Please be aware that we DO NOT offer replacements or refunds on late or stolen packages. If you are ordering from a hot region in the United States, we recommend adding extra ice packs beyond the three 6 oz packs we already add. Expect a possible mix of wiggle spikes and pupae, as it is hot right now.
Blue Bottle Spikes can be fed to your jumping spider in the larvae stage, or pupated into flies. We have even seen some of our jumping spiders eat the brown pupae directly. There are three different stages of a Blue Bottle:
- Larvae (maggot or spike) are when they are still wiggling
- Pupae look like brown pellets, this indicates they are preparing for their final stage (which can take up to a month to hatch in very dry conditions)
- Blue Bottle Fly is the final adult stage
- Includes THREE 6OZ ice packs.
Because these are live feeders, we only ship them Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. We do not ship feeders internationally.
We do our best to send out non-pupated spikes, but there are many factors that impact their development and some may pupate before you receive them. To help increase the odds of un-pupated spikes, we highly encourage adding another ice pack to your order.

Spider food is sold by weight and the count can vary due to size variations among them. All counts are approximate. We do not guarantee the exact count of live food. We regularly adjust the weight of live food based on seasonal variations, and try our best to get an accurate approximate count.
