Great overall -easy to handle

The meal worms arrived alive and prolly more than 500. However, they were more small/medium than actual medium size. Also, the way they were packed in a crumpled piece of news paper meant that I had to let them get scattered all over the place then pick them up to get them into a new container. -Amber B

All but a couple of the worms were healthy and wriggling. Couldn't be better! -Diane R

I have ordered a lot of these meal worms. Most are alive, sometimes shortly after they start turning into beetles. I've got the kits to grow but must keep up with them daily. I prefer the giant mealworms unfortunately they have gotten smaller in size over the years! -Dawn K.

Great! Everything made it here on time and alive... However... I'm still getting used to pouring out 500 mealworms on my kitchen counter to get them into a larger container... This time one of the giant evil looking super worms was in the bag and plopped onto my counter. I just want you to know that I peed myself a little. -Jennifer C.

Great. I ordered 500 and 563 came with about 4 dead ones so it all came out great. I’ve started a breeding project with them and so far so good got a good amount of beetles and pupae sonig anyone’s looking for something like that these are a great way to get started. Packaging comes in a small box that fit in the mailbox and inside was my cool pack and the mealworms themselves were bagged. -Marrionna M.

Half worms were dead. Stinky" ice pack was Hot -Clayton S.

[Response from Seller: We are sorry to hear your mealworms didn't arrive in perfect condition! Mealworms are a perishable product so they can be sensitive to high temperatures during transit and after delivery. Ice packs help keep the shipment cool for the first 24 hours of transit- although they do eventually melt, putting the worms at risk of overheating. In the summer, we recommend having the package held for pick-up at your local post office or for guarantee live arrival, the worms must ship by Next Day service. If you are interested in complimentary replacement worms, please contact a customer service representative at 757-988-0301 and reference your order number, thank you!]

My leopard gecko says they're delicious! Seriously, I've never had a problem with these and I've ordered several times. There may have been a dead one or two, but in a batch of 500 I don't think that's a big deal. I did not try to count them but it looked like it was around 500. I will continue ordering from them. -Diane R.

by Linda Brissett on February 23, 2019

I ordered 500 mealworms, and received 380, some of which are so small it was not worth while keeping. My previous order of 500 giant mealworms was the same, I ordered 500 and received 415. That is not satisfactory to me. -Linda B.

I am hard pressed to believe there were 500 worms in the package. I get that they are packages by weight but I don’t think I had more than 300 worms. Granted I should have taken a picture of them but I did not. They seem healthy though. -Mike B.

The medium mealworms I ordered seemed VERY small. They were however all alive which was amazing and a great price! -Kayla G.

by Anonymous on September 3, 2018

The mealworms I ordered are not in a real case or packaging. In the past all the stuff I’ve ordered has been in a plastic container but these are in a cloth rucksack (breathable bag). If I knew that is what they’d ship in, I’d be okay but they shipped in a cardboard box in a cloth bag. The meal worms are very okay but the packaging is very not A-okay!! -Bri C.

My worms were delivered in the 90+ degree heat with the ice pack alive. This is always a concern for me during the summer. Normally I receive them in 1 day however this time it took 4 days. I live less than a mile away but am unable to make it to the warehouse during working hours so mail it is. My gliders were delighted to say the least! -Yvonne S.

This is the 2nd time I have ordered from Exotic Nutrition and will continue to do so. The mealworms arrived as ordered (just remember cold packs or heat packs). Also, I have found once a week, slice a potato and feed the worms for 24 hours, and then discard potato and return to the refrigerator. -Andrea B.

Shipped by weight there was hardly 500 mealworms in my order, half were dying and 2 weeks later they have all died. I followed care instructions to the letter but they arrived very lethargic and never perked up. Would not buy from again. -Heather C.
