It is vital that we feed our pet reptiles a diet that is rich in nutrients. They say ‘you are what you eat’ and it also applies to reptiles! We can only be sure of doing this if we properly feed and hydrate their live food properly.
Always keep your feeder insects in a well-ventilated tub with food and water. Insects benefit from a heat lamp and are better able to take up nutrients from the food. Arcadia Reptile Insect Fuel can be mixed with warm water and allowed to cool to form into a paste. This is great for nourishing and hydrating your feeder insects at the same time without causing spillages. Alternatively, you can feed it dry as long as you provide a separate source of hydration. Feeder insects can be kept hydrated by placing pieces of vegetable with them, such as carrot or potato. Alternatively, you can place some cotton wool in a bowl and keep damp. This is a better alternative to using a dish of water, as it can easily tip over and spill water around your insects, which can kill them.
