 *LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEE: We suggest adding 1-2 ICE PACKS to your order to help ensure live delivery. If the temperature at the delivery location is above 85 degrees F. or below 32 degrees F, we suggest that you select Next Day Service shipping. If any other shipping method besides Next Day Service is used, the customer assumes responsibility for the arrival condition of the mealworms. View our full guarantee under Terms & Conditions.

Note: mealworms are not invidually counted for each order, based on weight not count.


  • You can start with as few as 150 live mealworms, but we recommend starting off with at least 500 (included in this kit). The more mealworms you start with, the better. Visit our Live Mealworm Department to buy extra mealworms, to get your colony growing faster.
  • Too little moisture slows growth and reduces size of your mealworms. Moisture is best provided with Thirsty Cricket (calcium-fortified gel water source). Add Thirsty Cricket to a low bowl (<½" tall), a jar lid works well. Thirsty Cricket will ensure your mealworms are getting the moisture they need, along with passing calcium on to your pets feeding on the mealworms.
  • Additional storage containers as well as replacement Mealworm Keeper and Mealworm Chow may be needed while maintaining your colony and can be purchased separately

Comes with everything you need to start breeding. The mealworm keeper came in a different bag than shown in the image. The mealworm chow is a hit and makes for come large mealies. Overall I'm happy with the purchase. -Jessica M.

I liked the quality of the storage container. The concern I have is that I do not believe that I received 500 MD mealworms. The worms arrived in a muslin bag (lightweight cloth) bag with newspaper. There were only a few dead ones, and I didn’t actually count them, but there is no way that 500 were in that bag. When I emailed, they told me to count the mealworms or weigh them. I couldn’t do either of those things because I had already put them in their habitat. -Jolinn B.

It was a lot less than 500 mealworms . And a lot were dead on arrival. But the kids enjoy it and the tank is good quality. -Tyler

I've had the breeder kit for almost 3 weeks now and I already have 2 beetles and over 70 Pupae. So excited that the life cycle is happening quickly. Can't wait until I can start feeding the 2nd generation to my Suggies (Yoda and Chewie). -Melinda D.
