Our black soldier fly larvae are a highly nutritional and calcium rich food staple for your pet. Live BSFL (Hermetia illuciens) contain >3000 ppm calcium, >50% protein (dry weight) and a Calcium to Phosphorus (Ca:P) 1.25:1 ratio which is near ideal for insectivores. BSFL also contain all the essential nutrients your insectivore needs.
Obie’s Worms don’t chirp, and don’t require dusting or gut loading. Just feed them directly to your pet when they arrive.
Obie’s Large BSFL are 15-25 mm in length and weigh approx. 175 mg, and are ideal for beardies, frilled and water dragons, skinks, large chameleons, any larger lizard species and adult hedgehogs. Obie’s Worms are locally grown in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We don’t import expensive feedstock for our insects, we use organic food waste from sources like breweries, to feed and grow Black Soldier Fly Larvae. The result is a protein that isn’t just sustainable, it’s also a nutritious staple for our insectivore pets and yours.
