A wide range for multiple purposes

Our range includes adult insects such as Grasshoppers, Crickets, Water Fleas and Water Flies plus Mealworms, Silkworms, Fly Larvae and Mosquito Larvae too. They are sourced from biological stock and are dried with processes proven to preserve nutrients. This means that they keep a large percentage of their original protein content.

Dried Insects are ideal for a variety of different pets. It is a healthy way to include vital protein in the diet of ornamental and pond fish, reptiles and birds, and even mammals, rodents or dogs too.

Protein is one of life’s building blocks

Protein found in dried insects and their larvae protects the body’s own defences from micro-organisms, is taken and used in organism transport and signal functions and also supports building collagen. Additionally, proteins ensure that muscles and nerves are sufficiently energised, meaning pets can respond appropriately to external stimuli.

However, protein can only play this valuable role in maintaining health and quality of life when it comes from a traceable source and is treated as naturally as possible. As a wholesaler with a focus on gently treated raw materials, we’re offering you the highest-quality of protein suppliers – Dried Insects.
