Hornworm Chow Cooking Instruction

  • 8oz dry mix makes around 2.5lb cooked food.
  • 1lb dry mix makes around 5lb cooked food.

Fresh made high quality Hornworm Chow, vitamin enriched. 1 bag of chow(8oz) and makes around 2.5lb food cooked. 16oz dry mix makes about 5lb cooked food, which can feed about 80-90 worms to adulthood.


Avoid condensation inside the cup, water will promote bacteria and mold growth. Cups can be placed upside down for easy cleaning but don’t leave any worms on the lid, they might not be able to climb back up to the food. Cook 1 bag at a time, don’t cook more than what your worms can eat in a week or two, try to serve them fresh food, don’t pour more than 2″ thick of food into the cup.  If raising from eggs, 1/2″ food in each cup will last them a long time.
