Superworms are the larvae of mealworm beetles. They have four stages of life: egg, larvae, pupa and adult beetle. Superworms eat and grow until they have stored enough energy to transform into a pupa and then into a beetle.
Ratking.ch Premium Quality Superworms can be added to the diet of many animals to help provide variety in a balanced and naturally nutritious diet. As active movers, live Superworms are also perfect for animals who are stimulated by the movement of live food in order to eat. They are a clean and easily handled food.
Superworms are high in protein and fat so are good for treats and building up young, sick, injured or gravid animals. Like any treat, Superworms should not be regarded as a stable food and always offered as part of a varied and well-balanced diet.
