Add in any other fruit/veg that you are feeding to gut load your bugs
Keep in a suitable location
Use Calci dust to coat the livefood when feeding to your reptiles or add into a dish for specific species who have calcium as a supplement directly such as leopard geckos.
Bee pollen can be given to many species, The benefits to this supplement are amazing:
Pollen is great for increasing feeding response and appetite in fussy reptiles. It smells great which can help attract reluctant eaters and it gives amazing benefits as it’s rich in vitamins and minerals. Bee pollen contains natural antibiotics, naturally destroys bacteria and boosts the immune system. Our bee pollen is also organic 🍯
Can be sprinkled onto greens, used to gut loads insects, fed directly to reptiles, mixed in water, mixed into fruit pastes or mixed with calci dust for insects. It will go into a powder if pressed slightly.
Great little tub to keep livefood secure.
Can also use the tub to prep the bugs if you prefer by adding them in with the calci dust and give them a gentle shake to coat the livefood and then feed to reptiles if you have a larger amount of livefood stored somewhere else.
Tub can also be used to transport bugs, isopods or small reptiles.
