Comment

On hot summer days it is standard practice to package mealworms in bags or per half kilo in a box.

Care

Housing

In case you do not keep them in the fridge, we advice you to keep the insects in a spacious synthetic / plastic crate or bucket with smooth edges: they will gnaw through the supplied cardboard packaging! Measurements circa 25 x 40 x 10 cm (l x w x h). It is better to keep the mealworms you store in the fridge, in a plastic container rather than in the original packaging. If you receive the mealworms in a bag also keep them in a container!

Temperature

Store as cool as possible, preferably in the fridge. Do not place in direct sunlight.

Nourishment

Bran or whole-wheat bread plus every other day some pieces of apple or carrot. You can prevent fungus growth in the container by not giving too much moisture rich food. Only add new food when the previous portion has been finished.

A piece of advice for you insectivore's

We advise you to optimise the nutritional value of the mealworms by adding the calcium- and vitamin preparation AVES Mealworm food, one day before consumption
