Do I need to dust superworms with supplements before feeding them to my pet?


Superworms contain unusually high amounts of phosphorus, which can prevent your pet from absorbing calcium properly. For perspective, the ideal dietary Ca:P ratio for most captive reptiles is 2:1, and superworms have an average ratio of 1:13.5.

You can resolve this issue by dusting superworms with high-quality, superfine calcium powder before feeding. Stick the worms in a paper or plastic bag with calcium powder inside and gently shake until they are evenly coated.
