Our Dried Calci Worms are comparable to dried mealworms but have a higher calcium value. Chubby Dried Calciworms naturally have 23 to 61 times more calcium than other commonly fed feeder insects and also have a naturally well balanced calcium-phosphorus ratio of 3-35. Research has shown that feed with higher Ca:P ratios increases animal health and contributes to stronger bones and shiny feathers.
Fact: Calci –worms are in fact black soldier fly larvae (hermetia illucens). Despite carrying a somewhat aggressive sounding name, the fly (and larva) are completely harmless.
