Calci-worms highest calcium levels of any feeder insect low in fat and contains antimicrobial properties. No need to gut load. Calci-Worms have a naturally balanced calcium phosphorus ratio and are the only calcium-rich feeder that can be safely fed as a staple.
Calci-Worms are also a natural weapon against coccidia. In addition to having a perfect balance of calcium and phosphorus, Calci-Worms provide high levels of natural lauric acid. Lauric acid is known for its excellent antimicrobial properties including potent activity against lipid coated viruses, clostridium and pathogenic protozoa including coccidia. Lauric acid is a medium chain saturated fatty acid found in Calci-Worms as well as some vegetable oils and in dairy products. 53% of the fat in Calci-Worms is beneficial lauric acid, a proven antimicrobial especially effective against coccidiosis.
The Calci-worm is an excellent food for conditioning your pet if you are considering breeding since the calcium content will allow the breeding female to retain and use larger than normal amounts of natural calcium for egg production and keep her in good condition after the labour intensive time of egg laying. You may find your hard to breed pet is more willing to reproduce after eating some of these calcium rich larvae.
