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.

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).

The Guessing Jar

Just like guessing the number of M&Ms in the jar at school. I am willing to bet there were not 500 mealworms in my order. However the worms I got were plump and eagerly eaten by my chickens. The value proposition for this product is not good.

Great live food

The mealworms arrived timely and healthy. I really like the eco-friendly bag and recycled packaging inside. I will continue to purchase from this vendor.

Just was not happy with this....my meal worms were so very tiny and I thought they'd be larger.

I have two jumping spiders and these are the perfect size for them. They'll last us a good while.

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
