Feeders in Ontario

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Does anyone know where I can get a good variety of feeder insects in the Hamilton, Ontario area?

I've been looking around and it seems every shop is trying to price gouge. Online is cheaper, but shopping online requires huge orders and for one beardie, that really doesn't make sense.

I want to try feeding some silkworms, hornworms, and phoenix worms to see if my beardie enjoys them, then I might up the order once I understand what it is I need. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks! :)

it really is cheaper to buy 500 whatevers online for $20, than to only get around 200 in stores for that amount of money. they also last longer too, and with the big amount you could start your own colony

Starting a colony is not an option for me right now. Anyway I've decided to try recorp.ca but they're really slow in responding to order requests. I sent in a question on the 30th of Jan, they got back to me on the 5th of Feb, and I "placed" my order that same day, still no response.

Just wanted to update, I received my order on the 22nd of February. That took forever -_- luckily I still had enough food to keep my little guy happy until then.

Now I can spend some time really looking around! And starting next month I may be able to get a colony of crix going :)

The only one I've found so far is recorp.ca (which I mentioned in my earlier post). It takes a little while to get through the order process, but you can get 3-4 cups of them in one standard shipment (thus saving on shipping fees) and they're not too bad price-wise ($8.50 CAD per 100 of the medium or large, or 150 of the small/extra small).

If anyone knows of other canadian retailers dealing in PWL I'd love to hear about 'em.

We supply Phoenix Worms to Bug Order in AB, Super Cricket in SK, and Recorp in ON. These distributors sell direct to customers and some pet stores.

Super Cricket in SK charges $9.95/100 (med,lrg) but they will match the $8.50/100 (med,lrg) prices from Recorp. Just place your order then e-mail them with the info and they will credit you back the difference.

I just ordered through her. You get your order in 2 business days! There's no minimum order, she carries every bug, including phoenix worms and her prices are amazing! I average spending 8cents per bug in the stores. I've now gone down 2cents per bug making them about 6cents having them shipped to my door! :D
-She's a lovely lady who owns a BD and really loves them. I will always order through her. She does not have a web site yet but here is here e-mail thewormlady1@gmail.com
-Just let her know what bug you want and how many and she'll send you a price. Highly recommend! :D And feel free to say Holly on BD.org recommended her and says hi. :wink:

I operate The Worm Lady out of a village just south of Windsor Ontario. My husband and I raise/grow horns, silks, meal worms, super worms, and also carry Phoenix worms, wax worms, and butter worms. We also sell cooked silk and horn 'chow' to keep those feeders well fed until your critter gulps 'em down! I have a beardie myself and I do my absolute best to ensure an overcount, prompt next-day delivery whenever possible, proper and personal attention to each order, and well fed, healthy live feeders to my customers. I currently provide product to various pet/reptile stores in the area as well as on-line to people throughout Ontario and elsewhere in Canada. If you have any questions, please let me know. I can be reached at thewormlady1@gmail.com. If I don't have what you want, I'll do my best to help you find it!!! - Annie Brenner

I've just recently ordered through "The Worm Lady" and have nothing but wonderful things to say about the experience.

I'd absolutely recommend her.

I'm so glad I checked out this site, Worm Lady, you sound wonderful and if Holly likes your worms, I will too. I'll have to check to see what I need and get back to you. I have 6 dragons, 5 adults and a juvie, and would like to get them something different than supers. Thanks, Holly, for the recommendation.
