Our black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) are a nutrient rich protein and calcium food staple for your pet. Obie's live BSFL (Hermetia illuciens) contain >5500 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. Simply feed them directly to your pet when they arrive, and store them in a cool, dark environment.
Obie’s large BSFL are >15 mm in length and weigh between 13 and 25 mg, they are ideal for beardies, frilled and water dragons, skinks, large chameleons, any larger lizard species and adult hedgehogs.
Obie’s Worms are locally raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We don’t import expensive feedstock for our insects, we use pre-consumer organics from sources like local breweries, to feed and grow our 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.
