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.

During the winter months, we recommend checking our shipping information page before ordering any live insects. Cold temperatures can greatly impact the odds of receiving them live and healthy. See our Live Delivery Guarantee before placing your order.

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. 

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.

    I've ordered these several times and they come in a little cup with a dirt medium. The second I open the cup I can see the soil moving - alive and healthy! My beardies LOVE them and they're great for babies and gravid females (of which we have both!) I was worried the first time I ordered them that they were dying - they were all turning black. Turns out that's just them pupating and they stop moving at that time. It's safe to assume they're all alive and you can still use them. Stick them in a plastic bucket for a few weeks in warm temps and you'll get flies! Our babies love to chase around the flies in their tanks.

    Excellent but...

    I ordered 500 and I can tell you that is not the amount that was received. Still, I understand getting the right amount by weight or whatever method you use is difficult, so I will continue to order. I don't know why I wasn't purchasing these before. The beardies love them!

    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!

    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.
