Superworm Care Sheet
Proper superworm care is essential to the health and longevity of your live superworms. Properly cared for live superworms can be stored for up to 6 months using
these simple superworm care instructions.
Important: Do Not Refrigerate Superworms - They Will Die.
Storage of Superworms
Superworms should be stored in a deep plastic container, at least 6 inches deep. We prefer Sterilite brand containers. If you purchase another brand, ensure the
seal on the bottom reads "PP" or "Polypropylene." Superworms cannot climb polypropylene containers. The sides of the container should be smooth and free of
scratches, glue, or sealent in order to prevent climbing. Superworms are excellent climbers and if they are able to get within 3 inches of the top of the container -
they will escape.
The container should have a well ventilated lid, or no lid at all. Lids should be ventilated by cutting out a large section and hot gluing in a screen, or by perforating
the lid with a drill.
Unventilated lids trap moisture and raise the humidity of the container. Mold and parasites such as mites thrive in humid conditions. If mold, mites, or other
parasites have invaded your superworm container - you should not feed the superworms to your animals as they could be dangerous.
Superworms should be kept at room temperature - 78 degrees fahrenheit is optimal. Superworms will not pupate as long as there are other superworms around.
You should never refrigerate superworms, or they will die.
Feeding of Superworms
Superworms should be stored in a bedding of wheat bran, oat bran, or oatmeal. The bran provides all of the food the superworms will need in order to keep them
alive in storage. When the bedding becomes powdered you should sift the superworms out and replace their bedding. This powder is called “frass.” Frass is the
waste material generated by the superworms.
In addition to food, superworms require hydration. The best way to provide this hydration to them is by placing a few slices of carrots, potatoes, or apples on top of
the bedding. New fruits or vegetables should be offered every 3 days, or when they are consumed. If fruits or vegetables become dried out, or moldy, they should
be removed immediately to keep the mold from spreading to the bedding or being eaten by the superworms.
Superworms (Zophobas morio) native to tropical Central and South America are a very popular food item for reptiles. These larva have several common names
including kingworms and zophobas. They measure 1 1/2 to 2 inches in length and are about the thickness of a number 2 pencil. Because of their size and movement
they’ll easily catch the attention of your animals. They are naturally large and have been given no growth hormones unlike the giant mealworm. The total life span
for a superworm is a little over a year from egg to beetle
