I feed my young box turtles mealworms for treats. Is this suitable for gut loading worms that will be fed to turtles?
Answer by ChewyAug 03, 2021
This recipe is intended to be fed to insects only. It is not formulated to be fed to worms.

does this diet replace the need to dust the insects in calcium prior to feeding them to your gecko?
Answer by ChewyNov 10, 2021
No additional supplementation of insects is needed when giving this food. This cricket diet contains high levels of calcium, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin A to enrich the diets of insect-eating reptiles, birds and mammals as part of a complete insectivore diet. This recipe has a calcium content of 9.00% maximum.

Would this work for trying to keep some rescued ladybugs alive in a terrarium?
Answer by ChewyNov 10, 2021
This diet is not intended for use in breeding or raising insects. The use of Better Bug® Gut Loading Diet will enhance the total body nutrients of the feeder insect, resulting in optimized nutrition being delivered to your reptile. This food is best for insectivorous reptiles such as Anoles, Basilisks, Bearded Dragons, Chameleons, Geckos and Water Dragons.

Can I use this for the feeder insects I feed to my tarantula?
Answer by ChewyAug 16, 2021
This food is intended for crickets and feeder insects.

I actually like it!

I keep dubia roaches and mealworm farms for my leopard gecko. On occasion I also offer crickets. I was not sure about this food as you hear all the time that packaged diets are not necessary when you use fresh fruits and veg. However I live in the south and the humidity quickly molds everything, and mold will kill an entire roach colony fairly quickly so I wanted to try this. The roaches absolutely eat it and it produces a lot less frass than the fruit and veg, though I still offer carrots for moisture. I also have caught crickets eating it in the enclosure, which many reptile keepers advised me if you do not provide food for crickets, they will bite your gecko. The really nice thing about this is my gecko doesn't try to eat it, unlike the pea I watched him eat a couple of weeks ago (yikes) so i feel a lot better leaving this in the enclosure for crickets than peas!

Great for Gut-loading feeder insects

Our leopard gecko absolutely inhales live meal worms. Pre-feeding the worms Mazuri helps keep him healthy.
