Phoenix worms now full on bugs?

Postby crunchsmommie » Thu Jun 07, 2018 11:36 am

Hey so awhile ago I got my beardie some phoenix worms because he absolutely loves them. 500 of them. Well, now the worms are beginning to turn into whatever bug they're supposed to turn into I opened a container of them and they're all now just some winged bug (black solider flies??). I guess I waited too long?? So, in this state is it safe to feed to my beardie still or do I just need to throw them out? And, if it is still alright to feed to him, how the heck do I go about trying to feed him something that flies around!! (I swear after this I'm just gonna go back to giving him roaches lol)

Yep those are black soldier flies. My dragon loves eating them. They are pretty slow moving and easy to catch. You can pinch them and offer them that way. If they get away they are pretty easy to track and will tend to gravitate toward a window. You can just pinch them to get them back pretty easily. Quite safe to feed them and they are a good snack.
