MEALWORMS IN STOCK AND READY TO SHIPWhen adding mealworms to your pet's diet, it is strongly suggested to add a 'no-phosphorus' calcium supplement to the food, such as Glider-Cal (see below). Live mealworms are high in phosphorus which partially blocks calcium absorption, a 'no-phosphorus' calcium supplement such as Glider-Cal will compensate for the loss of absorption.
Feed mealies as bonding treats, and as a protein supplement. We recommend 10-15 medium size mealworms, or 7-8 Giant mealworms 2 times per week. Remember ... mealworms are high in fat and should be limited.
You MUST select Priority Mail Shipping for all live mealworm orders at checkout. We do not guarantee live delivery with Ground (UPS) shipping. We suggest adding ICE PACKS (see below) during warm weather or HOT PACKS during colder temps. See full guarantee below.
Live Arrival Guarantee:Our goal is to have your live mealworms delivered to you in perfect condition. Due to high temperatures during certain times of year across the country, there is a chance that the worms will be compromised at some point during transit. The most reliable way to ship during warmer temperatures is by Next Day Air Service (if UPS guarantees delivers to your area in morning). The second most reliable method is by Priority Mail Service (US Postal).
If you are ordering live mealworms along with dry goods, it may be more economical to order the worms separate. Simply place one order for the worms, then place a second order for your dry goods (using Ground Service). This may save on shipping costs.
You must have your orders shipped to a place where they can be received and cared for upon delivery. We can not guarantee live delivery if no one was available to receive the order, or if the delivery driver was unable to make delivery on the first attempt, or if your worms were delivered to a street mail box (mail boxes get very hot).
We do not guarantee live delivery if the temperatures in your area are above 83 degrees F, or below 32 degrees F, at time of delivery. We strongly suggest that you add one or more ice packs to your order during check-out.We understand that you want to ship in the most economical way, but we will not assume responsibility for live delivery if you select a slower shipping method and the worms did not arrive alive. If you select Next Day Air Service (and UPS guarantees delivery to your area in the morning) we will guarantee live delivery, but if you select a slower shipping method, you would assume responsibility for the worms. Typically Priority Mail Service works well, and is an inexpensive way to ship. 95% of the worms that we ship this way get delivered in excellent condition, but because this service does not have a guarantee delivery time or delivery date, it can sometimes be unreliable.
If your worms do not arrive alive, and the above conditions were met, you must contact us with-in 24 hours of delivery to file a claim for replacement worms. We cannot make exceptions to this policy. We will replace the worms at no charge, but you would be responsible for the cost to re-ship, and we will not guarantee live arrival for the replacement shipment unless they are shipped by Next Day Air Service.
Read what our customers have to say ....This is a worry-free vendor! They are low-priced, and they ship fast! They send email purchase information, as well as shipping tracking information. I purchase mealworms from them and the worms always arrive in excellent condition, and looking better than the pictures they post on their website. I have purchased from them 3 times now and HIGHLY recommend them! A Very Satisfied Customer!!
---- Aloha, I received my order of mealworms (2000) and was happy to see that they all made the trip to Hawaii in excellent shape and really lively, but the best part was how fast they got here, I am impressed! The bird we feed would rather eat your mealworms than the ones that I “used to”buy at our local pet supply store. I’m glad I found your web site, (I think the bird is glad I found your web site) We’ll be ordering again. Mahalo and Aloha! Gary kaneshiro

I keep geckos in my classroom. I ran out of meal worms in the middle of the year and placed an order with this company. They quickly filled my order and were careful that the shipment didn't arrive on a weekend as I asked. They were very reasonably priced. I would recommend this company to anyone needing their products. Michael H.
