Questions & Answers

6 Customer Questions


Can these reproduce for farming?
Answer by ChewyApr 29, 2021
These meal worms can be bred and raised. You can start with as few as 150 live mealworms, but it is recommended starting off with at least 500.

How long can they be stored?
Answer by ChewyAug 13, 2021
Upon arrival, transfer the worms from the bag to a breathable smooth-sided storage container and place in the refrigerator. Meal worms will last approximately 4 weeks refrigerated.

why did i receive babies?
Answer by ChewyOct 17, 2021
The duration of the life cycle will depend on the temperature the mealworms are stored. If all goes well, you should have mealworms to use as feeders within about 3 months. The mealworm will stay in the larvae stage for about 4-6 weeks. The duration of the pupa stage usually lasts around 1-3 weeks. Once the pupa turns into an adult beetle it will reproduce and lay eggs until the life cycle ends and the beetle dies. With this being stated, mealworms are constantly growing in size due to being in the larva stage. Colder temperatures will help to prolong the larva from turning into Pupa.

what do I feed them
Answer by ChewyAug 27, 2021
Add about ½ cup of fresh (raw) vegetables to your mealworm storage container for feeding. Cut raw potatoes and raw carrots into 1 inch x 3 inches pieces and spread throughout the container for the mealworms. The mealworms may pull the food under the bedding to eat it, which is completely normal. Some moisture is necessary for the mealworms to drink. While the raw vegetables contain some moisture, it is best to add more by using Thirsty Cricket (gel water source). To gut load, mix Mealworm Chow in with the Mealworm Keeper at a 1:9 ratio (1/3 cup of Chow per 3 cups Keeper).

Our lizards love these things!

Down here in South Fla we all kinds of exotic species of reptiles in our yard. I use these mealworms to hand feed a 10” female African Redhead Agama that hangs out on the front porch, I give her about a dozen a day. The worms have survived much longer than I ever expected them to

Mealworms-no feed

It was great getting the meal worms. What I did not realize was they would not have any feed for them. It left us scrambling a little bit in order to them them fed. We had quite a few die on the cucumbers we gave them temporarily. Not sure what else we could have done. Food for the worms should be included. We stored them in the fridge when we did not need them.

My lanai lizards are very happy.

I received my Mealworms in good condition. The order was handled in a timely fashion as always. Chewy has it together. The Mealworms are for my Lanai lizards who actually come out & beg for food.

Fast and Secure

I usually wait until my 'Beardie's" food is almost out before ordering more, mainly due to storage issues. I got the mealworms delivered fast, and they were packaged perfectly to minimize spillage.

Not what I expected

There is no size stated on add, they were tiny. Most of them dead from the delay in shipping. After the purchase was made it said would arrive in 3 days, 7 days later I get them. They were crumpled up in newspaper then stuffed in a bag. I saw the bag on the add but I didn’t think they would just be loose in it. Made a huge mess trying to get them out. I have been buying mealworms for quite some time now, this was not at all what I expected.

Fresh and lively

The mealworms I ordered came in at the exact time they were supposed to, the packaging was perfect as always, and they were the exact right size of worm I needed!

I don't recommend this product

Most all were dead, was hopeful they would survive. Unfortunately I paid for dead worms. Mine and my bearded dragons loss.

Live meal worms

I personally didn’t try them so I can’t vouch for the taste. They were living when they arrived and our birds took right to them and have continued to devour them. So based on that I give them a five star rating
