BSFL DUSTING

Postby LimKH » Mon Jan 13, 2020 3:26 am

I know that you don't have time dust BSFL with calcium. How about Multivitamins? D3? How do our dragons get enough D3? How long can BSFL last?

I don't , but I do separate them from the bedding they often are sent mixed in and place some absorbant kitchen paper towel in the BSFL tub so the worms end up very much cleaner.

I don't think dusting the BSFL is necessary .

By exposure to a good UVB source at an appropriate distance for several hours per day , or if it's allowed exposure to natural sunlight.
The Vit D3 photosynthesis biochemical process.

I don't dust my BSFL (or silkworms) with anything at all.
Now when it comes to crickets , the occasional mealworm or superworm , they get dusted with pure colloidal calcium powder and reptile vitamin powder.
