Mealworm care and Mealworm Feeding
Once you receive your live meal worms remove them from the shipping box immediately. If you’ve bought a small container of mealworms they can be easily stored in the container in the refrigerator. You can also store them in a cool place in a storage room or the garage for a shorter period of time.
If you’ve bought a bulk amount of mealworms then, you’ll need an appropriate container to store them. A plastic shoe box is one that will work fine. The lid will need ventilation holes. Place some old fashioned rolled oats (yes oatmeal) in the bottom of the container. Then place you new mealworms inside with another layer of oatmeal on top. Once you have them situated in their new short term home place the lid on top and in the refrigerator.
Keep Your Mealworms Alive and Fresh
Mealworms can survive several weeks in a dormant stage in the refrigerator. The optimum temperature is between 42 and 50 degrees. If you plan on having fresh live mealworms in the refrigerator for longer that a few weeks try this routine to keep your mealworms fresh.
They can last quite a while if you do this every two weeks. This will insure you have a continual supply of fresh live food and will enable you to use every meal worm you bought.
