SINCE 1981!

This is not a decision that I have taken lightly, as the only commercial breeder in England, I have been left with no choice but to stop selling mealworms, so that the worm production can catch up and be taken off at the right sizes. I have also been unable to purchase any from our European counterparts as they are having problems too.

During the last five weeks, we have had many problems, some through human error which has devastated three weeks of production, which in turn depleted our refrigerated stock within 14 days. The increase in sales due to other companies not having stock, which has caused problems, we have had to take off worms that should normally have been taken off for sales nearly a week later.

There are three species of crickets and locust available if you need to feed your animals.

I'm sorry for the problems that this may cause you all.

Reptile Accessories & Food

Pet Reptiles need to live as close as possible as they would in their natural environment.  This means that specific living conditions need to be provided.  Most importantly, heating that is controlled within specific temperature ranges, lighting to provide sufficient UV, and adequate humidty.  They also need suitable substrate, somewhere to sleep, places to hide, things to climb and sit on, dishes for food and water.

Reptiles should eat a diet similar to what they would eat in the wild.  Reptile food must provide adequate nutrition, and supplements should be ised to help ensure they get all the nutrients they need.  Dried reptile food can be very convenient to use as part of a balanced diet.

It is also a good idea to have temporary housing for any trips to the vets.
