Are waxworms the same as black soldier fly larvae or butterworms?

No. Although they may look similar, waxworms, black soldier fly larvae, and butterworms are very different insects. Black soldier fly larvae (aka NutriGrubs) are low in fat, high in calcium, and suitable for use as a staple feeder. Butterworms are larger than waxworms and have a red-orange color.
