*Research findings:

  • Evaluation of nutrient composition of common invertebrate feeders fed different supplemental diets. Latney, L.V., Toddes, B.D., Wyre, N.R., Brown, D.C., Briscoe, J.A., 2009. Proc. Nutrition Advisory Group. Tulsa, OK, pp 22 -23.
    • Overview - Mealworms and superworms were fed a variety of diets for 48-244 hours, then proximate and mineral composition was measured. Calcium uptake by the insects was highest for these fed Mazuri ® High Calcium Cricket Diet, providing a more ideal calcium:phosphorus balance.

  • A hydration source should be available to insects at all times.
  • Thoroughly wash feed and water bowls on a regular basis. It is always good practice to wash hands thoroughly after feeding and/or handling animals.
