As woodies are highly active, they trigger a positive feed response in pets that are motivated to feed by movement. 

Woodies are a clean, natural and nutritious option as a staple feeder insect in your pet's diet. 

You can feed our insects to your pet:

  • frogs
  • geckos
  • insect-eating birds
  • lizards
  • predatory fish
  • scorpions and spiders
  • turtles; and
  • wildlife

to provide variety in their diet.

Offering your pet various feeder insects promotes better overall health through a more balanced and nutrient-rich diet.

food in its natural state
provides the best source of nutrition

Woodies do not have an adequate calcium:phosphorous ratio for many animals and may require additional calcium before feeding to your pet. 

You can achieve a higher calcium content by:

  • dusting your insects immediately before offering to your pet; or 
  • adding the calcium powder to a gutload supplement fed to your insects. 

Note: woodies are also commonly referred to as speckled feeder roaches and lobster roaches.
