Bulk Mealworms

Unit price  per 

Mealworms (Tenebrio molitor)

Packed in a calico bag - Feed to your flock or transfer to bulk insect housing immediately after arrival

Regular Mealworms are approximately 2-2.5cm long

Plump, nutrient rich mealworms are a valuable food for all poultry and greatly improve egg-quality in domestic chickens. Mealworms are a natural insect food providing protein, vitamins and minerals for insectivorous and seed-eating birds; especially during breeding, egg-laying, and feather re-growth after moulting. 

Chickens and other birds are enriched by the experience of searching or foraging for insects in their environment. You can enhance their lives by providing a range of live insects to eat. 

Mealworms are enjoyed by lizards, bearded dragons, blue tongue lizards, spiders, scorpions, frogs, birds, large fish, turtles, poultry, game show contestants and many other animals.

Our Mealworms have been relied on by zoos, wildlife sanctuaries, breeders, vets, animal rescuers and families for over 30 years.

Mealworms are clean and easily handled. They can be a valuable addition to many animals diets and also used as treats and training rewards.

Some gardeners believe that feeding wild-birds and wild lizards in their yard, naturally encourages insect foraging behavior to keep the garden clear of pests. Small quantities of mealworms are a natural treat for visiting wildlife and far superior to mince or raw meat. It is best not to make wild animals completely dependent on offered food.

How to feed
Feed mealworms straight from the container or transfer them to a Komodo Smart LiveFood Dish or Komodo Mealworm Dish or glass bowl with slippery sides to prevent their escape.

Bulk Packs of Pisces Mealworms will need to be transferred as soon as possible to a large plastic container. Add extra wheat bran as necessary and feed with sliced carrots.

For longer storage place in the crisper of a refrigerator. Every few weeks they should be allowed to come to room temperature and fed with fresh wheat bran and carrot slices before they are re-chilled.

Please take care when unpacking your Insects. Sometimes other insects decide to enjoy life in our insect grow-rooms. Whilst every care is taken to ensure that no hitchhikers are present in our LiveFood products, sometimes other species will be present. Feel free to contact us if you would like an identification.
