FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS: Insect-Eater Diet is ready to feed right out of the jar. Feed appropriate amount based on a free-choice 24 hour time period. Most animals will consume about one-fifth of their body weight per day. Feeding requirements for animals will vary according to species, stress factors, environment, and activities. Some species may require supplemental solid foods (specialized pellet diets) to be provided for long term heath. Do not let moist food sit out for long and dry up. Offer in an open dish, or it can be placed into hollow openings in branches to allow animals to forage. Do not leave moistened food out for more than 12 hours. Always provide fresh drinking water.

STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS: Once opened, store jar foods in your refrigerator. They will store refrigerated for 7-10 days. Freeze jar if it will not be finished in 7-10 days. We recommend scooping ½ tbsp servings into an ice tray or onto wax paper before freezing, for easy serving. Jar will last for up to 6 months in a freezer after opening. Unopened jars can be stored frozen up to 1 year.

Hedgehogs hate it. I tough love my hogs to get them to try new food. They refused to eat it every time I tried no matter how hungry they were. -Amber

I bought both the Insect Eater Diet and the HPW Berry Blend 12 ounce jars and my sugar glider didn’t like the Insect Eater Diet at all but loved the HPW. When I tried mixing them, he only ate a portion. Tip: Because this food needs to be consumed fairly quickly once jars have been opened and there was no way one sugar glider could consumer full jar in time, I placed 1/2 teaspoon portions on baking tray to freeze. Once frozen, I bagged and would thaw a portion at a time when needed. -Carol V.

I was expecting a similar consistency as the HPW. This is firmer, more of a pate. My gliders all enjoy the food. My hedgehog on the other hand, does not. He refuses to give it a shot. When I initially bought this, I was looking to add variety to the hedge's diet, so it failed in that department, but the gliders - who are use to get the HPW diet, were pleased with the taste. -Jessica S.

My hedgehog loves this stuff. He eats this first and only when this is gone will he eat his other food. -Jaime D.

My gliders love this stuff. I follow the suggested diet plan of Exotic Nutrition and like the change up between veggies. Insect eaters diet, HPW, and insects. And it makes my life easier with a monthly plan. -Leslie D.

This is my hedgehog's favorite snack!!! He goes crazy for it. It is the first thing that he goes for when he wakes up. I can never get him to eat any fruits or vegetables, but he eats this right up! -Barbara B.

My hedgehog loves this stuff. He will eat this stuff first before eating anything else in his bowl. He even wakes up from a dead sleep when I put it in his cage to only eat it and then goes back to sleep. Lol. It was easy for him to adjust to the new food when I gave it to him with his old food. He has a lot more energy as well when he's awake. Overall I do recommend this product to try. I do recommend portioning it up and freezing it anything that they wont eat in a week. Takes about a day to thaw out. -Haleigh R.

This product says it’s for hedgies and I guess nutritionally it is; however my hedgehog won’t touch it. He has no interest in it, even if I put some with his regular food he eats. -Rachelle L.

My guy likes this a lot but having only one I take and put this in an ice cube tray and freeze for future use. -Dorothy D.

I love this product but every time I order it the product always comes with at least one jar that is spoiled very frustrating. -Jada

Not a favorite for my hedgie like canned mealworms and crickets. Sometimes he'll eat it, but usually doesn't touch it. He prefers the Premium Insectivore diet.

by on July 28, 2017

This is a great product. It's loaded in nutritious and I'm guessing tasty ingredients. My baby loves it! I will definitely be back for more. The calcium: phosphorous ratio is great too.
