New from Exotic Nutrition! Dried Calci-Yum Worms (black soldier fly larvae) offer your pets an all natural calcium rich treat. Black soldier fly larvae are considered the best new alternative for incorporating calcium and protein into an animal's diet. During its larva phase, the black soldier fly feeds off various kinds of organic material, converting this to proteins. This is why Calci-Yum Worms have such a high nutritional value. Excellent for Backyard Chickens, Bluebirds, Sugar Gliders, Hedgehogs, Squirrels, Skunks, Reptiles, Turtles, Tropical Fish and other insect eating animals. Amount: 1 lb.

  • High in protein to support strong and healthy growth.
  • Naturally sun-dried to maintain their nutritional value
  • Store for a year or longer, no refrigeration necessary! 
  • Can be offered straight or mixed with other foods to make a custom blend. Place in a feeder or sprinkle on the ground to encourage natural foraging behavior.
  • Suggested forage toys to put treat inside: HERE

Healthy treats have several benefits for both pets and pet owners. Treats can lend variety to an otherwise monotonous diet, provide good exercise for teeth and jaws, and add behavioral enrichment for animals that spend their lives in a small, limited environment. Most importantly, treats form a connection between pets and pet owners, assisting in bonding and training.

Ingredients: Black Soldier Fly Larvae (Hermetia illucens) *SOURCED FROM CANADA

Guaranteed Analysis: crude protein (min) 45%, crude fat (min) 35%, crude fiber (max) 8%, moisture (max) 8%, calcium (min) 3%.

Feeding Recommendation: This product is a treat and should be fed sparingly, it is not a substitute for a regular, balanced diet. Offer treats 2-3 times per week or as a small portion (less than 10%) of the main diet. Treats may lead to health issues like obesity when overfed. If your pet is not consuming its regular balanced diet, withhold serving treats until stable eating habits resume.

Importance of Calcium: Research has shown that natural feed with balanced Ca:P ratios increases animal health and contributes to stronger bones and shiny feathers. Calcium is especially important for laying birds because a lack of it can result in poor laying, soft shells, and can cause behavior problems such as egg eating as the bird tries to recoup the much needed calcium.

My hedgie loves these worms! -Lisa K.

I am trying these for the first time as treats for my cats - they are used to mealworms. I liked the higher calcium levels of Calci-Yums that cats need and wanted to give them a try. If the cats got a vote - they would say "well, maybe, if there are no mealworms"; I love the nutrition profile. So, the vote is a compromise for now - we will see how this works out. -L. Pierce.

My opossum loves her calci-yums I offer them to her twice a week for the perfect CA:P ratio for her needs. The protein and fat is very high for her needs, however with feeding her 1heeping tablespoon twice a week she is staying at her optimal weight. I will continue to buy Calci-yums worms. -Julee S.

I purchased Calci-Yum Worms as a supplemental source of protein and calcium for my ducks and chickens. I will not order them again. My birds did eat them but reluctantly. I hate the smell and so do my birds. I will go back to other calcium sources and ordering regular medium mealworms. I was impressed with the price and the service is excellent. My order arrived 2 days early. I am disappointed that my birds do not enjoy Calci-Yum Worms like they do regular medium mealworms. -David B.

Bought a bag for my Bosc monitor and fire skink. They seem to enjoy them, especially if I rehydrate them. I will definitely be buying this product again.
