Superworms, or darkling beetle larvae (Zophobas morio), are a great addition to your reptile’s diet! High in protein and fat, they have a nutritional profile similar to mealworms but more digestible due to a softer exoskeleton. They are also larger – about 1.5 to 2 inches long on average. This makes them a great choice for medium to large reptiles such as adult bearded dragons and turtles, as well as birds and other insectivorous pets.
Sorry, we cannot ship superworms to FL.
Superworms are shipped fully contained within a sturdy deli cup with lid (perforated for proper air flow), and packed in wheat bran for protection and food during transit They are packed securely in a priority mail (or similar) box. The porous nature of paper and cardboard packaging provides plenty of oxygen for insects; they do not require air holes in the boxes.
Shipping rates and destinations: We ship superworms ONLY to the lower 48 states, EXCEPT for Florida. Sorry, we do NOT ship internationally or to Hawaii or Alaska.
We ship via USPS Priority Mail. While not guaranteed, Priority packages usually arrive within 2-3 days once your order has shipped.
Live Guarantee Policy
We guarantee live delivery under normal weather conditions (en route temperatures between 40-80º). Any damage or DOA claims must be submitted via email within 24 hours of receipt of the package, accompanied by clear photos of the damage and packaging. We are not responsible for delays caused by the postal carrier or for any injury or damage to persons or property caused or thought to be caused by the insects we ship once they have left our facility.
We strongly advise that you have your packages held at your local post office for pickup during hot or cold weather to avoid exposing your superworms to the overly hot or cold conditions that can occur in a postal delivery truck or front porch. Please notify us if you wish us to mark your packages “hold at post office.”
Being located in upper Michigan, we will be shipping in cool weather much of the year. When temperatures are expected to dip below 40° F, we automatically include a heat pack with each order. In colder weather we also include foil lining in the box. We may at times suspend shipping temporarily due to extreme weather conditions. When this happens we will notify you of the delay via email.
