What are mealworms?
Mealworms are the larval stage of Tenebrio molitor, a type of darkling beetle. These little "worms" have been popular feeders for decades, and can be offered as part of a varied diet to bearded dragons, leopard geckos, skinks, frogs, tarantulas, scorpions, birds, and other exotic pets!
Our pre-cupped option is great for hobbyists that want a convenient alternative to "boxed" or "bagged" feeders, and pet stores or resellers wanting a professional pre-packaged solution.
How often should mealworms be offered?
Mealworms can be used as a regular part of your pet's diet, preferably as part of a rotation with at least two other types of "staple" feeder insects.
Moisture — 61.9%
Protein — 18.7%
Fat — 13.4%

Mealworms should always be lightly dusted with calcium powder prior to feeding.
How to care for mealworms:
Mealworms should be kept chilled in a wine cooler or the top shelf of a refrigerator door between 42 and 50 degrees. They will become dormant and stay in perfect condition for up to 30 days.
