Darkling Beetle Breeding Kit includes: Two breeding habitats, food/bedding, forceps, screen sifter, 250 live larvae (mealworms)redeemable only in the 50 US states, and complete instructions on starting a beetle colony. Darkling beetle larvae are an excellent choice for learning about insect metamorphosis.

The Darkling Beetle (Tenebrio molitor) is a holometabolic insect which means that it transitions through 4 life stages: egg, larvae (AKA mealworm), pupa, and adult Beetle. The mealworms feed for about 3 months and then transition into the pupae phase. After 7 to 14 days the adult Darkling Beetle emerges from its pupa. After maturity (turn black in color) the adults breed and the female starts producing eggs after about a week. It takes another week for the eggs to hatch into baby mealworms. Beetles will live for 3-5 months and produce several thousand eggs every few weeks.
