Locusts are an ideal livefood for slower moving reptiles.
Live locusts are a good alternative to crickets and because they are slower-moving, are good live food for reptiles with movement problems and disabilities.
The pre-packs come in boxes depending on the size of the insect you specify. You can also upgrade to a superpack and get twice as many insects. For example in the super pack small locusts comes in a box of 40 (whereas the pre pack is a box of 20) and the large locusts come in a box of 20 in the super pack where the the pre pack is a box of 10.
Their higher protein level is also beneficial for egg-laying lizards.
Live Food Locust Pre-Packs are available from Swell Reptiles at discounted prices.
As with all live foods, it is vital they are kept healthy - and your locusts will need feeding just like your reptile.
Our experts recommend feeding your locusts a high quality food such as ProRep Bug Grub.
It is also important to dust your locusts with a calcium, vitamin and mineral supplement such as Vetark Nutrobal.
