Wombaroo Insect Booster

Notify Me When Available
WOMBAROO INSECT BOOSTER (previously known as Passwell Insect Booster) is a nutrient enhanced insect food and a complete diet for insects fed to captive reptiles, animals and birds. Nutrients are incorporated into the insects' body tissue to improve their nutritional value.


Insectivorous species kept in captivity usually lack the diversity and quality of a natural diet in the wild. Feeder insects are often maintained on nutrient-poor substrates (eg bran), which can lead to dietary deficiencies. Insects have no skeletal structure and are therefore a poor source of calcium.


By maintaining the live feeder insects on Insect Booster, the nutritional value of the captive diet is significantly enhanced. This provides a means of supplying essential amino acids, essential fatty acids (omega 3 & 6), vitamins, minerals and colour-enhancing carotenoids. Supplying nutritionally improved feeder insects maintained on Insect Booster is more effective than simply "gut-loading" insects raised on inadequate diets.

Test Results after using Insect Booster showed that calcium levels and the calcium to phosphorus ratio were significantly improved. This is a more effective method of supplying calcium than dusting insects with calcium powder. The levels of other minerals, vitamins and colour-enhancing carotenoids were also significantly improved.


For best results, supply insect booster to the feeder insects for at least 14 days prior to feeding animals. Moisture should always be available to insects and can be supplied as a piece of wet sponge, fruit or vegetable.

Adult Insects (crickets & woodies): Supply Insect Booster as a dry powder in a shallow bowl or plate. Insect Booster is a complete diet and does not require other foods to be added.

Juvenile Insects (mealworms & fly pupae): Make a 50:50 mixture of Insect Booster with bran and supply as the substrate in which the pupae live.

Ingredients: Pollard, whey & soy proteins, methionine, vegetable oils, omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals & carotenoids.

SIZES: Available in 300g & 5kg.

Great for raising fat mealworms for feeding to birds. Excellent product.


Find it very easy to use a spoon full every few days crickets love it

Wouldn't be without it

I rehab and raise sick, injured and/or orphaned Microbats (along with other species) and wouldnt be without this product - I feed up my mealworms on this and then feed them to my bats.
