Information

Housing

Morio worms should never be kept in refrigerators! We advise you to keep them in a smooth sided container (synthetic or glass). Minimum measures for approximately 2 kg of giant mealworms are circa 25 x 40 x 10 (l x w x h)

Temperature

They will remain in good condition and won’t pupate too quickly when stored between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius.

Nourishment

Bran or whole-wheat bread plus every other day a bit of apple or carrot. You can prevent fungus growth in the container by not giving them too much moisture rich food. Only give new food when the previous portion is finished.

A piece of advice for you insectivore's

We advice you to optimise the nutritional value of the giant mealworm by adding the calcium- and vitamin preparation AVES Mealworm food one day before consumption
