Waxworms for Pet Food

Waxworms are a widely used food source for both caged and wild birds, reptiles, amphibians, and small animals such as sugar gliders and hedgehogs. Waxworms are soft bodied, fat grubs with small heads. They make an excellent addition to your pets’ diet. Waxworms are about the best food for sick or malnourished animals, quickly allowing the animal to gain weight.

One of the best ways to keep animals healthy is to provide a diverse diet. Waxworms are a fantastic way of providing nutritional diversity. Animals absolutely love the taste of them. Waxworms are easily digested and a favorite food source of many pets and fish.

Waxworms for Wild Birds 

Live Waxworms will entice insect-eaters to your feeder. We’ve taken a tip from our friends in England, who always feed live waxworms to their garden birds. Plumper than mealworms, live waxworms appeal to bluebirds, flickers, woodpeckers, and others and provide protein, potassium and fat to their diet.  

Birds that enjoy this feed: bluebirds, cardinals, flickers, jays, kinglets, orioles, robins, tanagers, thrushes, titmice, warblers, waxwings, woodpeckers and others. 

Waxworms for Fishing 

Large, milky-white waxworms make dynamite bait for trout, small bass, small channel catfish, whitefish and panfish such as perch, crappie and bluegill. Some days, panfish will hit nothing else. Meatier than spikes (maggots), wax worms share the same creamy-white color.

Waxworms are commonly used for ice fishing or in open water. Keep them fresh and lively by preventing them from freezing and change your bait frequently. Tobacco tins kept in an inside pocket are popular and effective. A tip for targeting bigger fish, or fishing in murky water is to use waxworms, instead of smaller baits.

Waxworm use is not limited to winter fishing. Keep fish interested during the open water season by using wax worms effectively. Especially after a weather front, or when heavily pressured, larger panfish will often respond to these tasty morsels when they will not respond to worms or minnows. Because fewer anglers are using waxworms, they are different from the usual bait that fish are used to seeing in heavily fished waters.

Shipping Bulk Waxworms

Our Bulk 3000 Count Waxworms are shipped one of two ways: 1) Without Bedding, or, 2) Packaged in twelve 250ct cups with wood shaving bedding.  Select packaging method at checkout.

1) Our standard bulk waxworms are shipped overnight in heavy, ventilated screened boxes without bedding. The bedding material is not necessary in overnight shipping; however, it is important that shortly after you receive your bulk shipment that you transfer the waxworms into smaller 100-250 count cups or containers with ventilated lids. Add a 1"-2" layer of sawdust or wood shavings (aspen or pine shavings) to the bottom of the container then transfer the worms.  Aspen or pine shavings is the same material used to line hamster cages. You can find this material at any pet supply or big box store such as Wal-Mart. The bedding material wicks off any moisture that may develop inside the container and can help keep your waxworms in storage longer. If the bedding becomes moist lids should be removed to allow moisture to escape, or replace the bedding.  

2) For just few dollars more you can have your waxworms shipped in pre-packaged 250 count cups with wood shaving bedding. When you receive your waxworm shipment you can simply leave the waxworms in the cups they are shipped in. You'll love the convenience!
