Soldier Grubs for sale
The Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens) is a common and widespread member of the family Stratiomyidae, and quite possibly the best-known species in the entire infraorder.
The larvae are sometimes sold as live pet food under the names Phoenix Worms and Soldier Grubs for owners of herps and tropical fish. They store high levels of calcium for future pupation which is beneficial to herps. Phoenix worms were first developed as a feeder species by Insect Science Resource.
The larvae range in size from 1/8 to 3/4 of an inch (3 to 19 millimeters). Although they can be stored at room temperature for several weeks, their longest shelf life is achieved at 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit (10 to 15 degrees Celsius).
