Flukers BSFL

Postby PathfinderMom91 » Wed Jan 08, 2020 5:38 pm

Hello!
Does anyone have experience with purchasing Flukers BSFL online? I’m planning on buying 500 of them to feed my baby beardie that is about 3-4 months old. Would that be enough to last atleast a couple weeks or should I go for a larger amount? How many should I feed him a day and how can I care for the BSFL properly?

Thank you!

I haven't tried it yet. The amount you have to feed a day doesn't really matter. You can limit the amount if your in a tight spot. Don't dust or gut load BSFL as they are rich in calcium and they don't need gut loading. They can last for about a month in the container you received them from.

I was planning on using them as a staple feeder. Will it just depend on how much he eats in one sitting? Should I be feeding him 2 or 3 times a day?

Yes, try to feed it 3 times a day if yout feeding BSFL. There isn't a limit on how much he has to eat in a sitting. You can adjust the amount of BSFL for your bearded dragon

You're may good for a couple of weeks with 500, or you may want to go for 1000. I use symtonbsf.com, so I can't answer about Flukers, but in any case, their care is SO easy! Keep them in a cool, dry, place (mine are often in my dishes cabinet), and you don't need to feed them (almost better not to, as they're composting bugs - feeding them could create a smell you don't want). I have portable electric beverage coolers, which lets me keep them longer, but that's not required, either. At most, you may need to sprinkle a few drops of water in the container, and/or remove any dead ones, if there are any. :0)
Never knew I could get so happy about poop, or so comfortable with bugs. :-D

That’s great to hear, it seems a lot easier to handle than any other feeder. I was going to store mine in a 5 gallon tank in my laundry room.
I went with flukers because they were cheaper. Lol

Have had positive experiences with Flukers. My 1st order the post office messed up. Sent my order to the wrong place, some weird mistake that made no sense and Fluker's sent me a new order without me asking. Follow up orders have not had a problem. Most I have ordered is 250 large, they do keep a month, some will probably turn flies but most stay as larvae in the fridge in their container Flukers shipped them in
Devlyn my beautiful bearded dragon, approx hatch 8/18, mine since 2/19. Kitty Greysie born 3/06. Lttle rescue Charlie the American grey tree frog, found 11/18. Lots of house plants, I like cacti and succulents.

That’s good! Are they very wriggly? My beardie only wants active food. Haha
