Large Mealworms (Cupped)
Mealworms are the larvae of the Tenebrio molitor darkling beetle. They're a very popular feeder for a variety of smaller reptiles, amphibians, and arachnids, including leopard geckos and tarantulas.
Our pre-cupped mealworms are great for hobbyists that want a convenient alternative to "boxed" or "bagged" feeders, and pet stores or resellers wanting a professional pre-packaged solution. Our large mealworms are approximately 1" in length.

Mealworms should be kept refrigerated between 42 and 50 degrees. This can be accomplished in a wine cooler or the top shelf of your refrigerator door. They will become dormant and stay in perfect condition for up to 30 days at that temperature.
Lightly dust with calcium powder before feeding.
