New Insect food for gut loading

nutrogrub insect food for gut loading contains nutrobal

Massive increase in insect calcium levels

Many of our clients wanted a complimentary product for alongside Nutrobal to aid in  'gut loading' feeder insects. This significantly improves the calcium levels in the insect alongside dusting - in turn improving the likelihood that the reptile will absorb the correct levels of mineral. After much work we successfully developed Nutrogrub, a single product which covers the needs of both groups (hoppers and mealworms).

NUTROGRUB is based on a fine vegetable flour enhanced with our world leading supplement NUTROBAL and its superfine calcium. This has been a roaring success and has resulted in increasing calcium levels in crickets by MORE THAN TENFOLD ie x 10, and in mealworms MORE THAN SEVEN FOLD ie x 7. The tests were carried out by an independent laboratory and impressed even us!

The protein level is low enough that mealworms won't mature too quickly but more than adequate for support of the feeder insects.

The insects are very variable in eating the vitamins although gut loading is very seful in increasing calcium levels, so to ensure that vitamin levels are adequate we still always recommend dusting them with Nutrobal as well just before feeding. Using Nutrobal on every feed is still recommended.

Avi-sol Vitamin solution - great for ex battery hens! -

 I've been using avi-sol vitamin supplement in my work re-homing ex battery hens. It's proven to be a valuable resource in supporting particularly weak and vulnerable hens through rehabilitation. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to help ex battery hens.
