Chubby's dried black soldier fly larvae (Calci worms as they are otherwise known) arrived very quickly and in a lovely re-usable plastic tub. The contents was dust free and very clean looking - the best I've had and the the local hedgehogs love them (well, they disappear overnight anyway)! These are by far the best on the market and are much better for hedgehogs than mealworms, which can give them the runs! I've tried other suppliers of calci worms and the dust and broken larvae has been really bad, (supplied in a bag) and very smelly. Even though hedgehogs are wild creatures, I still like to feed them the best because their numbers are dropping at an alarming rate, so we need to save these lovely animals from extinction. Our garden birds like these too, so I recommend them very highly. We also received very nice communication from staff at Chubby. All in all, a very nice team to deal with and a great service.
Great service and good value!

What Are Dried Mealworms?
Mealworms are the larvae of the darkling beetle. Much like a butterfly transforming from a caterpillar into a chrysalis and then turning into the butterfly itself, a darkling beetle egg grows into a mealworm, which then turns into a pupae before the darkling beetle emerges. Dried mealworms are simply these mealworms dried out by either freeze-drying or heating. So surprisingly, mealworms are not actually worms at all!
