Live Mealworms, Certificate redeemable for 35 (Darkling Beetle larvae)and complete instructions. Darkling beetle larvae are an excellent choice for learning about insect metamorphosis and require very little care. Note: Continental USA only.

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.
