Do I need to provide them with any food? If so, what's the best thing to provide them with?
Answer by ChewyJan 27, 2023
These Small Live Black Soldier Fly Larvae are not required to be fed. These larvaes have a shelf life of about 2 weeks when stored as instructed.

Are the small ones good for praying mantis
Answer by ChewySep 11, 2022
This food is excellent for reptile hatchlings and very small reptiles, such as dart frogs.

is the grain like stuff they come in safe for my beardie to eat? I try to shake all of the stuff off of the larva but was unable to get every little bit off.
Answer by ChewyApr 19, 2022
Per the manufacturer, it is recommended rinsing the Black Soldier Fly Larvae to get most of the substrate off. Some ingested won't harm your reptile but a lot or over a prolonged amount of time can cause long term issues.

will these larvae turn into flies?
Answer by ChewyJan 26, 2022
The larvae will turn black when there are pupating and about to turn into flies. The shelf-life of these grubs is at least 2 weeks when stored as instructed. If you want them to go dormant keep them at 55F which is warmer than a refrigerator.

Tiny, very little

I was really pleased with how quickly I have gotten my order of both small and large soldier flies. However the size large is like a medium and the small is like extra small. I will not be ordering these for my chameleons any longer. I have given both sizes a chance and it does not work for my chameleons. I recommend these for very small reptiles.

Beardie loves them

I purchased 5,000 for my juvenile bearded dragon, Elliott. He loves them. So much easier to deal with than dusting super tiny crickets that die within two days and then back to the pet store. So happy I found these!

Usually great

We have been getting these fly larva for months for our juvenile beardie and have had great success. This last batch however came mostly dead on arrival. I’m going to have to order a supplemental order to make it to our next auto shipment. Hopefully it was just a bad batch.

Great all around.

I received my 5k bsfl and almost all were alive, I only found a handful dead, no big deal. I kept them for awhile in a separate tub but then moved them to my bsfl compost bin and I noticed they started dying a couple days later. After a week, I noticed a lot of dead larvae. I’m not sure what happened exactly but I have a few ideas that were all on my end. As of today, there’s just a handful left alive, I think something happened inside my box. Disappointed they’re dying but it happens.
