Super Mealworms, the larvae stage of Zophobas morio, are a great snack food for chooks, birds, reptiles, frogs, turtles and all types of poultry. But as you will very quickly learn, it can get pricey for those tiny packs of baby mealworms from the local pet shop, so here at Aussie Chook Supplies we have put together a Super Mealworm breeder pack which has everything you need to get started. This has to be the simplest and cheapest way to have a continuous supply of these yummy morsels…
Being a larger sized mealworm they have a softer exoskeleton than traditional mealworms, which means they have a higher protein to shell ration (making them more digestable also). but mind your fingers during feeding time! Our Super Mealworms are NOT fed hormones at any stage of their life.
Each Mealworm Breeding Starter Kits contains the following stages (for immediate feeding and breeding stages) –
– Baby and Medium-sized Mealworms
– Large mealworms (ready to pupate) awesomely fast growth rates.
From there, you can also select if you want to add 10 or 20 beetles for instant egg laying to kick off the next generation.
If you want to breed your own mealworms but are unsure how to set things up or what to do, please see our Super Mealworm Breeding Information Sheet here.
Your Super Mealworms are the perfect stage/size for feeding out or setting up your breeding stages for future feeding. Please keep them at a stable room temperature (can be stored in a container or plastic drawer set with the Growth Media (also sold separately). DO NOT store them in a fridge as this runs the risk of killing them. Super mealworms are temperature sensitive and can die in cold temperatures (unlike normal mealworms, Tenebrio Molitor.)
