Wax worms are pretty fatty and not all that nutritious. I suggest starting a colony of a different kind. Silk worms would be a good choice if you can get a mulberry bush or a bunch of mulberry chow.

Waxworms are a pest of bee hives, I believe it takes a mixture of bees wax, honey and maybe some other things to culture them.

I would spend the effort on something more nutritious like silkworms or soldier fly larvae (when spring comes back around).

well they would not be just for my beardie, we have some toads, mice, and of course my bearded,
but my mom is also a wild life rehaber, and could use them for squirrels, chipmunks, and birds,

and just trowing this out there i've heard some things about horn worms are they good for beardies?
i don't really have any experience with them

thanks
