Backorders take 2-3 weeks to fulfill in most cases. Thanks for supporting our little farm on a little mountain in Maine. We hope you enjoy our wiggly giant mealworms as much as we enjoy feeding them to our happy flocks.
12 ounces of mealworms equals about 2000 giant mealworms. Our live mealworms count 160-170 worms per once at about 1″ long. They are sorted by width in a sifting tray, so some may be a bit longer or shorter than one inch.
When kept in the fridge they stop maturing to the next lifecycle stage between deliveries. Occasionally, one may pupate en route, but not to worry they won’t be turned down by a chicken. If allowed to sit and continue pupation, a Darkling Beetle will emerge, which in turn will lay eggs that hatch into tiny mealworms, thus closing the lifecycle loop.
