Due to demand and breeding cycles taking time, there will be limited numbers available.
Mealworms, the larvae stage of Tenebrio molitor, are a great snack food for chooks as they are packed with protein and chooks absolutely love them. The cheapest way to have a continuous supply for your Feathered Family Members is to breed your own and we have everything you need to get started.
Also suitable for feeding to birds, reptiles, frogs and all types of poultry.
Each Mealworm Breeding Starter Kits contain all four stages of the mealworm growth cycle –
– Bedding with eggs
– Baby and Adult Mealworms
– Live Darkling beetles.
If you want to breed your own mealworms but are unsure how to set things up or what to do, please see our Mealworm Breeding Information Sheet here.
Mealworms at the perfect stage/size for feeding out can be stored in a container in the fridge, in a small amount of bran with airholes in the lid. This keeps them dormant and inactive due to the cold temperature but when they are removed and warm up at room temperature, they will become active and move as per usual.
All orders will be sent using Australia Post EXPRESS POST and only sent on Mondays or Tuesdays to ensure arrival before the weekend.
Pickup is available from Melbourne South-Eastern suburbs.
