The Introduction Of Mealworms

        Mealworms are actually insects and not worms. They are usually found in dark and damp places. There are 4 stages in their life cycle, and that is the egg, larva (mealworm), pupa and adult (beetle) stages.

        A bite from a mealworm beetle only hurts about for 10 seconds. In the life of a female mealworm, it can lay about 500 eggs ! * very scary * Don't try to catch mealworms in their adult stages because they are really FAST !
