Insect Feeders are mainly used as a source of food for your reptile pets. For instance, lizards, frogs, and some snakes dine on insects. It can be a pain to go back and forth to the pet store to purchase insects for them to eat. An alternative to this is an insect feeder. You can purchase insects from online stores that specialize in reptiles or other animals that feed on bugs. Insect feeders can be ordered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Most reptiles eat crickets or some type of worm, such as the silkworm. These bugs are highly nutritious for most pet reptiles. Silkworms are excellent sources of calcium and protein, and make a great alternative to other common feeders. Silkworms, hornworms, painted lady butterflies, and crickets are usually available year round, and come in different sizes. You can also order them in specific quantities to meet your needs.
