Wax worm pupae and moths?

Postby Oxymiocysu » Fri Apr 19, 2019 3:05 pm

I know wax worm larvae are good as an occasional treat, but can beardies eat the pupae? Before they turn into moths. And if they do turn into moths, can beardies eat those also?

(Not sure if this belongs under feeding or feeders, sorry.)

Thanks for your response!

Just cripple one of the wings a bit and it will flutter right around him. :)

I recently learned that the wax moths attack bee hives. Hence the name wax worm etc. Try not to let them lose in the wild. Save the bees!
