Caring for wax worms
When wax worms arrive they don’t require any further feeding, they are at the stage where they are surviving off their body fat before they turn to moths. They are best kept in the tub that they arrive. When kept at room temperature they will start to turn to moths after about 2 weeks, if you keep them in a fridge this slows down the process so they will last 3-4 weeks.
