Black Soldier Fly Larvae are an excellent feeder bug for any reptile or animal that eats insects! They have a good amount of protein, are high in fat, and are softer and easier to digest than some other feeder insects. Their most important feature though is their naturally high calcium content!
Animals need a diet that contains about twice as much calcium as it does phosphorus to prevent health problems like Metabolic Bone Disease. Most insects contain much more phosphorus than they do calcium, which is why we use calcium supplements. Black Soldier Fly Larvae, however, have a perfect ratio of 2:1 calcium to phosphorus!
