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.
Butterworms have a natural fruity smell (we're not kidding - they smell like fruit) and they are redish 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 butteworms in bran flakes which can be stored in the refrigerator for typically up to 4 months.

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