Wax worms are the perfect treat for your reptile or amphibian pet. A great source of lipids, wax worms are a fantastic way to fatten up your pet or put some weight on a female after laying eggs or giving birth. Wax worms are like junk food for your reptile or amphibian - feed sparingly. Josh's Frogs offers waxworms in 25 count, 50 count, 250 count, and 1000 count cups.

How to Feed

Wax worms are a perfect feeder insect treat for: bearded dragons, crested geckos, leopard geckos, fat tail geckos, tree frogs, turtles, day geckos, and other small to medium sized lizards or turtles. Feed waxworms as a treat to your pets. Waxworms are very high in fat and make great treats, but should not be used as a staple diet. Sift waxworms from their bedding and feed them to your pet using feeding tongs or a bowl.

How to Store

When Josh's Frogs ships waxworms they are already stored on aspen bedding without food - exactly how you want to keep them. Keep waxworms in the fridge to prolong their lifespan. As waxworms go bad, they will become dark in color and eventually turn black and spoil. Discard any black waxworms. Under ideal conditions, waxworms should keep for several weeks.

My lizards love them Review by Becca
The wax worms I've ordered have always been big and juicy. My leopard geckos, Beardies and chameleons all get excited when they see them. Its a nice treat for them. (Posted on 11/10/2018)
Great Quality Review by Ginny
Very few arrived dead. Much better quality than the ones at my local pet stores. Some turned to moths before I had a chance to feed them to my beardie and leo, but I was able to feed those to my carnivorous plants - bonus! (Posted on 11/6/2018)
All healthy! Review by Shawna
Every single worm arrived healthy, alive, and active. My crested geckos loved them! (Posted on 8/25/2018)
Great treat for beardie. Review by Lynn
My hatchling loves an occasional waxworm. If you leave one in his tank, he'll hunt it as it wiggles around. I bought a snack pack of 50 and let the worms warm up after the fridge so he can hunt a bit. (Posted on 8/22/2018)
Beardies approved! Review by TJ
Got these as a different treat for my bearded dragons. They loved them! (Posted on 8/13/2018)

Waxworms Review by Diane
I bought some waxworms for my chicken, I normally buy waxworms at local bait shop, but being that it is wintertime I had to find another source, that's when I cam across Josh's. These waxworms without sounding corny are gorgeous! No comparison to what I get at the bait shop...I'll be a regular customer. Thanks Josh's Frogs!! (Posted on 1/29/2017)
Perfect Review by Andrew
Joshs frogs has better wax worms than I have found anywhere else. I bought 250 3 weeks ago and they are still alive and well (they ones my dragons havnt devoured) in my fridge. When I have bought elsewhere, I constantly find dead worms in with the live ones every time I open the containers. But not with joshs frogs. I have yet to find a single dead worm. They are fat and healthy. Whatever they are doing, I am happy to keep buying. (Posted on 2/25/2016)
