super worms or xx worms you speek of are OK as a diet but have a very high fat content and hard shell, feeding only this will give you a fat reptile over a few months. injecting antibiotic into them doesnt kill them instantly maybe 5 min. you have to be carefull on the amount or else it'll creat to much pressure and pop. yuck.on a super worm there isnt room to expand. on a cricket there is more so, less of a hard shell.

dont feed king worms, they are meal worms that have ingested a hormone to keep them in a worm form and grow. meal worms always turn into beetles if kept out of the fridge. super worms will not do this unless still,quite, and dark. so if you leave them in a , letts say litter pan with flukers meal worm diet, they will last for as long as you have provided them with a slice of apple or potato or carrot for moisture.

roaches are also a good food sorce, you can buy alot of them. leave them in a tank with an under tank heater. spray them weekly. and give them cricket food and water sorce, they give live birth so no worry of egg incubation
check nwworms.com for list of those buggers

when fall arives you should try silk worms. they require you to wash your hands since they dont have an imune system but once you get the hang of it, reptiles will eat them like candy. down side to feeding high quantities of silks, you gete runny poo cuz they are so high in moisture. but they are also abotu 67% protien!!!

crickets, roaches, silk worms, super worms, all great items
