Care and Storage
1 Pod of Hornworms:
Keep the habitat with the cup upside down on a screen or grate so the worms get fresh air. If you'd like your worms to grow larger, keep them at 82°. Keep them at 55° to slow their metabolism when they're at the desired size (a wine cooler works great for this).
Hornworms will double in size when kept at warmer temperatures. If you feel your worms are too small, place them in a warm location (next to a reptile bulb for example) and they will grow extremely quickly for you!
Shake out the little yellow 'kernels', these are the droppings and will build up quickly.
100 Large Phoenix Worms:
Phoenix Worms can be stored in their shipping cup and can tolerate high temperatures but will have the best shelf life when stored at 50 to 60 degrees F.
A wine cooler or basement are great storage places but setting the cups near an A/C vent will work just fine. If you have a warmer spot in your fridge like the butter tray, this is often the perfect temperature.
Although it's possible to "hold" worms for months when stored at 50 degrees, you should only order the number of worms that will be fed off within 3 weeks so your animal will have fresh food.
It is normal for Butterworms to form a doughnut shaped nest during shipping. Gently pull apart the nest to find your worms inside.
It is imperative that Butterworms be kept dry. They will die when exposed to moisture. Keep them between 40 and 50° to slow their metabolism and keep them in a state of hibernation. Do not feed Butterworms to your pets if you notice mold growing in the bedding.
Waxworms will last one to two weeks at room temperature. They can be kept cool at 60 degrees, where they become dormant and will last up to 8 weeks - but must not be any colder than 55°.
They are ideally kept in a wine cooler, butter tray in the refrigerator, or in a cellar. They must be stored in low humidity. If the bedding feels moist when they arrive, leave the lids off to let them dry out.
Daily remove any dead worms (they will be black) and remove the cocoons of any that are spinning one.
