Wax worms are extremely sensitive to heat and humidity. Heat actually speeds up the life cycle of wax worms and gives them a shorter life span. Upon receiving your wax worms remove the lid and wipe any moisture you may find from the container. Place your wax worms in their original sealed container in a location that has low humidity and will stay between 55 and 65 degrees F. Your wax worms will not need food, they can live off of their own reserves for several weeks to a month if proper care is taken.
