Mealworms Scientific Name: Tenebrio molitor Common Name: Mealworm
A bulk of one thousand count mealworms can be kept in a large plastic container, with air holes in the top. You should cover the mealworms with a thick layer of wheat middling, oat meal, or Mealworm Bedding (#92743) to provide bedding and a food source.
Mealworms are relatively easy to keep. Upon arrival place them in a refrigerator, set at 45°F, until ready for use. When you are ready to use them, remove the desired amount and leave at room temperature until they become active, roughly 24 hours before feeding to your animal.
If you plan to keep the mealworms for longer than two weeks, remove them from the refrigerator, and let them become active. Once they become active, place a slice of potato on the top of the bedding to provide moisture, and let them sit for 24 hours. Then, place them back in the refrigerator.
Associated with love, hope, and happiness, bluebirds are frequently referenced in music and literature. Our fascination with them goes beyond their beautiful tru-a-lee song and their presence as a sign of spring.
