LIVE Wax Worms
Waxworms are a soft, juicy, and plump treat that Hedgehogs just love - sometimes called “The vanilla cake of feeders”
Hedgehogs and Reptiles devour the creamy fat bodied worms.
Another benefit from o the wax worm is how easily digestible they are.
Fishermen use them for ice fishing, pan fish, perch, bass, and catfish.
Care And Storage
Waxworms will last one to two weeks at room temperature. They can be kept cool at 60 degrees, where they become dormant and will last up to 8 weeks - but must not be any colder than 55°.
They are ideally kept in a wine cooler, butter tray in the refrigerator, or in a cellar. They must be stored in low humidity. If the bedding feels moist when they arrive, leave the lids off to let them dry out.
Daily remove any dead worms (they will be black) and remove the cocoons of any that are spinning one.
