Mealworm Care Instructions

  • Container: Use a plastic or glass container with a secure lid to prevent escape. Ensure there are small ventilation holes for airflow.

  • Substrate: Provide a substrate for the mealworms to burrow into. Rolled oats, wheat bran, or a mixture of both can be used. This gives them a place to pupate.

  • Temperature: Keep the container at a temperature between 70-80°F (21-27°C). Mealworms are most active and reproduce well in this range.

  • Lighting: Mealworms don't require specific lighting, but they do best in a consistent light/dark cycle.

  • Food: Feed mealworms a balanced diet. They can eat a variety of grains and vegetables. Common options include oats, carrots, apples, and potatoes. Remove any uneaten food regularly to prevent mold.

  • Moisture: Provide a moisture source, such as slices of fruits or vegetables. However, be cautious not to make the environment too damp, as mealworms can be prone to mold in overly moist conditions.

  • Cleaning: Regularly clean out waste and uneaten food to maintain a clean environment. This helps prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.

  • Life Stages: Mealworms go through different life stages - egg, larva (mealworm), pupa, and beetle. If you're breeding mealworms, be prepared for the entire life cycle.

Remember that mealworms can be used as a nutritious treat for pets like reptiles, birds, and fish. If you plan to use them as feed, ensure they come from a reliable source or raise them yourself using the care instructions provided.
