Product Details

 


Wax worms (Galleria mellonella) are the larvae of the Greater Wax Moth, which flies between June and October. Wax worms 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.

HOW TO STORE: 

Wax worms should be stored in the well-ventilated container they arrive in. If there is any condensation build up on the inside of the container which has happened during shipping, please wipe this condensation away as this can reduce the life of the wax worms.

Wax worms are best stored (in low humidity) at temperatures between 55°F and 65°F. Please do not freeze them. When wax worms are cold they can appear lifeless. Warm them up gradually and they will regain their normal texture and vitality. If the wax worms are kept in conditions that are too warm, they will pupate and turn into moths. In addition, please avoid direct contact with sunlight.

Although great care is taken when the wax worms are packed, it is inevitable that some may die  during the packing and shipping process. If  there are any black waxworms in the tub on arrival, please remove them from the container and discard. This will reduce the chances of the other  live wax worms being affected.

Each standard tub contains approximately 50 wax worms; a large tub contains approximately 250 waxworms

PLEASE NOTE: All live foods are sent by First Class Royal Mail. They may therefore take 3-5 working days and will arrive separately from the rest of your order. Orders received before 10.00am on Monday-Thursday will be dispatched on the same day. Orders received on a Friday-Sunday will be dispatched on the following Monday.
