Black soldier fly larvae are some of the most beneficial, and protein-rich snacks you can offer any of your beloved pets. Whether using them for a snack, or relying on them as a main cuisine, they will remain a staple in your pets' diet. And that's why we have black soldier fly larvae for sale, so that you can maintain your pet's happiness and health.
How To Care for Black Soldier Fly Larvae
The care and maintenance is rather simple. First, after you receive them in the mail, allow them to sit at room temperature. You do not need to feed or water them. The larvae stage is part of the metamorphosis life cycle, And the larvae stage can remain dormant, so that they do not morph into the next stage. The benefit of this is that you can save them for your pet.
However, if you plan on using them after 2 weeks, then it is recommended to store them in 50 degree F temperatures. Temperatures that low will retard the cycle, preventing them from morphing into their next stage.
But as long as you keep them in their container, and at room temperature, and use them within 2 weeks, you won't need to worry about them morphing into the fly.
It is recommended that you rinse off your soldier fly larvae prior to feeding them to your pet.
Black Soldier Fly Larvae are also referred to as phoenix worms, reptworms, or calciworms. They offer an excellent amount of calcium for your beloved pets. But they're also renowned in the compost worms, as they serve as excellent composters.
