The Galleria mellonella, also known as the "waxworm" or "honey worm", is a yellow holometabolous insect in the larval butterfly phase.
Its size ranges from 2 to 3 cm and it can stay in this phase for 1 to 6 months.
It is packaged in a plastic box containing between 40 and 45 medium-sized pieces on a natural soil base.
This species, found worldwide but restricted to very cold areas, lives as a parasite in bee colonies. The moths lay their eggs in the panels and the maggots grow by feeding on the beeswax.
It is a popular bait for any fishing technique.
Available all year round, but may be subject to shortages due to inclement weather.
All worms can have a loss of 40 % of their original weight, according to species.
