The Worm Lady - Mealworms

Mealworm | High-Protein live feeder with A long shelf life

Mealworms on my hand

Our Mealworms are organically grown on Canadian Wheat Bran, with carrot, apple, cabbage and celery for hydration (moisture).  Your order is hand-picked and packed (not scooped and dumped like some other Canadian or US suppliers), comes to you shipped in a food-grade cup in our wheat-bran substrate, with a little carrot or apple for moisture, and a 5% overcount too!

At The Worm Lady we guarantee you are getting the Top Quality mealworm feeders for all your 'mealworm eating critters', such as amphibians, reptiles, sugar gliders, chickens, quail, hamsters, hedgehogs, Koi Fish, rats, gerbils and other rodents, blue birds and other wild birds too.

Packaged in a food grade plastic container, in wheat bran bedding in the winter, our mealworms are ready for long term storage in dormancy upon arrival.  In the summertime, due to the heat, we ship our mealworms in a breathable cardboard container with egg crate and newsprint, and a baggie of wheat bran bedding (packed separately in the box) for you to transfer them into your plastic tub upon arrival, for long term storage.  No matter the time of year - everything you need for long term storage of your fresh mealworms is shipped with your order!

When you order your 'mealworms' from us, other than supplying a hydration source twice a week (i.e. carrot and apple), we send you everything you need to keep your mealworms organically healthy until you feed them to your pets.

 Mealworms | A good dietary addition for reptiles, fish and birds

Mealworms are the least expensive feeders available and are a good live worm feeder for reptiles, rodents, birds, and fish.  These live mealworms are high in protein, require little or no maintenance and have an excellent shelf life.  Their small size makes them ideal for juvenile reptiles and young birds, especially for juvenile reptiles with voracious appetites, but they should not be considered the main or sole 'staple' diet for your exotics.

Wait until the mealworms have just shed (very light color) and then feed your smaller reptiles those 'Freshly-Shed' meal worms (no larger than one-half inch and very pale in colour).  This is when these worms have a lower amount of chitin (the hard outer shell) and this will help your pet in digesting them more easily, and avoid impacting, due the the hard exoskeleton.

As with Super worms, ensure that their substrate is nutritionally sound, that they have adequate moisture, and that they are dusted with calcium prior to being fed to your exotic. 

Always remember that VARIETY is the key to the health and longevity of your reptile pets.. 

Your reptiles must get at least 5 to 7 different types of live feeders in order to get a reasonably balanced diet and stay healthy.  So Meal Worms are a good alternate live insect feeder to add to your exotic's main diet, for increased variety, but not as a 'main staple' live feeder.

At The Worm Lady we raise all our mealworms on grains (wheat bran, corn and oats) and fresh vegetables (carrot, apple, cabbage, celery), right here in our facility. This is your assurance that when you buy your live mealworm feeders from the Worm Lady you are getting the best available nutritional live feeders for your pets.

Mealworm Life Cycle

Mealworms that birds, reptiles, and other animals love aren’t really worms. They are the larvae of darkling beetles. There are over 20,000 different types of darkling beetles and mealworms come from the species Tenebrio molitor.

A darkling beetle experiences complete metamorphosis which means that it has four distinct stages of life. The four stages are egg, larva, pupa, and adult. The amount of time a darkling beetle spends in each stage can vary greatly due to environmental factors like temperature, humidity, food, and water.

Egg
The first stage of life is spent as an egg. The white bean-shaped egg is tiny and about the size of a speck of dust. The egg is sticky and is quickly concealed by dirt, dust, and substrate. It will take around one to four weeks for an egg to hatch and the larva to emerge.

Larva
The second stage of life lasts about eight to ten weeks and is spent as a brown larva. This is the stage where the insect is a mealworm. When first hatched, it is quite small but will grow to one to one and a half inches long.

Since it has a hard exoskeleton, the worm will need to molt and shed its hard outer shell in order to grow. Molts will occur ten to twenty times during this stage of life. A recently molted worm will be soft and white, but the exoskeleton will quickly harden.

A mealworm spends its time eating and growing in order to save up energy for the next transformation.

Pupa
During a mealworm’s last molt it will turn into a white alien-like pupa. It has no mouth or anus so does not eat. It does have leg and wing buds, but they do not function. The pupa is quite helpless and the only movement it can do is wiggle. This stage of life will last one to three weeks as the pupa transforms its organs and body into an adult.

Adult
The final stage of the insect’s life is as the darkling beetle and lasts one to three months. The beetle will be white with a soft exoskeleton. As the outer shell hardens, it will turn brown and then black. The beetle does have hard wings, but it is unable to fly.

After about one to two weeks of adult life, beetles will begin to mate and reproduce. A few days after mating, female beetles will burrow into soil or substrate and lay eggs. Darkling beetles are prolific breeders and females can lay hundreds of eggs during their adult lives.
