EarthPro InsectFuel in the 50gram pouch is a potent and highly effective insect food supplement. This food can be used to fill feeder insects of all species full of goodness that can then be passed onto the predator. It is based on UK grown Alfalfa which is highly palatable to insects.
We have also included full spectrum vitamins and minerals, Bee pollen and a high potency marine carotenoid to provide vitamin A in a safe and regulated way.
InsectFuel is packed with goodness and has Zero Phytic acid which is common to bran based diets.
NOTE: Arcadia Insect Fuel is Highly Concentrated.
Much more so than many other so called insect supplements which can be just grain or bran with only a dash of cheap vitamins.
The 50 gram pouch contains as much concentrated nutrient additive as 5 - 10 times as much of competing gut loads. So feel free to mix in with or sprinkle on any base foods you are using.
InsectFuel can be used by itself or mixed in with the diet you are using in a 2 to 1 or 3 to 1 ratio. Mix with cricket mash, rolled oats, turkey mash, etc. Can be used to dust fresh (insecticide free / organic) vegetables. Then change out uneaten vegetables from insect container daily to prevent spoilage. This is a great way to load up with fresh vegetables. Sprinkle in mealworm containers.
(I have even mixed it into fruit fly media with great results! .25 teaspoon to fruit fly conatiner. TCG )
One ingredient in InsectFuel that is fantastic is Bee Pollen, a supplement that is naturally occurring in the diet of most reptiles and many amphibians.... but almost always missing in captive diets.
Herbivorous reptiles ingest pollen in the plants and flowers they eat. Insectivorous and carnivorous get it either gut loaded in the prey items they eat or on the preys bodies.
Bee pollen naturally has the following nutrients:
Vitamins: Provitamin A, B-1 Thiamin, B-2 Riboflavin, B-3 Nancin, B-5, B-6 Pyridoxine, B-12 (cyanocobalamine), Pantothenic acid, Vitamin C, F, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin H, Vitamin K, Vitamin PP, Folic Acid, Choline, Inositol, Rutin.
Minerals: Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Iron, Copper, Iodine, Zinc, Sulfur, Sodium, Chlorine, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Selenium, Boron, Silica, and Titanium.
Other: Amino Acid, Carbohydrates, Fatty Acids, Enzymes & Co-Enzymes, Fats.
Bee Pollen contains at least 22 amino acids, 18 vitamins, 25 minerals, 59 trace elements, 11 enzymes or co-enzymes, 14 fatty acids, 11 carbohydrates and approximately 25 % protein. Bee pollen is extremely rich in carotenes, which are metabolic precursors of vitamin A. It is also high In B complex and vitamins C, D, E and Lecithin.
Can be used with all feeder insects and pet species. Can also be used as a dietary supplement for herbivorous species.
This can be dusted on greens and vegetables fed to reptiles too!
We HIGHLY recommend this product. Contains many wild micro-nutrients and minerals that can be gut loaded into your crickets, mealworms, roaches.
