Butterworms are most well known for their usefulness as fishing bait, although, they are also highly valued as a reptile feeder species. In fact, they are great as a feeder insect particularly due to their bright color and attractive scent that makes them a tempting snack to even some of the more stubborn pets. The allure of this species is that they are quite mysterious – very little is known about this insect, given that they are raised successfully only in Chile (the country they are native to). Essentially, any time they are used elsewhere, whether as fishing bait or reptile food, they are an imported product.
