11lbs Chubby Dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae
Chubby Dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae are comparable to dried mealworms but have a much higher nutritional value. They have 23 to 61 times more calcium than other commonly fed feeder insects and naturally feature a well balanced calcium-phosphorus ratio. Research has shown that natural feed with balanced Ca:P ratios increases animal health and contributes to stronger bones and shiny feathers
Calcium is especially important for laying birds such as chickens. Lack of calcium can result in poor laying, soft shells and can cause behaviour problems such as egg eating as the chicken tries to recoup the much-needed calcium. Feeding the Black Soldier Fly Larvae as a treat is an excellent way to increase these vital nutrients and we can assure you, they will soon become a favourite!
Despite carrying a somewhat aggressive sounding name, the Black Soldier Fly is harmless and cannot bite. During its larva phase, which lasts a few weeks, it feeds off various kinds of organic material, converting this to proteins. The adult fly is able to entirely live off the nutritional reserves it had built up as a larva. This is why Dried Black Soldier Fly have such a high nutritional value. Our Dried Black Soldier Fly are 100% natural and farmed under GMP (good manufacturing practice) conditions.
A whole variety of animals love the natural goodness in all our 'Chubby' products including wild birds, reptiles, fish, hedgehogs, budgies, sugar gliders and many more. Although you can buy live calci worms, dried Black Soldier Fly is just as good with the added benefit of easy and long-lasting storage. Dried Black Soldier Fly are also a lot better for anyone that is squeamish!

We feed the soldier fly larva to our serama(small exotic) chickens. When we feed the chickens larva we get eggs. Before that we didn't get any eggs.
The chickens love it.
These went over really well with all the backyard birds and their young this year. Added some to my peanut butter, seed cakes too. Now I just need to find a feeder with holes large enough! The larvae were huge!!
I've ordered several times, order has arrived promptly each time. Our Koi love the silkworm and calcium enriched mealworms
