Live Mealworms, 250 (Darkling Beetle larvae) Ship ASAP, and complete instructions, MW500A
Live Mealworms,250 (Darkling Beetle larvae) Ship ASAP and complete instructions. Darkling beetle larvae are an excellent choice for learning about insect metamorphosis and require very little care. Note: Continental USA only. The Darkling Beetle (Tenebrio molitor) is a holometabolic insect which means that it transitions through 4 life stages: egg, larvae (AKA mealworm), pupa, and adult Beetle. The mealworms feed for about 3 months and then transition into the pupae phase. After 7 to 14 days the adult Darkling Beetle emerges from its pupa. After maturity (turn black in color) the adults breed and the female starts producing eggs after about a week. It takes another week for the eggs to hatch into baby mealworms. Beetles will live for 3-5 months and produce several thousand eggs every few weeks.
