I had been trying to get Apollo to eat super worms for the past 4 or 5 days with no avail. today i brought home butter worms for him and he snatched them up without even thinking about it!
turns out i have a fussy eater on my hands!

Does anyone have any ideas on how to gut load wax worms as well as butter worms?
thanks!

Butter worms, there is no way. They will only eat the trevo bush, which is only located in Chile.

Wax worms you can. A mixture of honey, glycerine, brewer's yeast, dry milk, wheat germ, wheat bran, and oats does a good job of keeping them alive and is also a healthy gutload. If you toss in a couple old honeycombs, they will breed very well and produce good sized, healthy offspring. Otherwise.. the culture will die out after a couple, three generations.
