What are Swell Reptile Mini Tub Mealworms?
Swell Reptile Mini Tub Mealworms are a small tub of live mealworms that have been bred to provide birds, reptiles and amphibians with a nutritious meal full of protein. The live mealworms are a hassle-free choice, as they are clean and odourless and unlikely to carry more diseases than other food options, which is what makes them such a popular choice amongst reptile and bird owners. Live mealworms are oftentimes better suited for birds than dried mealworms, which can be off-putting to birds due to their similarity to dead worms.
- Nutritious and full of protein
- Clean and odourless
- Must be kept in a ventilated container
- Need to be cared for before feeding, small amount of water and rolled oats is enough
How long do live mealworms last?
Live mealworms last a few weeks, sometimes even longer if kept in colder conditions such as in a garage, and need to be kept in a ventilated container. The worms will need to be cared for before feeding, a small amount of water and rolled oats will suffice.
What do mealworms become?
Mealworms become Darkling beetles, which is a harmless beetle. Darkling beetles provide poor-quality feed but can be used as food if necessary, although many birds and reptiles may choose not to eat them, so it’s best to feed during their mealworm state.
How do I get rid of mealworms?
Live mealworms should not be thrown away, but if it is necessary to dispose of them, we recommend freezing them first to avoid causing environmental problems.
It is also recommended that only a small amount of live mealworms are put in a bird feeder for wild birds at a time, as they could run a potential risk of escaping, breeding and becoming a pest.
