Winter time is fast approaching here in Kansas and in many parts of the U.S. That means beautiful snow, hot chocolate, and curling up with a blanket in a nice warm bed. It also means that if you are accustomed to having your chameleons’ feeder insects delivered to your door, you may want to start looking at a Plan B as winter gets here. Most feeder insect suppliers will only guarantee live arrival within certain temperatures, which is completely understandable.
If you are lucky enough to have a reliable and fairly priced local supplier that is a fantastic alternative. However, if your feeders are only available through the mail, you may want to look into setting up a breeding operation for superworms, Dubia roaches, crickets, or all of the above. You can even order silk worm eggs and hatch them out yourself.
If you are going to have a clutch of chameleons hatch soon remember to think about where you will get ahold of fruit flies and pinhead crickets this time of year. You may need to order a culture now and get it started to have some available for your little guys to eat when they hatch.
