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 are easy to store, they don’t chirp, and don’t require calcium dusting or gut loading. Just give them a quick rinse and feed them directly to your pet when they arrive, store them between 10 - 20 ºC.
Obie’s Small BSFL are 5-10 mm in length and weigh approx. 50 mg. The small size are best for hatchlings, small frogs, spiders and other small insectivore species.
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.
Small BSFL are available in the following quantities: 100, 250, 500, 1000, 5000.
