Insect Stock update 12/31/22
We experienced a devastating loss of 90%+ of our dubia roach operation Christmas weekend after a power failure during -10* temps. They're a large part of our business, and we're still figuring out how to salvage and rebuild what we spent the last 3 years investing in.
We do have a backstock of Bug Blocks, so those won't go out of stock immediately. But until we can build back up, we won't be able to offer more dried dubia, or live dubia. In the meantime, every purchase you make with us is extra appreciated as we deal with a large loss of income.
These Dried Dubia are a great choice for a light, crispy hedgie snack! We raise the dubia here on site, and dry them at a "medium" size for easy portions.
Why are dubia so much more expensive than the other insects?
In general, dubia roaches are pretty pricey as feeders - they grow slowly! They typically take 6-8 months to reach maturity, compared to other feeder insects which are often full grown within 1-3 months. If you were to purchase ~100 medium dubia (our small bottle size) as live feeders, you could expect to pay $20+. These ones have the same nutritional benefits, and are shelf stable!
We're striving to make feeding insects more accessible. We hope you enjoy offering a variety of different insects to your hedgie(s)!
