Klug’s Velvet Ant


Out of stock


Klug’s Velvet Ants is Dasymutilla klugii. This is one of the largest velvet ant species among the hundreds of species native to the United States. Limit one per customer, sorry.

Disclaimer- They are wingless female wasps with a very powerful sting. Buyer beware! If you have an allergy to bee stings, we encourage you not to buy this pet insect. Rumor has it that stings from these insects are significantly more painful than stings from honeybees, for example.

These can climb glass or plastic so a well-fitting lid with smaller ventilation holes should be used. They do like a dry tank and like to eat sugary liquids. We offer them beetle jellies (see related products, below).

These make wonderful communal tankmates with blue death-feigning beetles, ironclads and darkling beetles (see related links below).
