Your 1100 mealworms will arrive in a cotton bag inside of a box. You will hear them chewing and scraping from outside the box. It will be like something from a nightmare. You remind yourself that slick squirmy mealworms are on the will not touch without tools list.
Inside that cotton bag will be crammed an impossibly massive amount of intertwined crumpled newspaper. They're eating it.
It will be a half hour project involving a cookie sheet (to prevent escape) and tongs (because you can touch bugs and they don't bug you so long as they're dead...these are alive and very happy to see you) to gingerly remove the paper from the bag and flatten it to
remove the mealworms.
You won't begin this project until you remove the 100 or so friends attached to the cotton bag above the paper. 100 in a cup with bedding means you see a couple at a time. 100 this way is the start of your very own diy episode of fear factor.
You'll carefully remove every worm from the paper, making sure nothing escapes. You'll employ over interested predators (thanks Cole and Meimei!) to help make sure there are no survivors. The cookie sheet will REALLY be an episode of fear factor. They will all writhe horrifically as a horde and somehow communicate to huddle in the same corner of the pan (spreading them out with your tongs is an exercise in futility, they'll all be back in the corner in seconds). You'll see them the rest of the night when you close your eyes.
Then there's the other 200 clinging to the inside of the bag with their tiny horrible feet. They have remarkable strength and resolve for such simple organisms. They won't go with out a fight and touching them through the bag is out. You'll gag.
So...you'll spend another half hour alternately cutting the bag away and using tongs to clear the hold fasts. It'll be painstaking. You'll quadruple check for runaways.
You realize the "1100" they sent you is more like a round 2k after counting for a minute. Only 3 will have perished before arrival. Dumping them into two bins with bedding will take a mere three seconds and be oddly satisfying.
Oh and the company you ordered from will accidentally double your cup of 250 wax worms. At least they're already in cups...but you have two little geckos.
I'm really going to enjoy them chowing down on these worms. Worms are jerks.
They had a long trip to Alaska, but they faired well. I placed them in a tank with sawdust, corn meal, and two potatoes sliced in half to keep them healthy until they were fed to my pets. It's been two months and I still have 200 or so meal worms left. They're all alive. Only a couple have gone into the cocoon stage. I don't think there was a single dead meal worm in my order. They've remained fat and healthy. They're active and my pets eat them like there's no tomorrow.
I LOVE the fact these are organically grown meal worms and because of that I will definitely be back for more in the future. You can tell the high quality of these meal worms. They are much healthier and larger than other meal worms I've ordered from 'non organic' sellers. They are obviously very well-cared for and are very clean and active. I do recommend taking them out of the package as soon as you get them (although, in all honesty, I left mine in the bag for about 3 weeks before transferring them to the terrarium- and they remained healthy in the bag). Giving them some corn meal for food and a little slice of potato for water will keep them alive and healthy longer if you cannot use 1100 meal worms quickly.
I didn't count my meal worms, but I'm guessing I received well over 1100. I was SO impressed with this order. Well worth the price. Very healthy, fat, happy meal worms that have been fed to many different pets of mine- all of which eat them up and remain fat and happy themselves. Definitely a fan of Gimminy Crickets and Worms. Great seller! I'd definitely order from them again- and I'd recommend them to anyone else looking for organic meal worms for their pets as well.
- Worms were tiny. Size reference: as long as a penny is wide.
- A lot of black dead ones.
And since I was expecting 1,100+ good sized mealworms, I was shocked to see how puny they were. I didn’t count them one by one, but I’m convinced there’s WAY less than 1,000. I actually thought possibly I was missing half the order and it was coming in two bags since the shipping still reflected in transit. But to my surprise it updated as delivered the next day.
I’d go as far as saying this is false advertising. The photos show worms that look large and healthy. These are NOT as pictured.
