How They Ship
The Hornworms are young and approximately 1/2" when they are shipped out, so they will last longer for you. They will grow in transit, and will be larger when you receive them (especially in warm weather).
Please check to make sure your temperatures upon arrival will not be above 85F or below 20F as we are unable to do this for you.
How to Store
Store the pod upside down, with the food at the top. This way, the Hornworms will climb up to eat, and their waste will fall to the 'bottom' of the container for easy cleanup.
Make sure to place them on a wire rack or something similar, so that they receive proper ventilation.
Hornworms will grow the fastest when kept in the low 80s F, but can be kept as low as the mid 50s F to slow growth. Hornworms can also be kept in the fridge (at 45F) for 2 days, then removed for one day, to slow growth.
How to Feed
The Hornworms will have a healthy gutload food for them, so they will ready to be fed to your pets upon arrival.
You can also allow the worms to continue to grow.

I think that most people don’t read the directions because generally, the cups come with a minimum of 25 alive even when weather conditions are not ideal.
Having said that, my only issue with JF’s is that they don’t put enough food in the cup for all 25 to grow to their full size. Recently, they’ve had even less food in the cup than shipments one year ago. I feel bad when the remainder of the worms die of starvation or start eating each other! There aren’t many natural food sources in a mid-west climate to supplement in order to keep them alive. You basically need the brown goo that comes with them. As you can see in the 3rd picture I posted here, we’ve moved them from the cup to a big keeper and given various food to try and sustain them and so far nothing has worked which just results in death!
I’ve contacted Josh’s Frogs and they offer advice on purchasing additional food that you then have to make yourself which is quite tedious for worms you plan to feed your reptiles.
Bottom line, the worms aren’t cheap to begin with so for the price, I’d expect them to put sufficient food in the cup. I may need to look for another vendor otherwise.
It’s an easy fix and wouldn’t cut into their profits much to satisfy or improve their product. I think it’s a very reasonable request. Hopefully they will consider this option in order to keep customers such as myself.
Update: Bought a second one and this should be advertised as large horn worms. Not only did they arrive with no food left but half were dead and or starving to death. You people need to put more food in the comtainers. Not very good this time.
When I opened it, every single last one of the worms was dead upon arrival. I can't even give my dragon a single one of these. I understood there was a good chance that not every single one of them would make it, but to have EVERY ONE of them be dead is simply unacceptable.
I contacted the seller about a replacement and they sent out a new one in 2 business days, the process was very easy, they were nice about it and this time, only like one or two of them are dead. I'm fine with them being small since they will grow quickly. My lizard loves these.
