What is a Swell Live Locusts Pre-Pack?

Swell Live Locusts Pre-Packs come in a variety of sizes, ranging from 10-12mm to 60-80mm. Live Locusts are an excellent live reptile food and a good alternative to crickets because they are slightly slower moving. Locusts are also good live food insects for reptiles with movement problems or disabilities. Their higher protein level is also beneficial for egg-laying lizards, such as Bearded dragons and Leopard geckos.

What should I feed Locusts to keep them alive?

The favourite meal of most adult Locusts is a sweet fruit, however, they are happy with any fruit or vegetables. Locusts are vegetarian, which makes them particularly good as reptile food as the chances of Locusts biting your pets are low. A popular food for Locusts is fresh insecticide-free grass. No matter what you feed your Locusts, they will have a high vegetable gut content, making them an attractive food source for many exotic animals.

Can you buy Locusts?

Yes, you can buy Locusts from Swell Reptiles. Locusts are a very popular food for many exotic animals as they are relatively docile and easy to spot, thanks to their bright yellow wing case. They are also a lizard keeper favourite, due to their amazing growth rate and slow-moving nature. We sell a wide variety of live Locusts including pre-packs, super-packs and bulk bags.

How long do feeder Locusts live?

One of the things that make Locusts an excellent food is that they can keep for about a month if cared for carefully. Locusts simply need a food source, some water and an enclosure to survive for a few weeks, unlike other insects.
