I am about to start feeding BSFL... so I gutload the same as if it was dubia right? Do you take them out of the container and the material in it?My staple is bsfl, they are voracious eaters!! Gutload with bee pollen, kale, almonds, carrots, I also gutload my crickets with the same, both are my staple feeders. I only use organic gutload, matt vanilla gorilla also sells gutload for feeders
Awesome thank you so much for all that info!!!Don't use almonds as a gutload!! I have my bsfl in coconut coir, I put the food on top inside the container, bsfl need to be kept in a sealed container, I use a medium size tupperware, after about 3 weeks or a month, it might start to smell, the larvae eat and poo just like silkworms or hornworms, it's just alot smaller but it smells, get a brick of coconut coir anywhere, I got a pound brick off ebay for $10.00+shipping and get a super fine cooking screen. To clean the smelly bsfl dump the container on the screen run lukewarm water over it, viola they are clean, I use the bsfl run off for fertilizer for plants, very nutritious for plants, keep bsfl damp, when you move them into new substrate, cut piece off brick, break up into small pieces to shreds put in container dampen with ro water put bsfl into it, if there are still some pieces of old substrate when put in new container, it's ok because it's clean, then put in gutload on top, then put lid on. I keep bsfl room temperature, I hope that helps
He has coccidiaSorry I haven’t answered. I take him to a specialty vet and I have treated him and cleaned his cage thoroughly. He’s on the right track. He started eating the good stuff again. 2 crickets and 6-8 roaches today. I have ordered some silk worms and we will try them as well.
