The mealworm (Tenebrio molitor)

The life cycle of a mealworm consist of four stages: egg, mealworm, pupa and beetle.
In a few months, a female mealworm lays about 100-150 eggs, which are not observable with the naked eye. After about a week, the larvae hatch.
Mealworms can be fed throughout the year with high quality proteins and a low fat content and are a delicacy for birds, fish and reptiles. Mealworms are very suitable as food for birds in your garden, especially during the breeding period.
Finally, mealworms are very suitable as bait when fishing for trout.
They can be delivered either live or frozen.
