Feeder Fly Ant Dusting


Although feeder fly ants are naturally high in vitamins and minerals, they can be dusted to even more increase their calcium (Ca) contents in addition to increasing their Ca:P ration. Feeder fly ant dusting is especially important where they have been stored (i.e. refrigeration) for a certain period of time. Fly ant dusting can be simply done by covering the insect with a suitable calcium supplementation. It can be done by throwing a bunch of these insects into a plastic bag or a small tub with a pinch or two of the supplement and by mixing / shaking the bag until the all the insects are covered.

When it is indicated that the insectivorous pet needs additional calcium supplementation, feeder fly ant dusting is indicated at least two to three times a week. This is especially important to growing and gravid animals as their physiological calcium needs are higher than the rest of their species.

It is important to note that although a suitable multivitamin powdered supplement is also necessary from time to time, that the main and most important supplement is Ca (or calcium / vitamin D3 combinations). The supplement being used must be suitable for the pet animal being supplemented.
