If temps are below 55 degrees and above 85 degrees, a “HOLD FOR PICK UP” at your local post office will automatically be issued. If insects sit in the mailbox for too long, they can overheat or freeze and die. “HOLD FOR PICK UP” simply means your package will be delivered to your local post office where you will be responsible for picking up. A tracking number will be emailed to you once they ship.

Mealworms are the larvae of the darkling beetle and are a high protein food source for many animals such as birds, chickens, reptiles, rodents, fish and human consumption. They can grow to be 1 inch long before transforming into a pupa, which will later transform into a beetle. Shelf life is about 3-4 months from egg to mealworm.
Superworms, also known as the King Worm, can grow 2 inches long and are the larvae of the darkling beetle. They are an excellent protein source for many animals such as birds, reptiles, and fish. Because superworms are so lively, they are a popular choice to use as fishing bait. Full grown superworms can bite and are generally used for large reptile feed. They will not pupate automatically like a mealworm and need to be isolated to transform into a pupa and later into a beetle. This gives them a longer shelf life of 6 months or more and makes them easy to maintain.
Frass is a natural plant fertilizer made from mealworm waste. It contains all the natural elements to make your soil rich and productive without any chemical ingredients. It is a natural bloom stimulant and known to have beneficial bacteria and fungi content. Along with nutrients, frass also contains chitin. This is an important component for keeping plant cell walls strong. These stronger cell walls help plants fend off pests and disease. Frass is not harmful for water run-off into lakes or streams and is chemical free and contains no additives. Frass is an excellent additive to any garden bed, agriculture crop, lawn, orchard, or indoor/outdoor plant.
