MoriFeeders Hornworm Chow is a great way to store your chow for longer periods of use. When you need it, just pull some out, mix with water, microwave and let cool.  Whether you have just a few cups of hornworms to feed or a full-blown colony with thousands of worms to feed, that's all you need to do to have hornworm chow ready to feed!

Microwave Mixing and cooking instructions (1100W):

  1. Mix 6 cups boiling water into 1 pound of dry chow, making sure no dry chow is left.
  2. Place into microwave and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  3. CAREFULLY remove and mix completely. Food and steam are VERY HOT!!!
  4. Place into microwave again and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  5. CAREFULLY remove and mix completely. Food and steam are VERY HOT!!!
  6. Pour into final container and store for up to 1 week.

Adjust these to accommodate lower-powered microwaves. The key is to get the entire mixture as close to boiling as possible. Mixing multiple times helps get an even mixture.

What's so great about our Hornworm Chow?

We have designed our chow such that:

  • Hornworms eating it will produce darker, more dry poops
  • Dryer poop means it's easier to clean out daily
  • Dryer poop means less chance of mold if the cup is cleaned appropriately
  • For your colony: Worms are MUCH healthier and produce LARGER pupae on average.
  • For your colony: Larger pupae will produce more eggs!
