Obie’s Medium BSFL are 10-15 mm in length and weigh approx. 100 mg, and are ideal for newts, medium frogs and toads, adolescent lizards, small chameleons, medium geckos, axolotls and young hedgehogs.
Obie’s Worms are locally grown in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We don’t import feedstock for our insects, we use pre-consumer organics 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.
