5kg Dried Chubby Silkworm Pupae

Dried Silkworm Pupae are a 100% natural, high quality, high protein nutritional crunchy treat which can be fed to many animals including wild birds, hedgehogs, turtles, koi and other fish and many reptiles. As well as being naturally high in protein they also have high levels of calcium, nutrients, vitamins and minerals and other essential fatty acids.

We often find that animals can take a while to get used to this new taste. Why not try to crush or grind our Silkworm Pupae into a dust to make a high protein supplement that can be added to their normal food? They can also be soaked in warm water for around 20-30 minutes to rehydrate them and make them easier to eat.

Silkworm pupae have been said to be especially beneficial in the growth and colour enhancement of Koi Carp. They also provide better slime coat protection to resist parasite and bacterial infections resulting in a better, bigger, healthier fish. If feeding to fish only feed when the water temperature is above 16C.

Reptile expert, A. Lanois, says that silkworms are, "naturally the healthiest insect you can get" because of their nutritional value and low fat content.


5kg of Dried Chubby Mealworms comes packaged in a clear plastic bag.

Not as popular as mealworms

I bought these thinking the wild birds, and my ducks, might like a change.. When I opened the worms: phew, did they smell! So I started thinking, 'hmm, maybe this wasn't such a good idea'..
Anyway, the wild birds didn't really take these for the first few days I introduced them to their diet.
One of my drakes picked one up to eat and his excitement at the large bug soon turned to disgust: he spat the worm out and looked like a child with a bad taste in his mouth!
Finally, when all the mealworms had been exhausted, and the weather hit the - temperatures, the wild birds began to take the silkworm.
They are a good quality product, I just don't think I will buy them again for the local birds! Saying that; the birds in my area seem to be quite choosy with their food, so it is not to say that no wild birds will prefer them
