What is a Swell Live Waxworms Pre-Pack?

Swell Live Waxworms Pre-Pack are bundles of live Waxworms (sometimes called Wax worms) that have been bred to feed exotic animals, including birds, reptiles and amphibians. We feed Waxworms nutritious honey and wheat germ to ensure they are packed full of the key nutrients your pets need.

Live Waxworms are ideal for various garden birds, they are the larvae of the Greater wax moth and so are filled with proteins needed for growth and development. They are particularly good for ill or growing animals as they contain a high amount of fat.

How long do Waxworms live?

Once they arrive at your home, room-temperature Waxworms will normally last around a week or two before changing into moths. The life cycle of the Waxworm and Greater Wax moth can be slowed by lowering the temperature of the shallow container your worms are kept in and carefully managing the conditions around the Waxworms.

Are Waxworms good for birds?

Waxworms are often bought for wild birds and garden birds. They are a great treat for the bird table. However, you should refrain from buying them for a domestic bird as a staple feed as they are quite fatty and could lead to poor health over time. Waxworms are best used during Winter and Spring when their delicious nutrients and many benefits can be used to support parent birds and hatchlings.

How much are live Waxworms?

Live Waxworms are generally inexpensive, but you can save and get the best deals when you buy live Waxworms at Swell Reptiles. We offer both standard Waxworm packs and bulk bags to suit all your live food needs.

All our Waxworms are sent from our live food distributor on a next-day delivery service that should ensure you get your live Waxworms as quickly as possible, allowing for a little longer in Northern Ireland or Scottish islands and over bank holidays.
