency bags

These were fresher than I thought they'd be. All 3 of my dragons loved them. Being canned is a perfect convenience for a reptile's emergency bag.

Large Feeding-Grade Black Soldier Fly Larvae

Possibly disliked by anoles

Hi, great product. I have found that my Allison's anoles don't like the larvae themselves, so what I do is remove the sand from the larvae container and put a few pieces of frozen stew meat in there and leave the container outside in the Florida heat and humidity. The larvae quickly decompose the meat. Then I put the container outside in my anoles' screen enclosures with the doors open and flies will swarm in to lay eggs and the anoles will snatch the flies out of the air and eat them. Eventually, the larvae turn into flies themselves and also eventually get eaten. So, good for more creative projects like this, not good as direct feeders for my anoles.
