When Using With Reptiles/Amphibians

How to Feed

Mealworms can be fed as a treat or staple, depending on the animals you're feeding. Make sure to dust mealworms with a proper vitamin and mineral supplement before being fed to your pet. Feed mealworms using feeding tongs or in a worm dish.

Mealworms are great feeder insects for: leopard geckos, crested geckos, fat tail geckos, bearded dragons, lizards, geckos, wild birds, and fish. In fact, some fishermen swear by mealworms, calling them the ideal bait! Wild birds absolutely love mealworms as a treat - these high protein feeders provide a big energy boost!

 

How to Store

When Josh's Frogs ships mealworms they are already stored on wheat bran without food - exactly how you want to keep them. Keep mealworms at 45-55F to prolong their lifespan. As mealworms worms go bad, they will become dark in color and eventually turn black and spoil. Discard any black mealworms. Older mealworms may pupate. These pupae may still be offered to your pet. Discard adult beetles, as most animals find these distasteful. Under ideal conditions, mealworms should keep for several weeks.

 

When Using With Birds

How to Feed

Mealworms can be fed as a treat or staple for a wide variety of birds. Feed mealworms by placing them in a deep plastic dish or feeder like the Droll Yankee Window Feeder. Mealworms are climbers and will use wood sides to escape. We don't reccomend the use of wood bird feeders for mealworms. 

Wild birds absolutely love mealworms as a treat - these high protein feeders provide a big energy boost!

Thanks Review by Christa
Quality
It still amazes me how many mealie's can fit in such a little container. Didn't really find any dead worms so I'm very happy with the packaging and the quality of your product. Got 3 different feeders in this order and all were great pricing and quality. Thanks!! (Posted on 11/23/2018)
Beardies fav Review by Tiff
Quality
I have fed my beardies several different worms and these by far are their favorite. Due to the size they are easier for them to eat. (Posted on 8/13/2018)
Geckos love these! Review by kaze
Quality
My crested geckos love these but to the point they started turning up their nose at other insects so I probably shouldn't have ordered so many. They arrived well with few DOAs. There were die offs as it went along but this was probably because there was soooo many! 1100 count (Posted on 8/6/2018)
Very pleased Review by Joe

High quality and lasted a long time especially with the provided care sheet. When got them they were very lively. Better then any local chain pets store near me. (Posted on 8/6/2018)

Great Review by Laura
Quality
They all came in great condition. They also give you some extra Incase of some dying during shipping. They are a very good company and have great feeder insects. Will buy again. (Posted on 7/11/2018)
Awesome feeders, great quality! Review by Lanna
Quality
Josh's Frogs is the only place I buy my feeders! The mealworms are always in great condition and last for months in the fridge. I couldn't ask for better quality feeders, and definitely wouldn't find them in LPS. Thanks! (Posted on 6/3/2018)
Amazing Review by Lila
Quality
Before I began ordering from Josh’s Frogs I was forced to go to petco and depend on their feeder insects which were 1) not near the quality of Josh’s 2) almost always dead or close to it 3) never there when it should be (they told me multiple times that deliveries were tuesdays so I would come every Tuesday night and find empty shelves) and last but not least very over priced. Josh’s frogs met all my expectations and more the feeders were all alive and my leopard geckos love love love them almost as much as I love the price and quality! (Posted on 1/31/2018)
Amazing Review by Maddie
Quality
I have 5 leopard geckos, an anole, and I am about to get a beardie. Ive ordered 4 orders of mealworms and all have come with no dead ones, and it always comes with extras. They come in a great little container that they cant get out of and last a long time! I love buying from this place (Posted on 10/17/2017)
