About Mealworms: If you haven't used mealworms (Tenebrio Monitor) before, they are the larvae of a beetle with a high protein level. Because their diet consists of fresh cereal and vegetables, they are extremely palatable to birds and a safe food source.
Storage Instructions: Mealworms can be stored for several weeks. Transfer them to a shallow, smooth sided tray or tub. If the sides of your container are smooth enough, a lid should not be necessary. If a lid is used it should be well ventilated. Add 1 inch of bedding (wheat bran, oatmeal, or corn meal). Once a week place your worms at room temperature, add a carrot, and let them feed on it for a few hours, then remove the carrot and return to the refrigerator. Your mealworms can be kept for several weeks, under the right conditions.
