The search for quality live insects for sale online can take new owners on a wild ride to new vendors and unknown locations on this quest for food. It is good to know what your pets’ diet consists of in the wild and what you should be feeding it at your home. It is also good to know where to get and how to keep the live feeder insects that your new pet is going to require on a daily and weekly basis.
The Dos and Don’ts Of Feeder Insects
Having been a reptile retail store owner for over twenty years I have seen a number of ridiculous things but some things seem to be too ridiculous even for the average reptile owner. One of the number of rookie mistakes reptile keepers make is housing the food they feed their pets. When it comes to live feeder insects, most people think that some sort of magic keeps their crickets and worms alive indefinitely. What I keep emphasizing to the customers is that a healthy and well fed food item translates over to a healthy and well fed pet. Gut loading feeder bugs is as important as heating and lighting for your lizards and other insect eating reptiles. Keeping your feeder insects clean, dry and well hydrated and well fed is of the utmost importance.
