Are superworms good to feed my 2 month old beardie?

Postby Geoff0410 » Thu Jul 02, 2020 4:50 am

im asking this because its been a nightmare keeping crickets, they either escape or die in the quantities of 50 per 100 i purchase. Ive purchaed from a few different pet shops and its all the same thing.

Please get him over on roaches --- go here and order
http://www.dubiaroaches.com or here www.reptilesplus.com they have small superworms - super worms are ok for lures to the salad bowl he needs to be eating salads too - horn worms are a good hydrating worm you must order medium they usually come small - they grow very fast so feed on top of your salads like 2 - super worms need to be small for a 2 month old depending on how big he is you might get a way w/ feeding medium - and only use 1-3- BSFL or nutri grugs also known as phoenix worms or calci worms --- feed those on top of the salad too - use as many as you want they are a good staple feeder and dont dust them -
http://www.reptilianarts.com they have nice silk worms -- if you order in bulk like 50 they will come small you will need to order food and feed daily along w/ cleaning the containers out
http://www.coastilsilkworms.com
http://www.mulberryfarms.com they are high on shipping --
http://www.symptonbsf.com
Get a 10 gallon aquarium or plastic tote for the roaches - feed them dubia food and carrots or squash for hydration -- do not feed your dragon carrots too to much Vit A
here is a website for nutrition ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder

the critter depot has discoid - you can get those they are just like dubia
they also have silk worms - if you google live feeders for bearded dragon in Canada look at those websites and see what you can find
BSFL and silk worms are good staple feeders
