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.
