Superworms are NOT just large Mealworms. They are a completely different species.
The scientific name for the Superworm is Zoophobas Mario. Mealworms are classified
as Tenebrio molitor. Superworms contain less chitin (the stuff that makes the shells
hard) than mealworms, making them easier for your animals to digest.
Superworms are the larvae of a beetle and are loaded with protein. Superworms
are VERY active making them excellent feeders for animals that love to hunt and chase
their prey. Superworms have a soft body and a super long life span. Our Superworms
are sold by the bulk of 100, 250, 500, or 1000.
We sell a measured volume and not a counted volume. The worms vary in size and
sometimes you will get more than the count and sometimes less.
Bulk Superworms should be stored in a plastic box at room temperature. Feed
only small bits of vegetable matter, but not more than they will eat in a day.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not refrigerate Superworms. It will kill them.
