Help and advice on shopping for: Live Bean Weevils

The perfect live food for small scalies

A great food source for small reptiles or infants from larger species, Bean Weevils are a specialist live food with a lot of application. While not offering all of the benefits of crickets or locusts they are easy to keep and feed to your pet.

What are Bean Weevils?

Bean Weevils are small beetles that feed on dried food. They burrow into beans, peas and pulses as larvae before emerging as adults, only a few millimetres long. Bean Weevils are a good source of protein for small reptiles as well as young frogs, toads, spiders and praying mantis, they are non-aggressive and can do little to injure even small animals.

Why should I buy Bean Weevils?

Bean Weevils are the best live food for small and immature reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. While they don’t offer as much nutrition as crickets or locusts they are easy to eat and present little challenge. Bean Weevils like moisture and will eat most jelly additives, so it’s possible to enhance your reptiles diet with any vitamins they need by feeding it to the weevils. Bean Weevils are also bioactive and will help to break down waste material, making them a useful addition to an enclosure.

What are the main types of Bean Weevils for sale?

While Bean Weevils can be sold like other live food we sell them in a culture that contains both adult weevils and feeding larvae. These cultures allow you to create a small colony that can be used as custodians, as well as food for your reptile.

What should I look for?

Bean Weevils need little upkeep and are quite small, making them easy to store, however, we still recommend ensuring that you have enough space and live food supplies to house a full culture before making a purchase.
