Raising Wax Worms

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Wormdunker69, Sep 26, 2008.

  1. I am raising wax worms and it says to use sap less saw dust. I presume that this means using hard wood saw dust. Any help is appreciated and thanks for your response.

  5. I was picking up some old bee hives, The farmer came out and told me that waxworms have gotten to his hive. I took out the old comb and put them in a small tupaware container. I have around 50 babey waxworms, and more are hatching every day. I would say I have around 5,000+ eggs in the comb right now.

  7. wormdunker.......you might find an answer talking with a local bait shop that sells waxies or a pet shop that handles them as pet food. Some shops carry wood shavings for hamster bedding...that may work.

    Not much of a wood person but wouldn't any well cured, dried piece of wood give you sapless sawdust?

    I'll check out the pet shops and see what they say, thanks!

    Sorry that I didn't get back to you sooner, was pouring some #10 hook jigs to paint and tie for steelies.
