Waxworms (Galleria mellonella) are the larval form of the greater wax moth. They are also popular treats for a variety of pet invertebrates, amphibians, and reptiles.
Waxworms contain a moderate amount of protein, but they are very high in fat, so it's best to offer them occasionally as a nutritious treat. They do not have a balanced calcium to phosphorus ratio, so they must be dusted with a high-quality calcium powder before feeding.
