New source for insects

Postby KarrieRee » Wed Jul 15, 2020 6:46 am

Just to let everyone know if they are looking for silk worms or horn worms etc I found another site called http://www.hornworms.com they are pretty reasonable on shipping $7 I dont know how the product is as I just ordered from them silkworms hornworms and some super worms - I will see how it goes and if its all good I will send others to the site
I did get a email that they are slow w/ the super worms so order is being sent w/ out them and they will send supers later

Karrie, are silkworms something XYZ reptiles only carries periodically? Every time I have gone to their site, all I see for bugs is isopods. I am on mobile though, so it may just be I'm not looking in the right place.

You have to search on their site I dont know why they dont have them listed ---
I am going to post some websites later w/ some pricing --- so far coastalsilkworms and artilianarts is the cheapest I have found for silk worms --- and they are both out of stock ---
