Grasshoppers (Locusta migratoria manilensis) are also known as locusts, and they're very popular in Europe as a nutritious feeder insect for reptiles. Grasshoppers are high in protein and low in fat, and are even a natural source of red carotene.
Given that locusts are illegal to use as live feeders in the United States, ProBugs offers a completely legal solution: ProBugs Grasshoppers are vacuum-sealed to preserve all the moisture and flavor of live feeders, with all the convenience of a prepared diet. It's the perfect thing to have on hand in case of emergency, for a pet-sitter to use when you're out of town, or simply to increase variety in your reptile's diet.
All ProBugs Eco Fresh products are organic, farm-raised whole insects processed in clean FDA certified facilities. Eco-Fresh Pro Bugs are free of bacteria and parasites, which are a problem with live feeders. Pro Bugs are easy to transport and store. No need to keep live insects in your home or worry about traveling with live feeders.
Each pouch contains 8 grasshoppers.
