8lb Chubby Mix (Mealworm & Black Soldier Fly Larvae Combo)

We are mixing it up here at Chubby with a combination of our great tasting Mealworms and our new Black Soldier Fly Larvae.
This mix is sure to enrich your pet's (or wild bird's) diet giving them a boost of Protein and Calcium in one handy mixed bag.

We all know why our pets love our great tasting Mealworms, but what about our new Black Soldier Fly Larvae?

Chubby Dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae are comparable to dried mealworms but have a much higher nutritional value. They have 23 to 61 times more calcium than other commonly fed feeder insects and naturally feature a well balanced calcium-phosphorus ratio. 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 such as chickens. Lack of calcium can result in poor laying, soft shells and can cause behaviour problems such as egg eating as the chicken tries to recoup the much-needed calcium. Feeding Black Soldier Fly Larvae as a treat is an excellent way to increase these vital nutrients and we can assure you, they will soon become a favourite! 

Despite carrying a somewhat aggressive sounding name, they are harmless and wen alive do not bite. During its larva phase, which lasts a few weeks, it feeds off various kinds of organic material, converting this to proteins. The adult fly is able to entirely live off the nutritional reserves it had built up as a larva. This is why Dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae have such a high nutritional value.

A whole variety of animals love the natural goodness in all our 'Chubby' products including wild birds, reptiles, fish, hedgehogs, budgies, sugar gliders and many more. Although you can buy live Black Soldier Fly Larvae, dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae are just as good with the added benefit of easy and long-lasting storage. Dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae are also a lot better for anyone that is squeamish!

Black Fly Larva

There was a bird riot in the back yard when I put out the black fly larva. Right now the babies are learning to fly but still want moms to feed them. One little blue bird was standing in a pile of larva begging his mom for worms. So cute.

Excellent customer service

I been ordering from these guys for over a year now. Chickens and ducks love them. Last order only got half shipment so reached out to them by email and was only about 4hr lag before they got back to me. We got everything straightened out and other half of order on its way. Excellent customer service and good product.

Best Chicken Snack

These, mixed with various dried spices and oatmeal are a good evening treat for my girls.

Guineas like these. Bigger than a mealworm

My guineas live mealworms. Took a little getting used to on these big boys. But they are now loving them.
They never did enjoy the pupa? Silkworm? Things. Dang.

I was overcharged by $11.00. Contacted your company and talked to a woman who took about 5 minutes to spell my name right. Said she would take care of it. I didn't have much hope after talking to her. Shotty way to do business.
