Soldier Worms, the live larvae of the black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens), are a naturally nutritious, protein-packed, calcium-rich treat for your pet. Their balanced Calcium to Phosphorus ratio is ideal for reptiles (without the need for dusting), and can help prevent Metabolic Bone Disease. They also contain natural antimicrobial properties that may help boost your pet’s immunity. While most flies are considered pests, BSF are actually beneficial to the environment as very efficient decomposers of organic waste and a sustainable source of high-quality protein.

Live Delivery Guarantee Winter
 
Fluker Farms guarantees live delivery when temperatures are as low as 16 degrees at the destination and/or regional sort facilities during estimated transit times. While most insect growers simply refuse to ship at temperatures below this threshold, Fluker Farms recognizes how much you rely on live insect for your pet’s nourishment and feel you should have a choice in the matter. Therefore, we provide the following options when the weather drops to 0-15 degrees (we will not ship to any areas below 0 degrees). 

1) Ship Without Guarantee (SWG)-You can choose to have your insects shipped when the night time temperatures are between 0-15 degrees by selecting the SWG option, however, we cannot guarantee live delivery and NO REFUND will be given for insects that do not arrive alive. 
 
2) Hold For Weather (HFW)-If you choose the HFW option, your order may be held up to 7 days while we wait on improved shipping conditions. If after 7 days the weather doesn’t improve enough for your order to be shipped, it will be cancelled and any charges refunded. 
 
SHIPPING INFORMATION

For your convenience we offer a variety of shipping methods from Fedex and the United States Postal Service. Please choose the method that is best suited for the conditions in your area. Keep in mind that although Fluker Farms will replace any insects that do not arrive alive (subject to the extreme weather policy outlined above), Fluker Farms DOES NOT guarantee any shipping charges. All shipping charges are final and non refundable. Please inspect your packages upon delivery and contact us immediately with any problems. All live insect claims must be made within 2 business days of delivery. To request a claim, please fill out our credit request form. All claims will be processed within 2 business days.

Go to Shipping Advisory to see if there are any weather advisories for your area. States listed in red currently have night-time temperatures of 15 degrees (F) or below: If you have any questions or concerns related to your state or our shipping policy please feel free to contact us or call (800) 735-8537.

Which shipping method should I choose?
We offer a wide variety of options for shipping your live insects. Using the chart above as reference, our customers can choose which shipping service will work best for them. It is important to take into account that transit times vary greatly between the different options. USPS First Class Mail can take up to 7 business days and Fedex Overnight is a one business day in transit service. What works well for some customers will not always work well for others. If it is during the hot summer months or cold winter months we recommend not using USPS First Class Mail because it is the slowest option and increases the risk of receiving your insects DOA. Make sure to check the weather, carefully taking into account transit time and places that your package will travel through. Also important to consider is the price between the shipping methods: USPS First Class Mail is the cheapest, Fedex Priority Overnight is the most expensive with many options in between. We try to provide as much information as possible but it is ultimately up to the customer to make the best choice based on weather and the quality of delivery services available to your area.

    Black Soilder Fly Larvae

    Posted by Cali on Nov 9th 2018

    Such a great purchase! I buy 1000 every 2 weeks for my bearded dragon and they love them! They are shipped quickly, come the right size and in good packaging, the larvae are easy to care for and to feed to the beardies. No care is needed for the larvae, only thing is that they do turn into black soilder flies in a few weeks if you don’t feed them all fast enough. But this is definitely the best place to purchase black soilder fly larvae from!

    Inconsistent

    Posted by Lindsay Schwartz on Sep 25th 2018

    My first few orders were great and had appropriately sized larvae, however, I've noticed a decrease in quality and size with my most recent purchases. It's a shame because these are the most affordable BSFL on the market and my beardie loves them but I'm considering looking elsewhere because the Large size product doesn't live up to its name.

    Good- But don't last long

    Posted by Corey on Aug 21st 2018

    I bought these soldier fly larvae to supplement my geckos while they were laying eggs because they are rich in calcium. They arrived healthy and alive. I placed them in the fridge and within 2 weeks they were all dead. It's not Fluker's fault but they just aren't as easy to keep as mealworms.

    Great deal!

    This is the best place to order pheonix worms from! They are a fantastic deal, they always show up alive and healthy.

    SIZE!

    Posted by Madeline Lathrop on Sep 26th 2017

    I ordered two different sizes and both times they were the same! My second order was the larger order but only a few of the larvae seems to be close to 1/2", many looked like the one from my small order! I noticed the lid was marked small and relabeled not sure if that's the norm but I'm disappointed. The shipping is great, but the product consistency is questionable. Hopefully they will make it right. Our beardie ignores the tiny worms! :(

    BSFL

    Posted by Stephen Brinson on Jun 21st 2017

    What can one say about BSFL. It is a grub. What I can say is that my order went exactly as I expected. Better actually. I received my order faster then expected. All the larva where happy and healthy when they arrived. Well I guess they where, how can one tell if a larva is happy.

    These things are eating machines. I am having trouble supplying them enough food. I ordered 3000 and have an active wild population. What I have noticed is that they do not eat the skins of produce. They leave a paper thin layer of skin behind.
    These things are amazing.
    One more thing. The price at Fluker's is the best I have found by a lot, around 50% lower.
