HOW TO CARE FOR SUPERWORMS:
Do not put superworms in the refrigerator.
They go dormant in weather below 60 degrees. Warm them up in room temperature in a plastic tray for 6 hours before assuming they are dead. (They turn black if dead).
Food for superworms:
They are very active and require warmer temperature (do not refrigerate). Superworms are tropical, ideal temperature is between 70 to 80 degrees. Transfer them from the shipping box to a tall plastic container the size of 2 shoes boxes or a flat cake pan size with out the lid. They will eat out of any paper box eventually, but will not be able to get out of anything slick. Place 2 inches of worm/food/bedding AKA red wheat bran flakes on the bottom and 1/2 inch on top of them. Add fresh bedding/wheat bran when you notice it becomes sandy looking or at less once a week. Twice a month replace all the bedding/wheat bran flakes completely, their lifespan is apx 3 to 4 months. We offer worm food in 1 LB Worm Food or 4 LB Worm Food.
Water for superworms:
Do not need to give them water, they get water source from vegetables but it is not necessary. However if you don’t have worm food, give them CARROTS, POTATOES AND THE BEST ARE CACTUS. Change fresh regularly.
The cleaner they are the healthier they are. Keep them dry. Remove any dead warms & shed skins, and waste material (make great fertilizer). Wash the container out with hot water and completely dry the container regularly. Keep away pesticides and cleaning solution other than a mild bleach solution. (Do not use any kind of soap or chemical.)
