MEALWORM CARE:

Mealworms are easy to keep in a plastic container with small holes. We ship them to you with bran, which they use for bedding and food.

They are best kept in the fridge and will live happily there for a number of weeks. They slow down considerably when kept in the fridge, but still need to be fed. About every two weeks add a few small pieces of carrot which they will eat and use as a source of moisture.

If left out of the fridge the worms will begin to pupate and are much less palatable.

Mealworms should be considered a "treat food" as they are high in fat and have a hard exoskeleton that can cause issues with some animals. They are a good addition as part of a well-balanced diet.

What reptiles eat mealworms?
Mealworms are a great food for lizards and are a favourite of Bearded Dragons, frogs, turtles and amphibians, spiders and scorpions, fish, birds including insectivores, magpies, finches and chooks will love you for them too.
