I breed my own insects which are superworms, mealworms, silkworms, and crickets. I refuse to breed wax worms for a coupple of reasons. First, they are high in fat which if given to your pet as a staple food can cause health problems in the long run but given as a treat once in a while should be fine, and second because the will become a moth which DO fly so you would need very tight fitting lid but if you decide to breed them leave them at room temps [not in the fridge], and let nature take it’s course.
