Want to learn more? Explore our commonly asked questions about our delicious and sustainably made, natural cat treats.
What are Bug Bites™?
Bug Bites™ are all-natural, tasty cat treats that kitties love. Made with renewable ingredients, Bug Bites™ are sustainably sourced and artisanally made to crunchy perfection.
What's in them?
Bug Bites™ contain the following ingredients:
Black soldier fly larvae
Hydrolyzed yeast protein
Canola oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols)
Why black soldier fly larvae?
Using a unique and sustainable cultivation process, dried black soldier fly larvae (well-known for their nutritional properties) are grown under controlled conditions.
The larvae feed off of unconsumed fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste. Then, the larvae are dried and mixed with essential amino acids and minerals to offer a nutritional daily diet.
Are there any health benefits?
Black soldier fly larvae give cats an abundance of dietary benefits — far more than those found in beef and chicken. Bug Bites™ contain no growth hormones or cheap fillers. They’re made with zero waste and taste delicious!
