Welcome to the Happy Mealworms website. Mealworms are a great source of nutrition for bluebirds and many reptile and amphibian pets. Happy Mealworms are raised in the USA.

1. Keep mealworms refrigerated, optimally between 42 and 50 degrees F.
2. Remove from refrigerator once per week, allow to warm up to room temp.
3. Add some thin slices of carrot or other vegetable or fruit (they like apples)
or a piece of moistened bread to their container so they can have a snack
and get some moisture.
4. After 5 or 6 hours, remove any uneaten fruit, vegetable or bread and put
mealworm container back in refrigerator.
5. If the mealworms are too crowded in their shipping container, place them
into a bigger plastic container with many little holes in the lid or, if the
container is at least 2 inches higher than the level of the mealworms and
bedding, you can do without a lid. Add some more wheat bran or other
grain product to the container.
1. Mealworms will keep in the refrigerator for several weeks to several months,
depending on the temperature and whether they stay fed and hydrated.
2. Mealworms will shed their skin several times and then transform into pupae
and then into beetles as they age, with warmer temperatures causing
a faster transition. (This is why you must refrigerate them.)
3. Mealworms eat wheat bran and other grain products, like 50 - 70% humidity,
an occasional piece of fruit or vegetable, and can be raised at home in a big bin.
