    Question What to Feed Superworms????

    Ran out of crickets, so I bought some superworms. Boy they are expensive little buggers. So what do I feed them?

    I set mine up with oats and fish food and put carrots in for water.

    Re: What to Feed Superworms????

    Thanks, that's what I'll feed them. Now what about bedding or substrate, earlier I just put some wheat bran in with them and put some carrots on top. They seem really hungry when I put it in with them they latched right on to the carrots and when I tried to take some out to feed my Bearded Dragon they wouldn't let go of the carrots. It was like a dozen of puppies trying to feed all at once on the mother.
    What's the best substrate, I have about 75 of them???

    This is my set up (welll actually my superworm beetle set up). I'm out of superworms so I thought I'd show you this. The beetles don't get fish food and I have some paper towel tubes I keep in there (took them out for this pic). But the set up is otherewise the same.

    Save yourself some $$$ by breeding them. Is it surprisingly easy.

    Though mine live on a soil substrate, they get fresh vegetables any time I prepare them (peels, ends, etc), and stale bread ends.

    Re: What to Feed Superworms????

    Yes, I was looking at your set up, sound like it would be worth a try.
    I keep hearing different things, some people say that supers are not very healthy ( that they are like mealworm) and others say that they are better than mealworms. What do you think about this, They are for my bearded dragon.
    Thanks for your help

    they are perfectly fine to feed to your Bearded Dragon. People think the exo-skeleton is too tough and will cause impaction. This is false, as long as your Bearded Dragon has the proper basking temps.

    with most animals, variety is best. I would not advise feeding only one prey item to an animal unless it was specialized to eat only that.
