bro, Phoenix worms are black soldier fly larvae
I was told they are quite good for bearded dragons , and been reading they are quite nuitritious and high in caLCIUM TOO hard to find good supplier of superworm here lately
Hermetia illucens, the black soldier fly, is a common and widespread fly of the family Stratiomyidae. Unlike many fly species neither the larvae nor adults are considered pests or vectors. Instead, black soldier fly larvae play a similar role to that of redworms as essential decomposers in breaking down organic substrates and returning nutrients to the soil/environment.

Black soldier fly larvae (BSFL), are an excellent source of sustainable protein for aqua culture/ animal feed, pet and human nutrition. As the larvae have voracious appetites they can be used for composting household food scraps and agricultural waste products.

Is it available in LFS now?

What's the price like, for how many or it is counted by weight?

I presume it is live, right?
