We here at Flinn and our vendor will both do everything we can to ensure that we get your live material to you when scheduled. That said, sometimes the collection of living items does not go as planned and they are unexpectedly unavailable despite everyone’s very best efforts. When that happens, we will let you know as soon as we are notified so you can reschedule or cancel your order.

Product Details

Mealworms (Tenebrio molitor) are clean, odorless and easy to maintain. They are ideal for classroom use and illustrating an insect life cycle with completely metamorphosis (egg, larva, pupa and adult). A continuous culture is also excellent as a food supplement for a variety of animals, such as fish, birds, amphibians and reptiles.
