What is Insect Boost - Drink Me?

This scientifically formulated gel provides a solid form of moisture to hydrate insects with minimal mess and with no risk of drowning. If feeder insects drown in a water dish, dangerous levels of harmful bacteria will flourish quickly in the liquid; contaminating the water source of the remaining insects. Drink Me gel remains in its gelatinous form until consumed by the insect, meaning no more drowning and bacteria spikes. 

The benefits of Insect Boost - Drink Me

It is our firm belief that ‘a healthy outside starts on the inside’ for exotic pets, and we suggest offering ‘Drink Me’ in conjunction with ‘Eat Me’ food for the perfect gut loading combination. We recommend both gut loading and hydrating your feeder insects for at least 24 hours prior to offering as prey. Dehydrated insects will not absorb nutrients as easily, become weak, lethargic and die off prematurely. By hydrating effectively, you ensure that maximum nutrition is being transferred from your feeder insects to your reptile, amphibian or arachnids; and you will not need to replace feeders lost to dehydration as often.

This gel is also safe for ‘pet’ invertebrates such as Millipedes, Cockroaches, Mantis and Stick Insects. We advise against using this for Tarantulas and other arachnids due to the way in which they drink fluids.

  • Scientifically formulated, hydrating water gel.
  • Palatable for a wide variety of invertebrates.
  • Hygienic and minimises harmful bacteria buildup.
  • Lower insect mortality rates, resulting in less waste.*

How to use Insect Boost - Drink Me

This product is easy to use and comes in a convenient, hygienic, resealable pouch.

  1. Place in a shallow dish, easily accessible to insects.
  2. Replace as required or if the gel becomes soiled.
  3. For maximum absorption of nutrients, offer ‘Drink Me’ in conjunction with a dish of ‘Eat Me’ food, to aid hydration and gut load 24 hours before offering as prey.
  4. Keep pouch sealed when not in use and store in a cool, dark place.
