Been struggling to find insects for a hedgehog I rescued. She hated all the other brands and as a last resort I tried these. After a week I noticed she was actually eating her bugs. These do not mold. I was worried about that because of a review I read when ordering. But I have never had them go bad. Hamsters also love these. There’s a lot in the bags. Chewy please keep these in stock. This will be the only type I buy from now on.
I got these for my 16 year old leopard gecko, he was not impressed, turning his nose up at the offering. However, because I feed the wild birds and critters, they didn't go to waste and are a hit with those guys. So, although not approved by Joe Joe the gecko, they're approved by skunks, opossum, nuthatches, and woodpeckers
Must use immediately! Once open no matter how you store the left overs, they grow mold very fast. Kinda disappointed.
I have a chahoua gecko (Darwin) and a roommate (Amy) who does not want live bugs in the house. A chahoua gecko can survive on pangea alone, but... So I've tried pretty much e v e r y t h i n g out there. This is the best, by a lot. Darwin loves it. I started with the variety pack and while he likes everything in there, he L O V E S the mealworms most of all, so it's nice to be able to get just that alone. My ONLY complaint is that I wish they did twice as many bags with half as many bugs, since I do waste a lot. You can put them in the fridge for up to a week, but I don't. I feed him everything he'll eat for 24 hours then dispose of the worms (so basically two nights of feeding). So basically for $20 a month, Darwin gets fresh feed insects (and no risk of disease or parasites because they're cooked) ...and I get zero live bugs, zero mess, and a happy gecko and roommate. Cannot recommend this highly enough. In the variety pack, the grasshoppers are too big for my gecko personally. But he will eat them cut up without issue.
