Mazuri® Better Bug® Gut Loading Diet is formulated to contain a high level of calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin A precursors for crickets and other feeder insects which are intended to be used in the diets of other animals.

    • Feed to crickets or other feeder insects free-choice for 24-72 hours. No additional supplementation is needed.
    • When this diet is consumed, the total body calcium of feeder insects is increased, resulting in a higher level of calcium being delivered to reptiles and other animals that eat them.
    • Fresh water should be available to insects at all times.

    • Odum, R.A., Bekker, K., Turski, P., Chastain, J., Paramuk, J., Pessier, A.P., Berlinski, R., Hanley, C., Hornyak, V., Herman, T., Mendelson, J.R. - Hypovitaminosis A: Are captive-bred insect prey deficient in usable vitamin A for Anaxyrus (Anura-Bufonidae)
      • Gut loading diets of produce or fortified with fish oil and spirulina, as in Mazuri® Better Bug® Gut Loading Diet, fed to crickets produced significantly higher levels of vitamin A in the livers of the studied toads, while the control animals fed crickets gut-loaded with the commonly used high calcium diet had minimal, and in some case undetectable, levels of vitamin A.
      • The cricket colonies maintained on the Produce diet had a tendency to become infested with fruit flies and required additional cleaning and maintenance.
