Big Apple Butterworms are the freshest worms in the country!  Guaranteed!  How do we do keep them so fresh?  Simple.  We import small batches on a frequent basis. Freshness is the key to providing you with Butterworms that really last and provide the healthiest food for your reptiles.

Did You Know?

  • Butterworms have a natural fruity smell (we're not kidding - they smell like fruit) and they are reddish-yellow in color.  Reptiles cannot resist them. Even the pickiest reptile will suck down Butterworms like it was their last meal.  
  • Butterworms contain more than twice the calcium of any other live feeder - that's amazing! We package our butterworms in bran flakes which can be stored in the refrigerator for typically up to 4 months.

Important!

  • Read our Live Feeder Shipping Schedule
  • If there is a problem with your order or there are damages or shortages, we MUST be notified (call or email) by the next business day for replacements.

Food & Water:

  • By keeping your worms in the refrigerator you avoid having to feed them or water them.
  • Butterworms will go into a hibernated state drastically slowing their metabolism.

 Storage:

  • Use a plastic container with an organic substrate such as organic oat meal or wheat bran. 
  • Place the container in the refrigerator. 
  • The only thing you need to watch for is damp substrate because that will lead to mold and eventual death. 
  • Well cared for Butterworms will survive anywhere from 1 to 4 months in a hibernated state.
