LIVE! Waxworms

Regular price
£6.50
..

Waxworms (Galleria mellonella) are the larvae of the Greater Wax Moth and get their name because they are most commonly found in honeycombs of beeswax. Their soft body is easily digestible and very nutritious. They are rich in protein, moisture and fat, making them an even more juicy meal than mealworms.

Each standard 40g tub contains approximately 150 waxworms.

How to store your Waxworms

Your waxworms need to be stored in a cool dark, well ventilated area - a garage or shed would be great as long as it is well ventilated. Keeping them cool will stop them from pupating. They can be stored in the tubs they come in, and you can add a little bran and honey for food and moisture if necessary.

How to feed your Waxworms to Garden Birds

Place a few waxworms in a small, shallow container on your bird table. They are packed with protein, calcium and fat as well as water which makes them a very tasty treat especially to young fledglings.
