Questions & Answers

8 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.

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).

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.

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.

Buying In Bulk Better?

I got 1000 for my bearded dragons and geckos a good handful of the worms were dead had some cocoons as well which is not bad because the beetles with food can make more worms or be a tasty snack for your beaded dragon they love beetles and its satisfying to hear them crunch the main issue is are they fresh and fed? I can get these worms at a pet supermarket for $5.87 per 50 which is $58.7 for 500 if I buy them when I need them so if you're buying in bulk it should be a time saver and to make up for dead worms if its a common issue I would recommend them to add food with them like they do at my pet store to keep them alive and stay cool with the material so they don't heat up and die in shipments but overall good price I would be spending $117.4 for 1000 or more if I they only had 25 worm cups so this bulk is great for saving money that is if they are alive when you get them <3

Smaller than what expected. Not good quality.

My expectations for this product was high and low at the same time. Confusing right? The price was lower than what I paid in the past here on chewy, so, great deal. The reviews however made me a litte weary. My meal warms were received; I had about a little under thirty that were dead, size was definitely NOT what I was used to, as I thought I was buying medium, these were a mixture of small and medium. Thus, good for my little guy, Jon Snow, but not cost effective when feeding adult dragons. Which means that I’ll be placing another order soon. In the bag, there were a lot of shed. So sifting through that was annoying and they don’t look as healthy, these actually look like they will not make it a good week before they die. Sadly, another waste of money.
